I am Dr. Jennifer Franklin, a licensed psychologist dually licensed in North Carolina and California offering the following services:

  • Therapy
  • Consultation
  • Mindfulness Training


Therapy is for you if you’re interested in working with me in an in-depth, ongoing way on a weekly or biweekly basis. I offer therapy for:

  • Adult Individuals with Functional Medical Problems/DGBIs
  • Couples When One or Both Individuals Have Functional Medical Problems/DGBIs
  • Adult Individuals and Couples Seeking Help For Other Reasons, not Functional Medical Problems or DGBIs. To learn about my other areas of clinical interest, please visit Open Door Therapy.

Note: While it is not part of my practice to provide therapy to children, I strongly encourage parents to set up consultations with me, which might mean one or a few sessions. I have a great deal of information to share and will provide individualized feedback to you as well as appropriate referrals.

Consultations are hour-long appointments intended to provide you with information, a treatment plan, recommendations, referrals, and/or resources to support and guide you in healing your body. I offer consultation for: 

  • Adult Individuals with Functional Medical Problems/DGBIs. 
  • Couples When One or Both Individuals Have Functional Medical Problems/DGBIs
  • Families with Children with DGBIs
  • Health Professionals who work with clients with Functional Medical Problems/DGBIs
Mindfulness Training
I teach mindfulness meditation to beginners and work with practiced meditators interested in taking their mindfulness practice “off the cushion”. I’m focused on helping people to not just learn to meditate but also cultivate a consistent mindfulness meditation practice, address difficulty surfacing during meditation, and most importantly bring their mindfulness meditation practice from their cushion right into their everyday lives. For more information on Mindfulness, visit Open Door Therapy.

I teach mindfulness to adults as:

  • Individuals
  • Couples
  • Groups

If any of the above services interest you, and you’re thinking about setting up a first appointment or have questions, please contact me.
