Frances Perkins, LPC, MHSP

I chose this career to create a place of hope where clients can experience emotions honestly, without judgement, and grow from those experiences. I seek to help others explore their stories and emotions, engage their hearts, and develop a deeper sense of awareness and satisfaction.

I believe in giving back to the profession some of what it has given to me. I have learned so many lessons from those who mentored me and seek to do the same for others.

I hope new clinicians see the significance of their hard work. This work is so special, and I hope they will see just what an impact helping one person can make.

WORDS I LIVE BY:
“Life as a therapist is a life of service in which we daily transcend our personal wishes and turn our gaze toward the needs and growth of the other. We take pleasure not only in the growth of our patient but also in the ripple effect—the salutary influence our patients have upon those whom they touch in life.” - Irvin D. Yalom, The Gift of Therapy
