Frances Beroset (she/they) holds a Masters Degree in Social Work from UNC-Chapel Hill. Frances believes that beginning therapy and taking the chance to trust someone new is an act of great courage. Clients may find themselves seeking therapy because they've noticed that the strategies that they have learned in the past to protect themselves from pain are causing pain in their current lives and relationships. Frances approaches therapy with a deep respect for her clients' own perspectives, survival strategies, and desires. Frances's hope for their clients is that they leave their work together with a more nuanced self-understanding and an ability to experience a fuller range of emotions, from joy and love to anger and sorrow.
Frances works primarily from a psychodynamic perspective, which means that they work together with their clients to explore the ways emotional experiences of the past affect current life experiences and relationships today; as well as collaborating with their clients to create new possibilities for the future. Clients can expect Frances to join the therapeutic relationship with curiosity, kindness, and at times a new or challenging perspective. Frances also uses Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and other modalities depending on specific client hopes and concerns. Frances particularly enjoys working with queer, trans, and questioning clients and their loved ones, individuals with anxiety, and young adults with difficulties in familial, friendship, romantic or
