Frances Touhey, MSW, LCSW
Licensed Clinical Social Worker

My practice includes children, adolescents, and adults.  I approach the therapeutic process with the belief that we all have the potential to heal ourselves.  We can learn to maximize our strengths and minimize our limitations.  As a therapist, it is my role to help people recognize these qualities in themselves, and to provide them with the tools necessary for them to achieve their goals.

I specialize in Motivational Interviewing, a strengths-based therapy that I also combine with other therapeutic processes that best enable the individual to heal.  These approaches include CBT, DBT, Behavior Modification, Art Therapy, and ACT.

I appreciate the opportunity to work with a diverse population.  I provide individual, relationship, family, and group therapy.  I offer groups for parents of children with a diagnosis of ADHD, adults living with ADHD, and adolescent self-esteem.  I have experience treating both thought and mood disorders, and I work extensively with individuals who are healing from abuse and trauma. 
I encourage clients to utilize community resources that they may not have been aware of, and I interned with the South Bend Common Council in order to educate myself about the mental health needs of the community and how best to advocate for improved services.
