Very understanding, very patient, and very supportive. She responds in a timely manner, and is willing to pump the breaks if she realizes you may not be quite ready to dive into something in particular. Is good at keeping you focused on the issue at hand.

Over the last 3 months, Patricia has validated my feelings and been a steady ear each week as I navigated very intense emotions. During our time working together, Patricia has exposed me to the tools I need to gain insight on myself and assist in healthy communication with others. I have learned so much over the last few months, and am excited to continue the journey.
