Natasha Francis M.S., Licensed Professional Counselor & Certified Rehabilitation Counselor
“You have considerable power to construct self-helping thoughts, feelings and actions as well as to construct self-defeating behaviors. You have the ability, if you use it, to choose healthy instead of unhealthy thinking, feeling and acting.” Albert Ellis
“To me, being a counselor involves teaching others to learn from their experiences, to listen to themselves, and to strive to better their quality of life.”
