I am a Social Worker licensed in New York State with over 25 years experience working as a psychotherapist and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, addiction, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

I love Patricia ❤️ and i recommend everyone to choose her as their therapist shes a very nice caring person and really cares about my feelings and my thoughts and shes easy to talk to
Great work, gives great insight and helps work through difficult times.
Love Patricia and she is very responsive and empathetic. The only critic I have is that she doesn’t call me out on stuff and challenge me. Tell me that im being stupid or something lol. I wont take it to heart. Otherwise very nice
She’s been super helpful even with my scheduling for work. I’m not the best at answering but she’s always reaching out to see how I’m doing. She’s helped me a lot with many struggling issues I have. She’s been a huge support for me
Patricia has been incredibly helpful - she came to my aid when I most needed it and I have looked forward to our sessions where we can work through problems together. I like her solution based approach(techniques, mindset etc) but with deep understanding as well. Always compassionate and considerate, she takes the time to understand things from many different points of view and does not hesitate to gently offer advice. She always creates a calm atmosphere and makes you feel supported which is always important. Couldn’t recommend her enough
Patricia is understanding and helpfull. She is positive and nice. I like and enjoy our sessions.
Patricia has been really helpful and I plan to continue our sessions for another month.
I feel better after every session
Patricia is a great therapist, I highly recommend her
Very respectful, understanding, and knowledgeable!
Patricia's kind, understanding and positive approach to therapy and counselling has been of great value, and provided some much needed motivation throughout some difficult periods. She's been reliable, responsive and always supportive and enthusiastic in our sessions. Patricia helped keep focus on making progress, and most of all, appreciating any progress that was made, no matter how big or small. Invaluable. Highly recommended; especially if good and positive energy in the process is desirable.
She is so helpful, empathetic, and considerate, she even shares the same beliefs spiritually and is able to give me tools using that as well. I am so grateful to have been matched with her.
Wonderful! She is extremely thoughtful and provides a wide variety of techniques.
Patricia makes me feel comfortable and more confident talking about things that are important to me but that I've been struggling with to work on by myself. She's very understanding and caring and knows exactly how to make me feel better and hopeful for the future. I love our calls and the little chats and reminders in between.
It’s comforting to know that I have someone to listen to me without being judged and having someone who is supportive outside of friends. It’s nice that when I don’t message that she checks up on me even though sometimes I forget.
