About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who is passionate about helping people confront challenges and overcome obstacles. I have been working with individuals and families in the community for over 15 years. My broad experience includes working with individuals in public and private schools settings as well of social service organizations, and with age groups ranging from 3 to 65. Among other things, I specialize in trauma informed care, stress and life management issues, sexual abuse/assault, child abuse and family problems.

My counseling approach is client centered and strength based. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Stages of Change as therapeutic interventions that will help you with the issues you struggle with. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Human Services from Springfield College and a Master's Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Argosy University.

I look forward to working with you.

Patrice has been helping me to navigate my inner thoughts and feelings regularly. During the past three months, I have been able to manage my anxiety much better thanks to her counseling. I also appreciate her trying various helpful methods and because of that my deeper fears and feelings are being dealt with; that's all I want to free myself from factors that drain my energy and live a happier life.

Patrice is awesome. She listens, she provides suggestions, she’s funny, and I really look forward to our sessions. I also appreciate that she’s been giving me exercises to work on throughout the week!

Written by T.A. on Sep 13, 2020 after counseling with Patrice for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, coping with life changes, and coaching

I love the energy Patrice brings to a call. It feels like I'm enjoying time with a friend, with thought provoking conversation and accountability. I never feel like she "knows better than me," which is something I've felt before in therapy. It feels moreso like we are a team working together to find solutions and paths for me to take. I really appreciate it.

Written by C.A. on May 30, 2020 after counseling with Patrice for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, and grief

Patrice has been very helpful to my mental health. I normally overthink and panic about things and do impulsive things as a result but having her to share my thoughts with and talk things out has been so helpful. She understands and give me good advice and asks questions that help me sort out my feelings.

Written by L.A. on Feb 28, 2020 after counseling with Patrice for 2 weeks on issues concerning family conflicts

Patrice is very supportive and her demeanor makes talking about difficult things easier. We’ve given her a big job, including being flexible with technology and she’s willing to do what it takes to get the job done.

Written by A.M. on Feb 22, 2020 after counseling with Patrice for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, and coping with life changes

After my original counselor left Better Help, I was afraid of starting all over with someone new. But wow, Patrice is so calming and understanding right from the start. She checks in with me outside of sessions and really hears what I'm saying when we are in our sessions. I think this is the first time I'm really seeing progress in my recovery. She is so great!

Working with Patrice has been a joy for me. I've begun the long journey during a rough patch getting myself back. And better. She has helped me to be stronger and more able mentally than I was previously, to combat the negative thoughts and emotions and begin to think with gratitude. Big thanks to her for all her work!

Written by C.L. on Jun 27, 2019 after counseling with Patrice for 2 months on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, and parenting issues

Patrice has offered me guidance, insight and clarity when I really needed it.
I felt completely comfortable after just a few sessions to open up to her and I felt she could see what the salient points were amongst all my chaos.
I have recommended this service to a colleague but they are not ready yet.
With the pressures and pace of life today it is so beneficial to be able to access online support so readily, thank you all.
