You Are An Individual

You're unique, and it's my job to tailor treatment to your individual needs. I will give you tools and strategies. I will help you craft a plan of action to take control of your life through positive changes -- changes that will last. 

I work with young adults through the elderly. 

I'm a licensed clinical psychologist and trained divorce mediator; by experience, I am a life coach. 

My specialties include: relationship issues; divorce, and other difficult life transitions; depression and anxiety; trauma history, especially in women; low self-esteem, and lack of assertiveness; compassion fatigue and stress; grief and loss, including death of pets.

About Doctor Frank

I’m known for my compassionate, yet no-nonsense style and plain talk that avoids jargon and waffling. I personally return your telephone calls and schedule your appointments.

I’m licensed to practice as a clinical psychologist in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and New York. I’ve completed rigorous training in divorce mediation, and I’m a member of the Rhode Island Mediators Association. By experience, I am a skillful life coach.

Earlier in my clinical career, I was admissions director at the Pederson-Krag mental health center in Huntington, N.Y. Later, I was a consulting staff psychologist at Woonsocket’s Landmark Medical Center, and at its affiliate, Rehabilitation Hospital of Rhode Island, I led psychotherapy groups for patients coping with return-to-work issues and fibromyalgia.

Before becoming Dr. Ann Frank, psychologist, I was an award-winning reporter and columnist for the Fort Lauderdale News and Sun-Sentinel in Florida. In recent years, I wrote a weekly self-help column, “Frankly Speaking,” for the Valley Breeze newspapers in Northern Rhode Island.

After growing up in Cranston and Pawtucket and graduating from Providence College, I earned a master’s degree in journalism at the University of Missouri, and a doctorate in psychology at Nova University in Florida.

My professional affiliations include: American Psychological Association, Rhode Island Psychological Association, International Association of Trauma Professionals, and the Rhode Island Mediators Association.
