David Francione, APSW – SSM Health

My focus is on the individual’s strengths in order to discover how they have been successful thus far in their life. We build on those strengths in order to work through a variety of life’s difficulties and stressors including anxiety, depression, ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, mood disorders, obsessive compulsive disorders, and/or any other concerns through a trauma-informed approach utilizing a combination of CBT, DBT, Narrative, and EMDR approaches.
