Hello and welcome!
My name is Amanda Francis and I am an LPC in the state of CT. I am thrilled to bring years of clinical experience in private practice and other community counseling settings to the online counseling world. I have worked with teens, young adults, adults, and couples to help them achieve their mental health and wellness goals.
I provide a safe haven for people to share thoughts and feelings about their life and work collaboratively to problem solve. Let's work together to create your best life!
It is important for you to know that I have been "on the other side of the couch" (or screen for that matter)!
I have actively participated in therapy throughout my life and have benefitted from talking to a neutral, supportive person that directs me to make healthy decisions for myself. Just like you, I have had personal struggles. We all have! Through therapy and gaining understanding of myself and my experiences, I have become the friend, sister, wife, and mother that I am proud of today.
I want people to know it is ok to ask for help, and I am here to support you on your journey to live your best life.

My approach is to first establish a relationship and connection with my clients. A strong foundation of trust is an important indicator that change will happen in our therapeutic journey! I will conduct a thorough intake evaluation or interview with the client to best understand their history and life perspective. This will be discussed empathy of the client's experiences.
Once I have an understanding of the client, I then
- use diagnostic tools to better understand the client's diagnosis
- make a treatment plan and specific treatment goals with the client
- discuss work towards goals each session
- provide time in each session for the client to discuss whatever they wish with me
