Kathy Franz LPC, CADCI
Bachelor of Science from Oregon State University with a concentration in early childhood education. Maters of Arts in Counseling Psychology from Lewis & Clark College with concentration in Marriage and Family therapy. I have practiced in the Portland Metro area in several non-profit community mental health agencies. Experience includes dual diagnosis residential care for adolescents and support for their families, pediatric eating disorders; inpatient through outpatient care, and culturally specific care for Severe and Persistent Mental Illness for the Native American population.
I work with individuals, couples, families and groups.
I believe we are all working to live the healthiest lives we can for ourselves, our families and our community. At times it can be difficult to find balance or we can become stuck in situations that we can't seem to find our way out of. I work with you to identify what support or changes you want to experience in your life to help return to a healthy lifestyle. I use your language to explore the situations and support skill building. All treatment goals are identified with you in session.
I enjoy time with my family, reading, gardening, hiking and cooking.
