I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Connecticut and I've been working with individuals and families in the mental health field for over five years. I've counseled college students, young adults, the homeless, working professionals and those suffering from persistent mental illnesses. I've worked in and around schools, clinics, shelters and inpatient settings. I use a person centered approach of warmth, non-judgement, empathic listening, positive self regard and belief in the client's strengths. Counseling is unique for each person so I always use a customized approach to treatment, often drawing upon cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and creative arts therapies.
There is nothing that makes me happier than helping people create the life they want and deserve. My philosophy is rooted in the belief that we can gain greater self-awareness, find solutions to our problems, reach our goals, and ultimately become the author of our own life through self-direction, hard work and being open to change.
- Stress, Anxiety

I also have experience in Addictions, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related, Parenting, Anger, Bipolar, Depression

I found I was able to build trust with Patrick quickly. He seemed to understand my emotions immediately and his responses gave me reassurance. I felt he was genuine, warm and professional.
Patrick has been the best counselor I have had. He has understood my issues and responded in a sympathetic and positive manner. He has also been very prompt in his replies. The exercises he made me go through have been very helpful. I was lucky to find such an understanding counselor!
Dr. Davin is top-notch. He is extremely caring toward his patients (including me), giving them deep, and life changing advice. When you are in a time-sensitive shananagan-fest you can count on this guy to scramble through his busy day events and appointments to work with you, and make you feel at ease. 10/10
This is a great service!
I like talking to Patrick. He understood what I was going through and has offered in ways in which to counter these situations. Patrick messages back in a timely manner and through his words I found the comfort and support to face my challenges.
In a very short amount of time, Patrick and BetterHelp have done wonders for managing my stress and anxiety. He responds to my messages promptly and is always kind and helpful in his responses. I don't ever feel judged by him which is important. I would strongly recommend this for someone with a busy schedule or who needs to speak to someone frequently.
So far, Patrick is really empathetic, a great listener, and really responsive. He seems to understand what I'm trying to express. I'm looking forward to working with him more to get to the root of some of my anxiety and developing practical solutions.
Patrick is really helpful and approachable
Patrick was very helpful throughout the process. He answered my messages quickly and always gave thoughtful and supportive responses, giving me the tools I needed to get better.
Patrick is patient, caring, understanding, and above all, non-judgmental with the biggest heart. I've found much comfort in just his listening ear alone, and benefited from all his reassuring response and helpful materials that he provided here and there for me to build my confidence back to where it should be again. I am extremely grateful to have been matched with Patrick. I believe I would otherwise not be able to get through my challenges if I did not know there is someone I can turn to when I needed valuable advice. Thank you so much, Patrick.
