Welcome to Franco Psychological Associates


We understand that the decision to seek professional help is often a difficult one that is only entered into with careful consideration. At Franco Psychological Associates every effort is made to provide the highest quality psychological care in a safe, caring environment. 

Many of our clients are referred to us by their physicians, clergy, or their insurance companies. Others learn about our services from a satisfied friend or family member. Regardless of how you have come to us, the goal at Franco Psychological Associates is to provide you with personal and effective consultation for the life problems that have led you to seek our help.

Caring Professionals Who Believe Your Welfare Comes First

We recognize that the issues facing you require prompt attention. Therefore, we make every effort to offer you an appointment with minimal delay. First, we learn about you: your situation and the reason why you contacted us. Our services are personalized to help you better understand and find solutions to your problems. All of our care is provided in a comfortable and confidential setting.

We say goodbye to colleague Lori Hogg, MS who has retired from Franco Psychological Associates. An experienced  clinician, Lori joined with founder Edward Franco, PhD in 1988. She then became a partner in 2004 when FPA incorporated and filled the role of Business Manager until her transition to part-time employment  2 years ago. All of us at FPA appreciate Lori's contributions, and we’re certain that the many clients she treated also benefitted from her capable attention to their needs!
