Frank offers you a comfortable, safe space where you can share your story. You’ll be met with curiosity about the culmination of events that led you to therapy; nothing is off the table. Together you’ll analyze thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. You’ll feel soothed by humor and acceptance, while experiencing care that’s direct, yet compassionate. In every session You’ll be encouraged to take stock of what you have to be grateful for, working toward feeling fulfilled in your life.
Anxiety, depression, anger, and their underlying, associated emotions are some of the issues that Frank can help his clients to address. He feels that it’s helpful to explore what is beneath the surface, digging into cognitions to fully assess thought processes. He primarily practices from a person-centered perspective with an emphasis in existential and cognitive behavioral therapy. Frank uses active listening, empathy, and the brain-body feedback loop, paying close attention to the bodily sensations attached to individual emotions, like a racing heart, chest tightness, and shaking knees. He also can take a spiritual approach to counseling, feeling it’s helpful for clients to feel connected on that level and because he’s spiritually grateful for the opportunity to help people.
With a Master’s degree in Counseling from the University of Colorado Denver, Frank has experience providing care in private practice and in an inpatient hospital. Before becoming a therapist, he spent several years working in the intellectual/developmental disability field, assisting clients with community interaction and job skills, as well as emotional regulation and behavioral management.
