My goal is to provide you with compassionate understanding and a clear plan for moving forward, whatever this means for you. It may mean recovering from depression, overcoming anxiety and stress, healing and improving your relationships, learning to cope with difficult situations, or improving communication. It could also mean helping you enjoy life more, regardless of what is happening around you. I have been providing therapy to individual adults, teens, couples and families for many years. I work with a diverse range of emotional, behavioral & relationship issues, utilizing the most effective strategies.
In addition to general practice, I specialize in couples therapy. My work with couples ranges from conflict resolution, improving communication, healing from infidelity and increasing intimacy, to amicably ending a relationship. I give you practical tools to reduce conflict, enhance communication and increase relationship satisfaction, as well as successfully co-parent after a relationship ends.
I am a compassionate, interactive therapist who believes that the most effective therapy combines nurturing support with concrete tools and direction. I use a results-oriented approach, so you spend less time in my office and more time enjoying your life. Please visit www.francismithmft.com for more information.
