Francesca Legaspi, MA Clinical Counseling, AMFT

Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist #145014


Welcome! My name is Francesca Legaspi (she/her), an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist. Within my clinical work, I am passionate about cultivating a safe and empowering environment for all clients. With over 3 years of experience working with children and teens with various learning challenges as well as over a year of therapeutic experience working with clients from both a school-based and community-based setting, I have learned how important it is to consider a client’s individual experience when providing therapeutic care. I believe that focusing on your mental health doesn’t have to be scary or challenging and that it is always okay to ask for help. Life is a journey to experience as the best version of ourselves and sometimes we may not always have the correct tools for certain challenges in which I say, "It is okay to not be okay." As I welcome you into this safe space, we will work together to find the right tools for your journey to tackle any barriers or challenges that you may face along the way.

Within my skill set, I focus on approaching client care from a Person-Centered approach while also drawing upon interventions from various modalities such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Narrative therapy, and Trauma-informed.


Cultural Stigmas: As a Filipino-American, targeting cultural barriers surrounding the
topic of mental health is an important part of my work as a therapist. Staying culturally
informed and up to date with the ever-growing field of psychology allows me to tailor my skills to best fit the client’s needs. During our work together I will help you examine and understand how cultural influences may be impacting your mental health.

Mental Wellness for Teens and Young Adults: Is school draining you? Are you unsure
if you are headed in the right direction with your life? Or maybe you just need someone
to talk to about current life struggles (I.e. relationships, family, school, jobs, friends,
etc.)? Either way, those are all valid reasons to feel the way you are feeling. Being a
teenager/young adult is such a tricky stage to navigate as a lot of those life stressors begin to surface. If this sounds like you, let’s talk about it!
