Patrice has been very helpful in the limited time I’ve been seeing her. I am really looking forward to continuing the process!
I have only had 2 sessions, and so far, I feel like it is a good match and progress will be made.
In just our first session, Patrice was able to identify issues I’ve been struggling to articulate and laid out an achievable, non-abstract roadmap to betterment. Patrice is very compassionate, focused, and insightful. I would feel confident referring her to anyone looking for help and betterment.
Patrice is amazing! This is my first time seeing a therapist and she made the entire process so easy. She is a great listener and very supportive, i felt much better emotionally and mentally after the 1st session and every session after has only made me feel even better. I feel like a new person! Thank you Patrice for everything!
