Your presence is the most precious gift you can give to another human being.

Turning Obstacles into Opportunities
Transpersonal Psychology is based on the work of C.G. Jung, Carl Rogers, Roberto Assagioli, Abraham Maslow and others. It combines systems theory with person-centered, humanistic and spiritual psychologies.
Have you ever asked yourself while in the midst of a difficult personal crisis, “Is this all there is”? At a crossroad in our lives, many of us have wondered if and how we can find a way out of our painful dilemma.
For a Transpersonal Counsellor, resolution lies in our answer to Einstein’s famous questions, “Is the Universe a Friendly Place or Not”? Our answer determines our experience.
From a place of fear, we will likely seek strategies designed to protect us from feeling our pain. However, in the long run, this can be more of a problem as we are left feeling alone and essentially caught in the grips of repeating patterns of negative beliefs about ourselves and those around us. Our struggle usually persists, with growing intensity and becomes harder and harder to cope with.
If we can stand in a place of loving forgiveness, we are more likely to drop our elaborate and isolating defense systems and by doing so, discover a deeper, more hopeful truth about ourselves. As we open to the possibility of something new, we create the opportunity for healing and growth. The goal is to remove the blocks to our happiness and in the process, discover a greater life purpose.
I feel that today’s session was of great value and has given me significant food for thought and self-reflection.
You were a HUGE help in getting us through a very tough time and we really appreciated your gentleand supportive manner.
My time with you was incredibly valuable and I learned a lot. On another note, I’ve never see “S” so happy. He’s sure in a good place right now. I’m glad he went to see you. Thanks again for everything.
Fran uses a type of therapy specifically created for couples called Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). I have been to couples therapy with previous partners (and therapists), and I have never felt so supported during a session. The techniques she uses help my partner and I really hear each ...
I would highly recommend Fran as a therapist for any struggling couple, as well as for any individuals needing extra emotional support and understanding.
I appreciate your calm and caring energy.
My wife and I are finally moving forward together.
I have learned so much and will be forever grateful to Fran for guiding me through this journey.
We have had a very positive experience and will be seeing Fran again. It helped us as my husband is moving back in with me tomorrow.
