About Me

I believe everyone has a unique story and it is sharing these stories that I can offer empathy and hope to my clients. I received my Masters of Arts in Marriage, Couple and Family Counseling and my certification as a Play Therapist.

My experience includes working with all ages and stages of divorce, co-parenting and step parenting relationships, grief and loss, anxiety, stress and depression, trauma, domestic violence and self harming behaviors. My work also includes assisting with behavioral, adjustment and attachment issues.

In just one video session, Pati was able to help me get to the root of how my controlling ex was able to manipulate my emotions. Since meeting with her I've been able to really dig deep and feel much more stable. I've also been able to process a lot of things alone using her guidance and affirmations. So thankful!

Pati is very receptive and easy to talk to. She is accessible and responsive. I am really enjoying my time with her. I appreciate that she checks in on me throughout the week.

She’s very understanding and patient, I am one who struggles to open up and she has helped me feel accepted and not judged to open up and that to me means the world, I highly recommended her.

I was matched with Pati after a few short survey questions about what kind of counselor I needed, and I couldn’t be happier! She always responds in a timely manner and I can tell that she puts a lot of thought and detail into her questions and responses to me. I love that we can email back and forth because I am a busy single mom. She has helped me a great deal with my stress and anxiety and she uses real life scenarios to help me understand situations better. She is also local to me so if I wanted to set up an appointment I could do so. I feel important and cared for with her responses. Thanks Pati/BetterHelp!

Patricia and I exchanged several messages and a live chat. She has been great. BetterHelp is great because of its availability. I wish I found it sooner when my wife and I started having problems.

Written by J.U. on Jan 16, 2018 after counseling with Patricia for 2 weeks on issues concerning parenting

Patricia has helped me see how emotionally connected my memories are; it's helped me get through a layer of fog so I can better understand my current state better!

Written by K.B. on Jan 13, 2018 after counseling with Patricia for 2 weeks on issues concerning addictions, relationship, parenting, and bipolar

Working with Patricia has been a really great experience. I have done traditional counseling before, but had a really hard time getting sessions scheduled with a busy professional life and home responsibilities. I was nervous about BetterHelp because the sessions are not in person; but it has far exceeded my expectations and has even been more comfortable than meeting with someone in person.

Written by K.A. on Dec 19, 2017 after counseling with Patricia for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, sleeping, and self esteem

After just a few sessions Patricia has been absolutely wonderful. She offers advice when I ask for it but she truly listens and seems to care about my wellbeing. She understands my situations and makes me feel like it’s okay to have the emotions that I do, then proceeds to try to help me understand those emotions and work through them. Wonderful experience so far.

I was connected with Patricia a few weeks ago, and she has been so open to listening with no judgement. I have been able to get some things off my soul and heart, and try to work through it. I appreciate her.

Patti has been a great source of comfort in an extremely difficult time in my life. I felt comfortable with her almost immediately. I am nearing the end of my second month with her and can highly recommend her!

My time with Pati has been more valuable to me than I'd ever imagined it might be. It's great to have someone help you to look at your life from a different perspective, and to help you approach areas of concern from another direction. I hope to see/talk with her again!!
Thanks Pati!!

She's very personable, always there and just wants to understand you and help YOU understand you, or help you begin to do so. Best counselor I have had.
