Westly M. Francois, MSW, LCSW
Westly M. Francois, a dedicated Licensed Clinical Social Worker, is not just an ordinary therapist. With licensure in both Florida and Georgia, his 13 years in the mental health field have been a journey of passion, learning, and genuine commitment to change. Known for his ability to simplify the complex, Westly creates an atmosphere where clients eagerly anticipate each session. His youthful energy is infectious, making difficult conversations seem like chats with a friend.
But what truly sets Westly apart is his dedication to addressing generational trauma within the African American community. He's not just treating symptoms; he's initiating healing, one heart at a time. And yes, he does this fluently in both English and Haitian Creole, bridging cultures with every word.
Westly's educational background is as impressive as his clinical experience. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Management and a Master of Social Work from Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU). With over a decade in various mental health settings, his expertise spans anxiety, depression, trauma, and more.
His therapy isn't one-size-fits-all. He blends cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, trauma-informed, and eye movement desensitization therapies to meet each client's unique needs. But his work isn't confined to the therapy room. Westly mentors youth and young adults, guiding them toward a brighter future.
Westly believes in therapy that empowers. His approach is a perfect balance of realism and aspiration, designed not just to navigate the present, but to courageously shape the future. Westly is more than his credentials; he's a beacon of hope in a journey toward healing.
