Venus Franklin

Therapist for Individuals & Couples

Have you ever had a really cool aunt, cousin, or best-friend that you could get real with? Someone who is not going to judge you, wants the best for you, and can laugh with you when you need it. That’s Venus. She’s awesome.

Venus is located at our ALL IN-West location.

Venus comes to us with both clinical experience and life experience. She lived the corporate life, she has kids, she knows what it takes to change careers, and she is one tough and determined woman.

After we met her, a colleague said “After talking to her I feel so relaxed, like I just took a Xanax”. Not trying to be silly, but that is what it’s like to hang around her. She’s very calming, very centering, and very focused.

Venus has a particular passion with working with diverse clients, and brings that passion to the room. She cares deeply, and her honesty is very apparent to all to meet her.

Venus is also EMDR-trained, making her an excellent resource for clients looking to heal past trauma so that it doesn’t control their future.

She’s also very authentic. But don’t take our word for it. Meet with her yourself and you be the judge.

Venus practices a blend of trauma-informed, culturally-competent, Narrative, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, EMDR, and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy approaches.
