Thought Leader Interview Jan. 2019
Francesca has an uncanny ability to create a grounded space where even a group of people who may not know each other somehow feel safe being vulnerable and authentic. She is able to listen deeply and weave together and crystallize the thoughts and reflections she hears into a coherent narrative that both makes us feel heard and understood, and also helps us to see the connections between us and bring us closer together. She is truly a gift.
My feelings of self-loathing and anxiety were overwhelming. I wanted to understand, confront and heal the core wounds that had been running unchecked in my life. I felt a lot of shame and weakness around needing support. Francesca made me feel embraced, understood and hopeful. She was clearly knowledgeable, passionate, and committed to helping others experience holistic healing. After months of working with Francesca, I still to this day, leave our meetings feeling more grounded, whole and at peace. I am now able to engage in richer, fuller and more meaningful relationship with myself and with those close to me. Francesca’s guidance, support, compassion, patience and hope are active and tangible and you cannot help but experience them by being around her and working with her! I would recommend Francesca without a doubt! Finding someone to work with is such a large part of many people’s personal journey in healing. Francesca strikes the perfect balance between pushing and holding with boundaries and compassion. She inspires healing from within.
I had been feeling a lot of anxiety and googled “feminist, LGBT, life coach,” and found Francesca. I knew I wanted to see someone for a long time but the two people I tried before did not reveal my inner psyche to me in the same way. Francesca’s practice aligns with the way I want to heal and is both soothing, kind and caring, and also intense in the way that it forces me into a reckoning with some aspect of myself, my past, or things that I’ve been holding onto that no longer serve me. I feel more comfortable creating boundaries between work and my life outside work. I feel more comfortable with my natural hair and have worn it down all week, which I’ve never really done at work. I’m having fewer anxious, obsessive thoughts and am overall calmer and more grounded overall.1. I can self-soothe more effectively when anxious/obsessive thoughts arise2. I know where the root of emotional ailments derive3. I am more comfortable with myself and my appearance.The way that Francesca totally immerses herself in my psyche and takes an incredibly empathic, calming, and intense approach towards putting my consciousness back inside myself to discover the inception of certain feelings/sensations/obsessions. She helps me connect the dots in an incredibly intense and transcendent way. Healing is not easy in the way I thought it would be but it is rigorous and connective and helps clear the mist that may be clouding you from achieving inner peace. I would definitely recommend that others work with Francesca.
In my 40’s I lost my father and needed support. Francesca provided me with a safe, trustworthy environment free of judgement. She brought me on a healing journey. Francesca has a natural caregiving presence allowing for her clients to feel relaxed. My sessions with her often result in a restful and productive week. Francesca is compassionate, empathetic and wise, she serves as an active listener and guides you through your challenge allowing you to make clear forward-thinking decisions. Francesca’s healing voice, smile and spirit will stay with me forever.
Before working with Francesca, I was working towards healing various traumas. However, the methods I was using were insufficient in moving past certain challenges. Now, working with Francesca has given me ability to calm my body and mind, as well as turning on its head, my approach to stress and life. I have been given the gift of awakening an awareness about how to create space from my emotions through mindfulness. Francesca helps me move through current and past traumas, resentments and blockages with a 3 fold approach combining psychoeducation, mindfulness practice and somatic experiencing. I have gotten so much from working with Francesca and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to work through trauma, ordinary life challenges or just to improve the quality of their life.
