Hello, my name is Francine Costanza and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor here at Stenzel Clinical Services. I have been working in private practice for 8 years.
My counseling style is eclectic, drawing from strengths-based therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy. Insight into family of origin patterns is also an important therapeutic element that I use. I enjoy working with clients of all ages whether it is a one-on-one, couples or family environment. I have experience using the Gottman method with couples as well as emotion focused therapy. My desire is to see clients heal from past hurts, make desired change and grow to their full potential. I also have experience working with children who are struggling socially, with sensory issues or ADHD. I use art and play therapy as well as conversation to help them work through their thoughts and feelings, gain insight and develop action tools for living.
In addition, I can provide Christian counseling for people who would like to incorporate their faith into the therapeutic process.
