Professional statement

Dr. Timothy Franklin is a Clinical Psychologist located in Phoenix, AZ. Dr. Franklin specializes in working with teenagers, adults, and older adults who suffer from mood disorders including depression and anxiety. Many of Dr. Franklin’s clients feel overwhelmed with their emotions and react to daily situations with heightened emotional responses such as anger, sadness, and insecurity. Often, this is the result of traumatic experience or grief. Dr. Franklin helps clients move past those difficult emotions and find inner balance.

Dr. Franklin’s approach to therapy blends several evidence-based therapy modalities like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Solutions-Focused Therapy. Dr. Franklin works with each client to develop unique goals for their mental health. These goals guide each subsequent session and conversation. He teaches clients how to identify negative thought patterns like cognitive distortions and develop less harmful ways of thinking or behaving. He believes that each client has inner strengths and may share different perspectives for consideration. With these methods, he helps clients move forward after traumatic events or feel less emotionally fatigued in their daily lives.

Dr. Franklin earned his PsyD from the Arizona School of Professional Psychology. His style is honest and frank yet compassionate and kind. Sessions with Dr. Franklin are non judgemental and exploratory, as he sets an accepting environment for clients of all identities and backgrounds.
