Licensed Professional Counselor
Hi, I am Julia DeFrancisis (She/Her/Hers)
I work with clients in late adolescents and adults. I specialize in helping people cope with life transitions and anxiety as well as those struggling with substance use, depression, work stress. I love supporting and providing guidance to people who want change in their lives.
I use a person-centered approach to build the therapeutic relationship and utilize techniques from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing to meet the client where they are in their change process and to capitalize on their successes with already made change. I also focus on building self-worth and self-care as a foundation for change.
I graduated from Chatham University with a Master of Science in Counseling Psychology.
I accept Highmark and have a private pay rate of $130 with a sliding scale if that is not affordable.
