The lotus blossom has long been considered a symbol of transformation. It begins as a tiny plant growing from the murky, sticky mud at the bottom of a pond. As it grows and continues to grow toward the light, it develops into a beautiful, exotic flower. At night it closes and sinks back into the water; at dawn it rises and reopens.
The process of psychotherapy can be very similar to the lotus blosso. One is brought into therapy by issues that can feel sticky and messy. As you gain insight into your problems, nrwer, more illuminated aspects of yourself can emerge
She specializes in the following areas
Making the decision to have bariatric surgery in an important life decision; therefore, it is important that you are evaluated by someon who understands eating disorders, compulsive eating, the surgical progess and the challenges one might face afterwards
Even with good post-surgical support, you may still need individual therapy after surgery. Bariatric surgery changes your body, not your mind or your emotions. Life challenges might still compel you to eat in old patterns. Francesca understands the struggles and can help you on the road to recovery.
