Francesca C Baslow is a Licensed Psychotherapist located in New York, and works to help her clients become more self aware to move forward and thrive, often by healing their historical wounds that keep them stuck by recreating the same unfulfilling patterns. She works with individuals, but also specializes in couples counseling. Here she seeks to deepen and ease their relationships through building bridges to more connection, creating healthy boundaries and clear communication, toward conflict resolution and fulfillment. Couples may include not only partners, but family members, friends and co-workers.
When clients enter the compassionate and safe space she creates, they often find it easy to connect to her, open up and feel supported. She is a warm, authentic therapist who often brings humor and her engaging personality into sessions. Her practice is inclusive of all clients, no matter the identity, background, or circumstances. Francesca’s goal is to help clients relax their minds, bodies and hearts in the face of change, difficulty, or distress, and give them a space to explore the self they truly are.
Francesca studied at the Gestalt Center for Psychotherapy and Training in New York City, for a 3-year intensive post graduate education upon opening her private practice 16 years ago. Francesca’s approach to working with clients is grounded in Gestalt therapy, a humanistic and compassionate psychotherapy model that is non-pathological, and evidence based. With decades of experience in mental health at all levels of care, she has found that Gestalt techniques have the greatest healing potential - to work through feelings and situations instead of just talking about them. As well, she uses techniques of CBT, mindfulness, family systems, neuroscience and somatic theory, for a holistic framework of healing.
