I believe everyone has a unique story and it is in 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, and work extensively with adolescents, teens and young adults.
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. With teens I have worked with self harm (non-suicidal), divorce of parents, adjustment disorder, depression, anxiety, handling expectations in a healthy way, understanding boundaries, among other things. I utilize therapy modalities and treatment approaches including client-focused, experiential, mindfulness and cognitive behavioral therapies.
I am committed to my client and the therapeutic process of helping them achieve their goals and gain satisfaction and joy in all aspects of their lives.

She has helped me through difficult times that would have been impossible without her help. She cares for me and wants what is best for me, and that is evident in our conversations and interactions. I have changed for the better as a person due to my time in therapy with her.

Patty is very understanding. She is able to listen and give advice or put the situation into new perspectives for you to learn new ways of thinking or patterns you may be repeating.

Pati is an exceptional listener and makes you feel your emotions are valid. She helps you see that your mental health is just as important as physical health. She sees who you are and lets you be yourself. I've learned so much from Pati and I hope she knows how much she is appreciated!!
