Welcome, and thank you for your interest.
About Francine Ronis, Licensed Professional Counselor
I have been a therapist in Northern Virginia since 2000, specializing in child and family therapy. For the ten years prior, I was a teacher, preschool director, child advocate and consultant. I have Master’s Degrees in Counseling, and Early Childhood Education, and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. I am licensed by the Commonwealth of Virginia, Board of Counseling.
My unique approach to counseling adults includes relationship work that facilitates healing of old wounds that resurface in adulthood and practical real-life skills to enhance your daily life.
When working with children, I use a model that includes the family to facilitate behavioral and emotional changes and enrich the childhood and family experience.
I specialize in working with individuals and families that want to enrich their relationships, experience more joy, connection, and intimacy; and heal old wounds that block their ability to live fully in the present.
I am a parent coach, helping biological and adoptive parents create the family environment where children and parents can thrive. I coach parents on Mindful Parenting, Positive Discipline, Meditation, and Attachment Parenting. I also offer workshops for teachers and caregivers.
