Frank is a natural connector who has lived many professional lives, all of which have lef him to pursue a career in therapy. Growing up gay in the 90s, right on the heels of the AIDS epidemic, was an experience that inspired his perseverance while he developed an understanding of his identity. Frank has always been passionate about communicating with others, particularly in a supportive capacity and decided to pursue a career in social work as he was attracted by the social-justice and person-centered approach of the work.
This framework supports Frank in prioritizing a collaborative partnership where he and his clients learn and explore deeper meaning together.
