Patricia is thoughtful in her questions and responses. She is compassionate, kind, intelligent, and exactly what I have been looking for in a therapist. Each session with her feels like a small victory. I am so thankful for Patricia.
I was on the verge of cancelling my subscription with this app. I didn’t have much luck at all with the previous councillors. Patricia has made the world of a difference and I have renewed to continue getting help with her. She offers support and listens intently to what I have to say and the problems I have. Thank you Patricia!

Patricia is amazing because she doesn’t pry and let’s you go at your own pace. She builds the kind of trust that a kindergarten teacher would build with you. It very warm and is great for someone whose not used to councillors.
She is always attentive and understanding when I get side tracked, gently bringing me back to the topic. She also shows genuine intrest in me and my life.
She is the best! I can comfortably share my thoughts and concerns with her and she guides me through the rough times.
Patricia is excellent. She is kind and pays attention to details. She has been very helpful to me in the short amount of time that I have been communicating with her. She has even checked in with me a few times after not hearing from me for a couple of days. That helps me when I get sidetracked to slow down and check in so I can keep up my progress. I am very pleased with our sessions.
I love working with Patricia! She’s an active listener who makes me feel heard and validated. She also helps by being a source of calm and acceptance who helps me by identifying the sources of my stress and anxiety and brainstorming ways to address them. Looking forward to continuing to work with her!

Patricia understands my stuff even better than I do myself. She's always encouraging and has good recommendations. She has a good sense of humor and we both love our furbabies.
Patricia has been very crucial in helping me change my life. While I have not yet undergone a radical transformation, I can see the differences talking with her has made in my life.

Patricia is so sweet and she listens, cares and help a lot! It’s amazing how much she has done to me just in the first sessions. I highly recommend this professional!
Patricia is the best therapist I could ask for.
Not only does she respond in a predictable, dependable manner; she makes it a point to address every single point that I write about in my long messages to her (I write a LOT, and I respect the fact that she doesn't miss out a thing).
She also is very courteous, in that if she is unable to respond as she normally does, she makes sure that I'm aware by informing me. She doesn't leave me hanging.
Also, during the weeks when I don't check in with her, or whenever I go quiet for an extended period, she actively checks up on me.
Patricia is a key part of my support system as I proceed with my healing.
Patricia is a very good listener. She respects me and allows me the space to talk and express myself without judgement.
Meeting Patricia was the best thing. I am only beginning my therapy but already feel that I have a strong support from her. I really want to recommend her for the great person she is.

Patricia immediately had a great understanding of my situation, provided excellent resources and amazing counseling. I highly recommend her to anyone.

I'm so glad I was matched to her. I wouldn't want anyone else. Her patience, kindness, and compassion always amaze me. Patricia has made a bigger difference in my life then she knows.
I had canceled my subscription when I got a message from Patricia. I figured that I had almost a full month left so it couldn't hurt to talk with her.
