Dona Caine-Francis

As a certified sex therapist, individual and couples counselor, and psychiatric nurse practitioner, I have over 40 years of clinical and therapy experience helping individuals with a variety of emotional and sexual issues. These include grief, anxiety, depression, stress, self-esteem, relationship problems, menopause, and sexual health. 


Early in my career, I worked as a critical care and emergency nurse. After a number of years working in a hospital setting, I decided that a master’s degree in psychiatric nursing was the next frontier and that led to private practice and the opportunity to touch so many lives in my many years of private practice.

If you're dealing with a lack of self-esteem, debilitating stress, anxiety, depression, grief, sexual issues or a number of other emotional problems, then it's time to understand the causes, strategies to address them, and put yourself on a path of growth and healing. 


If your relationship with your spouse, partner, or companion is not what you want it to be, your sexual relations are strained, or your intimacy is a thing of the past, we'll work together to discover ways to bring back the spark and enjoy a healthy and enjoyable sex life. 


If you want to bring in a dynamic, experienced speaker who will capture your audience's attention and keep them on the edge of their seats, then look no further. Choose from a variety of powerful and insightful topics for healthcare professionals and other individuals.
