While my training is grounded in modern psychodynamic theories, I frequently draw upon cognitive -behavioral, mindfulness, humanistic, neurocognitive, and skills-based approaches to inform my treatment.
Life is a journey. Too often, though, we find ourselves adrift, feeling alone, scared, and without a map to navigate. I believe that therapy provides a trusting, compassionate, and facilitative relationship for moving through life's uncertain waters. My goal is to help you feel more in control of your life by gaining insights into patterns and relationships that may hold you back, and to develop practical skills for coping with life's inevitable challenges. I believe that, together, we can help you realize your potential, feel more connected to others, and set your own course on your journey.

I tailor my approach based on each clients needs utilizing various modalities including, CBT , AEDP, Psychodynamic, and Internal Family Systems.
I believe in a collaborative therapy experience to assist clients in their process of self-discovery. As the cornerstone of my approach, I believe that unconditional support through the therapeutic relationship provides a strong foundation for this journey. This support is often missing from our lives and when we start to experience challenges or road blocks we can start to feel more isolated and alone. If you are feeling stuck or dissatisfied with your life starting therapy can be the first step to creating change.

Francesca’s approach to therapy is a blend of psychodynamic, person-centered, narrative, and cognitive behavioral theories.
Francesca believes in the power of presence and empathy in helping individuals feel heard and understood. She believes people are the experts of their own lives and have the knowledge within them to heal. The stories we tell ourselves create our lives, and when we are struggling it is easy to relive the same story over and over. By challenging these stories, we can rewrite our lives and experience life in a new and hopeful way. In the safe, non-judgmental, and validating environment of therapy we can make connections from our past to bring insight and healing into our present way of being.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists

How does cognitive behavioral therapy work?

Cognitive behavioral therapy works by exploring how your thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. CBT helps you identify distortions in your thinking. For example, you may tend to jump to the worst case scenario (catastrophizing) or think in extremes (all-or-nothing thinking). A therapist can teach you how to push back against those thoughts to ultimately change your feelings and behavior for the better. They can also provide coping skills to better deal with stressors and challenges.

When do I know to seek treatment with cognitive behavioral therapy?

It’s reasonable to consider cognitive behavioral therapy if you struggle to manage difficult emotions or behaviors to such an extent that you are not getting the most out of life on a day-to-day basis. If you want a shorter term, concrete, skills-based approach, CBT is a great option. (By contrast, other types of therapy may devote more time to exploring your past and its effects.) The decision to seek CBT also depends on the condition you’re treating; CBT is an effective treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, and many other disorders.

How can I find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else?

To find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else, you may want to begin by discussing the person’s problem, researching cognitive behavioral therapy, and assessing whether the approach is the right fit. You could then reach out to a few cognitive behavioral therapists in this directory, explain the scenario, have a consultation with those available, and determine who could be a good match.

Why is CBT such a popular form of therapy?

CBT has become a popular form of therapy because it is effective and accessible. Robust research has demonstrated that CBT is an effective treatment for many mental health conditions. And CBT can be learned in relatively few sessions, which means that many people can engage in the process, afford it, and see results quickly. It involves learning concrete skills such as disputing unhelpful thoughts; these skills can also be taught and spread widely.
