Frances Waple Callahan, LCSW-C (MD), LICSW (DC)

Associate Director of Consultation Services

Frances (she/her) has worked as a mental health clinician and clinical leader at Johns Hopkins University since 2010. Currently, Frances serves as Associate Director of Consultation Services, overseeing the Consultation Services team of mental health clinicians in Baltimore and DC and providing consultation to campus partners who are concerned about students’ well-being.

Before she led clinical teams, Frances provided counseling to Johns Hopkins faculty, staff, and students, and prior to her clinical social work career, taught yoga, literature, and writing. Frances believes that to help effectively, it’s essential to understand people’s strengths and challenges in the context of their environment. She is grateful that her work helping Johns Hopkins students, and helping faculty and staff support students, allows her to positively impact students and the context that’s affecting their well-being.
