“I view therapy with a systemic lens. From this perspective, I believe that relationships are at the core of our lives; while relationships with others may contribute to symptoms, relationships with others can also greatly improve recovery. Research shows that, particularly in Eating Disorders, family therapy has a long-lasting positive impact. I also believe that our physical and mental health are strongly connected and that changes in one influence changes in the other. Eating Disorders have always been a passion of mine. I am especially interested in working with families to help them regain balance and health, and also to achieve their goals using the strengths that they already possess.” — Brittney France
I love to travel and want to visit as many places as I can. I have two dogs Lola and Dusty and start most mornings by taking them to the park. When not in the office, I try to spend a lot of time outside either exploring San Diego or wherever I may be.
