Dr. Francesca M Ferrentelli

Counselor , PhD , LPC , BCC

I have worked with eating disorder clients since 1991, and started my private practice in 1993. It became my life's passion to help individuals recover from disordered eating, body image dissatisfaction, and other addictions. I began working with surgical weight loss patients in 1998. Surgery changes the body, but individuals must learn what causes them to overeat, and develop better ways to cope. For over 12 years I led preoperative and postoperative support groups for St. Alexius and Des Peres hospitals. My experience helps me to fully understand all clients with disordered eating, and help them develop newer, healthier patterns.
Some individuals simply want to make a life-style change or change something in their lives. What they need, however, is assistance determining what they desire, setting goals, developing a plan to achieve those goals, and confronting any barriers to that success. Life coaching can be highly beneficial for these individuals.
Before I became a counselor, I spent 10 years in sales and marketing, which taught me about setting and achieving goals. My psychological training prepared me to help clients examine barriers to their success. My combined training gives me an advantage in helping individuals make the life transitions they desire.
