Perri Franskoviak PhD
Trained as a psychologist, Perri Franskoviak has been working in community settings for over 25 years, developing and delivering low-threshold services to individuals with mental illness, homelessness, and substance abuse. Her areas of interest include identifying and working with countertransference, supervision as a tool for professional and personal growth, and the integration of harm reduction principles and relational psychotherapy. She is also interested in training and supporting graduate students as they learn to work with complex individuals. She has a small private practice in which she sees individuals with depression, anxiety, PTSD, co-occurring disorders, relationship struggles, and gender and sexuality concerns, and has undertaken additional training in somatic-oriented treatment of trauma in order to better meet the needs of her clients, consultees and students. She especially enjoys developing a relationship with clients and students and seeing change unfold over time, which is something she brings to her teaching and program administration at Holy Names University.
