    Francesca Riddell, LMFT

    Hi! I’m Francesca. I have over 20 years experience providing therapy to children, adolescents, and their families. I’ve been licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist since 2011. I am PEERS certified and have an additional certification in the Autism Spectrum Disorder Clinical Specialist Intensive Training (ASDCS). My early clinical experience was working in a non-public school for children with developmental disabilities including ADHD, and Autism. I also provided individual and family therapy, as well as led anger management groups for teens in a private practice.  I have additional experience working for a non-profit organization in community and school based settings. Recently, I spent over 9 years working for a large health care organization as a clinician and developmental case manager, providing individual and family therapy to children and adolescents and developmental case management services for individuals with Autism and their families. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in my approach to address symptoms of depression, anxiety, and social/emotional difficulties. I work together with my clients and their parents to teach effective coping skills to manage their symptoms. I look forward to meeting you!

    I see clients in person and virtually. My office address is: 16855 Via Del Campo Ct. #206 San Diego, CA 92127
