Maureen Francois, LCSW
Hey! How brave of you to research your therapy options. I know it can feel so scary to take this first step. And you did it!
I want you to know that you are not alone, that you matter and that I am so excited to have the opportunity to walk along aside you as you process and work through some of the things that are eating at you. Oftentimes, people tell me that they don’t know what therapy will be like. My approach to therapy is grounded in the belief that you know yourself the best. Together we can discuss and implement strategies to make things feel lighter.
I’ve had extensive experience with maternal and child mental health. I love to work with women who are prenatal and postpartum and trying to figure out the whole motherhood thing. I’ve had great success in working with women who are experiencing depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, or just feeling in a “funk.” Women often experience these things when they have had recent transitions, life changes or change in support systems.
I also have a certificate in play therapy and provide play therapy services to children and families. Play is a child’s language. It’s an effective way for children to express strong emotions. Sometimes children have challenges at home and school. Sometimes parents are feeling overwhelmed and need some support. My hope is to partner with parents and children to help them find a healthy outlet!
Feel free to call to see if we are a good fit, if you have any questions, or want to set an appointment! I look forward to meeting you!
