plot question

Consider the following graph of the function -ln(|x|).

Plot[-Log[Abs[x]], {x, -2, 2}, PlotRange -> {Automatic, {-1, 3.5}},
Axes -> False, Frame -> True, PlotPoints -> 100, FrameLabel -> {"x",

How is it possible to make the y-axis point downwards (I need this
because in half-space problems within the solid mechanics the possitive
vertical axis is pointed into the half-space)?

Thanks in advance.
