Francesca Richardson, MSW, LCSW-C

I provide a warm, supportive, flexible, and non-judgemental environment so that you can heal, explore yourself and your relationships, and reflect and make decisions with freedom and confidence. Through psychotherapy, we can help make sense of what is feeling wrong inside you, relieve your anxiety and depression, heal wounds, sadness and anger from relationships, grieve losses, and help you regain your ability for closeness and intimacy. I am a licensed and board certified clinical social worker, as well as an educator and consultant for social work, psychoanalytic, transpersonal and hypnotherapy students.

I work with many couples who have misunderstood each other, and who have not been able to communicate their expectations and hopes. Together we can repair your relationship, heal past hurts and help you to go forward feeling more trusting & able to be intimate.

My training includes psychodynamic and cognitive therapy and psychoanalysis, couple therapy, EMDR (Eye-Movement-Desensitization and Re-processing), hypnosis, breathwork and training in transpersonal therapy and mind-body integration methods.

Hypnosis can be helpful for learning relaxation techniques, for healing of trauma, for alleviating medical symptoms and pain & for getting to the source of a problem or symptom. Hypnosis can be particularly helpful in helping you to conceive your healthy baby.

Francesca Richardson

I could have called one of dozens of therapists and stumbled across many who would have been less than perfect matches with what I needed. But that didn’t happen. When therapy became a necessary component of my recovery, a random search for care givers in the Annapolis area resulted in over one hundred hits. I scanned the list trying to glean any iota of insight about whom to all. I found Francesca Richardson’s name on the list and recognized her office’s address as a place I had driven past before. Because of that, and only that, I called her number.

Twenty-three months later I am happy and believe in myself and have an inner peace and confidence that hadn’t been there before. She was warm and gentle and kind and this combination allowed me to open up and explore the quagmire that filled the space between my ears. She guided me through the conflicts and misconceptions I created and showed me how to resolve them by allowing them to exist without allowing them to define me or govern what I said or did.

Throughout the journey she led me on, I grew to like, and then love, myself and begin to experience the oneness that binds and connects us all – and that binds and connects us to everything in the universe. I now feel as if a rosebud, slowly and surely unfolding, one petal at a time, to become whole, joyous, and free.

I recommend Francesca to anyone who struggles with who they are and has self-esteem and self-worth issues and all of us who at one time or another lose contact with humanity and nature and life itself.

She turned my inner potential into inner power and strength that now flow and support a new and improved me.

I wish Francesca Richardson was the first therapist I had gone to years ago. She helped me more in a year and a half than any other counselor I have ever seen over the years.
