Life post-college has left you feeling stuck. Maybe you're lonely and isolated . . . no thanks to the pandemic. Maybe your first job is super stressful, making you question if you're even in the right field to begin with. Or perhaps social anxiety is making it near-impossible to make friends. Whatever the reason, there's a disconnect between where you pictured yourself at this stage of life and your current reality.

Your inner voice is critical and you never feel good enough. You are full of self-doubt and lack compassion for yourself. I can help you to strengthen your belief in yourself, your identity, and your self-worth. Sadness and anxiety can paralyze us and block us from experiencing the life we deserve. I want to help you to live more fully in the present, by healing difficult feelings and experiences from your past and by helping you to have the confidence and faith to handle whatever may come your way. I want to help you find hope, to decrease your anxiety, develop a healthier self-esteem, and to experience increased fulfillment.

New beginnings can often be disguised as painful endings. I work closely with those who have been through tragic events, suffered childhood abuse, those who have been victimized by others, as well as those who might feel like they have nowhere left to turn. My goal is to help you find your inner strength, and to courageously be free to display it and be proud. I am empathetic to my client’s needs, ambitious to provide support, and offer a nonjudgmental space for you to share and truly be heard.

We all want to feel good about ourselves. We want positive healthy relationships and live our lives as fully as possible. But sometimes life or relationships can become difficult and overwhelming. People come to therapy because they want to feel better. I respect the courage it takes to reach out for help in seeking a greater understanding of yourself and to work toward personal growth. My role as a therapist is to help you overcome the obstacles keeping you from feeling the way you want and from fully enjoying your life.

Imagine the freedom of being your anxiety-free self. As an Asian American therapist, I provide culturally appropriate care to address generational trauma, anxiety and depression, unlock unmet needs, discover purpose and find balance in life. Do you feel lost in your thoughts and tied down to responsibilities for others (maybe a partner/spouse, work, family, church or even your child)? Sometimes this causes loss of self and identity, overwhelming anxiety, low self-esteem, perfectionism, depression and dissatisfaction with life. We believe that hardship must be overcome by ourselves, however with time we learn we can't do it alone.

Relief from anxiety, depression, fears or angers gives you room to live your life fully. Self-improvement (your mind, body, self-esteem, capacity for satisfying/exciting relationships and powerful career advances) can move you leaps and bounds toward a richer, lively life. Eliminating habits (smoking, over-eating, lack of exercise, substances, etc) frees you to be you. Creating new paths after divorce, death, traumatic disruptions, leads toward a self-directed future. Through many different therapeutic approaches--well researched and tested-- you can attain your goals & dreams for your fuller, peaceful life. www.drcarolfrancis.com or call 310-543-1824.

I believe in the importance of creating a trusting, safe and collaborative therapeutic relationship with my clients. I view each session as an opportunity to grow by working through personal challenges, developing greater self-awareness, learning to set healthy boundaries, and exploring the positive and negative styles of thinking. I believe that although treating symptoms is important, people must look at the deeper underlying issues that might include low self-esteem, codependency, or childhood trauma.

There's really something to be said about the challenges of exploring, understanding and harnessing our very active internal lives in the attempt to make sense of it all, to feel safe in our day to day. I'm endeared to the process and feel that in order to heal we have to work with others, be it community, loved ones, or Psychologist, to gather the best parts of ourselves and turn the incredibly complicated, painful and fragile into things elegant, agile, and straight-forward. The therapeutic process as a living and breathing construction. To build and strengthen the scaffolding in order to find authenticity, uniqueness and courage

This negative self talk leads to depression, anxiety, low self esteem , etc.
I was trained in rendering brief and short term therapy since we all want quick results. How do I do that? I am interactive with my clients and not just provide “talk therapy”, but rather, we will co-create a plan together to help you achieve positive results. I hold my clients accountable and will assign homework. I will give you my input, impressions, and at times, challenge you when those defenses are up. In life, when we’re faced with challenges, it only promotes growth and strength. At the same time, we will give you the positive regard, reflective listening, and be your cheerleader. We will empower you, not enable you.

Self Esteem Therapists
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum.
