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

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.
