Amy Di Francia
Psychotherapist - LMFT
As a therapist, I believe that every person has the ability to impact the world in a unique and powerful way. I believe in the inherent worth of all people, and that no one is a burden. I also believe in the healing power of relationships, and that we are most free to grow when we feel seen and accepted by another.
I believe in helping couples find a safer, deeper connection with one another through facilitating honest conversations. I aim to provide a space where those affected by cancer can bring their raw, honest experiences and feel held through the storm of their emotions. I also believe in the freedom and value of bringing faith and spirituality into the process of therapy.
As we work together, I want you to feel empowered. I believe that therapy exists for your benefit, and that you should get a say in what you want your healing to look like, whether that’s practical tools to help fight anxiety or simply someone to sit with you in the dark places and help you not feel so alone.
I earned my bachelor’s in Psychology from Pepperdine University and my master’s in Marital and Family Therapy from Fuller Seminary’s Graduate School of Psychology. I also have additional training in Prepare / Enrich Premarital Therapy, Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapy, and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
