She/Her/HersLicensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW
Francie Hallahan is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Jacksonville Beach, Florida. She is also licensed and practicing via telehealth in Illinois and sees people throughout Florida. She works with individuals and families. Many of Francie’s clients come in because of life transitions that cause feelings of worry, sadness, exhaustion, and hopelessness. Francie is particularly passionate about serving young adults, adolescents, and women. She also has advanced training in the area of substance use disorder and mindfulness.
Francie uses an eclectic approach with each client. The model and style depends on the client’s specific needs and goals. Some of the approaches include cognitive behavioral therapy, strengths based approach, mindfulness and yoga, and the Community Reinforcement Approach. In sessions we will examine thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and identify how they're impacting your life. That information is taken into account, and together we will find ways to build on current strengths and develop new, healthier ways to cope with the problems. This approach supports clients to have insight into their lives, which in turn, helps to be able to make choices that align with their goals, feel more relaxed, and improve relationships.
Francie's style is open hearted, accepting, insightful, and positive. When clients first start therapy the focus is on building a strong relationship and creating a comfortable environment where you feel safe and heard.
Francie received her MSW from University of Illinois Chicago in 2006, and prior to that her BSW in 2000. Since graduating with her BSW she has had the opportunity to work at community agencies, schools, and medical offices. Outside of private practice, she enjoys spending time with her family, going to the beach, hiking, and yoga.
