Elizaveta (Liza) Patchen

(LCSW)

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Florida experienced in providing guidance, mental health, and substance abuse counseling for my clients. Since 2014, I have worked with individuals struggling with various problems with addictions, depression, anxiety, traumatic events, loss of purpose, and relationship issues.

I received my Bachelor’s in Culture and Arts in 2009 and my Master’s Degree in Social Work in 2014. I gained my experience working with elderly individuals in inpatient settings, providing therapy services to families and individuals in an outpatient setting, as well as working with clients, struggling with addictions in an inpatient setting. In addition, I have worked with patients severely mentally ill by providing a safe place to share their world and seek solutions to their challenging life circumstances. I am trained in evidence based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, as well as Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy with MBSR techniques. I am fluent in English and Russian languages.

Our everyday lives are filled with events that we have no control over. Some go about their lives embracing this chaos, but for others this task may seem challenging and unattainable. I believe that with proper guidance one can accept life as spontaneous chain of events and feel comfortable throughout the process of change. I do believe that without a sense of purpose life loses its meaning, therefore in my sessions I stress the importance of finding and redefining one's purpose.

I offer a range of therapeutic services, all designed to help you find your way back into a peaceful and satisfying life. Whether you're looking for a change or just feel the need to talk to somebody, I am here for you.

Liza has been there for me when I was most in need. Her empathy, understanding, and experience have helped me immensely. I would highly recommend her. I am grateful for her help.

Liza has been very attentive, and available to help me. She offered me specific steps and followed up with me regularly. I had a very good counseling experience with her.

There are plenty of people who have the right education and necessary credentials, but don’t know how to apply what they have learned... That is not the case here. I feel like I have gotten so much out of this, and it is because Liza was able to understand my needs even better than I could. She is here for me, when I am feeling down and when I am feeling happy. Not only does she give excellent advice, but she is also very easy to talk to. I am really glad I decided to give this a chance and was paired with Liza.

I was skeptical using this app. But I can honestly say Liza put me at ease and was very easy to get everything out and address what seemed to be most important during the first session. Very happy so far.

I love how she's organic & goes with your feelings & doesn't push ahead on anything
Whenever I'm feeling down she's responds quickly. She's made such a difference in my life.
