Patricia Donovan

LCSW

About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, in the state of Texas, with over 15 years of experience providing therapy. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree focusing on psychology and sociology and a Master's Degree in Social Work, both through Indiana University. I offer strength based, solution focused therapy and I am dedicated to helping clients gain insight around their personal challenges by implementing a positive approach. My goal is to provide a safe environment for individuals to explore underlying origins to their problems. I believe understanding leads to to a greater responsibility, which ultimately provides freedom. I offer encouragement for clients to draw on their spiritual beliefs for comfort and support as they work through various issues.

As a wife, mother of six and grandmother of many, I also bring much life experience to my therapy. I have been a part of various denominations over the years and am attracted to non-denominational congregations. As an individual, I have actively participated in my own healing journey by attending both individual and couple's therapy and I encourage our adult children to do the same as needed. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I would be honored to partner with you in your own journey of growth and understanding, which can be very liberating.

Patricia is the therapist I have been searching for, for years. She is gentle, understanding, listens well, makes me feel like I matter and is honest. I appreciate her advice and kindness. I look forward to speaking with her weekly. Patricia has helped me see things in a different perspective and has helped me in my everyday life and marriage. Thank you Patricia!
