Together with my clients, I create a safe and supportive space to explore the issues where they feel stuck and unable to move forward in their lives. From a client-centered approach we uncover core false beliefs, attachment patterns and other difficulties often at the root of suffering, which blocks many from living a life of inner peace and connection to others. I help facilitate the nurturing of internal strengths within the person to cultivate acceptance, healing and growth. My focus is on eating disorders, substance abuse, self-harm and other maladaptive behaviors, including underlining issues of anxiety, depression and trauma.

Relationships between husbands, wives, lovers, boy/girl friends, children or parents can be tricky. Happy, satisfying and fulfilling relationships require attention, energy, fun, humor, communication, time and investment of yourself. Too often relationships are hampered by misunderstandings, hurtful actions, stress, differences of opinions, unmet needs, and different expectations. Personality changes over time, affairs of the heart, infidelity, unmet sexual intimacy, abuse, cruel words, neglect, self-centeredness, different communication styles, different goals, values and dissimilar interests or fun activities also create unhappiness in relationships. Dr. Carol Francis has worked with relationships satisfaction for 32 years. 310-543-1824 or RelationshipSatisfactionNow.com and drcarolfrancis.com pathstosuccesses.com

Do you have anxiety and find yourself worrying all the time? Do your relationships suffer because you worry? Worrying affects your mind and body. It often involves nervousness, panic, fear, obsessive-compulsiveness, and embarrassment or worse, shame. Whether you have one of these experiences or all of them, worry disconnects you from loved ones. This leads to sadness or depression. You don't have to be alone with your worry (or sadness). Engaging in treatment is a difficult decision, but your commitment will be the first step toward releasing the emotions that stand in the way of you feeling safe, calm, confident and connected.

*ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS* The fight you had last night was bad. Really bad. Your relationship is in trouble. Your marriage is unraveling. You know when you walk through the door, you’re going to have to finish having “that conversation.” The one you never finished last night because you both needed to “sleep on it.” The one that you know is just going to end with arguing, shouting, crying, and someone waking out of the door. The same argument you’ve been having for years. The one that keeps you awake thinking, "Marriage isn’t supposed to be like this. Other couples don’t fight this much right?"

The best psychotherapy is tailored to the individual, not limited by a single theory or point of view. All the evidence on psychotherapy confirms that the most important contribution to success is the therapeutic relationship. As an experienced practitioner I know this to be true. I practice using approaches that are integrated and tailored for each person and situation. Whatever perspectives are found to be helpful, I consistently attend to providing a relationship that is safe, mutual, nonjudgmental, and non-controlling. It is an accepting relationship built on mutual understanding and evolving trust that helps us all.

Life as a teen and young adult has changed! Going through the teen years is challenging enough. But today in a 24/7 social media world, it's even more difficult. The top concerns I see with today's teens are: * Teens always had to maintain their image at school. Now they feel under pressure to maintain their social media image too, constantly comparing themselves to the on-line images of others. * Teens are facing depression and anxiety at alarming rates. Their emotions feel too overwhelming to get out from under. * The pressure to perform is at an all time high and many cannot cope with the anxiety.

Seeking out help takes courage. There is a level of vulnerability that is required when meeting someone new and sharing material that has possibly never been shared before. In fact, this can feel daunting. Perhaps you aren't where you'd like to be in life. There's a chance you aren't satisfied in your relationship(s). Or maybe you just need some help because what is being done simply is not working anymore. I believe the goal is to grow into our healthiest and most authentic selves.

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Palos Verdes Estates using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.
