Vicki Franzen, LLC
DBA Bridge to Hope and Healing

My Philosophy

I am dedicated to the belief that every person has an emotional, intellectual, physical, social, and a spiritual life that needs to be supported and nurtured.

In a setting that is caring, supportive, and ethical, I work to empower individuals, couples, and families to manage their own well-being. When requested, Christian counseling is a part of the therapeutic process. Counseling is not about changing who you are as a person; it is about better understanding who you are as a person. Understanding how we love and how we handle conflict are two key dimensions to better understanding ourselves.

I am committed to treating my clients with dignity, gentleness, and respect. My goal is to bridge hope and healing by being mindful of a person’s value and to offer insight and understanding into the complexities of everyday life and relationships.
