About Me

I am a licensed Clinical Social Worker with more than twenty years of experience in counting adult clients. My experience has led me to value the concepts of person-centered therapy and unconditional acceptance of the person and the circumstances. I am proficient in several contrasting therapy modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Trauma Therapy, and Self as Locus of Control. The core principals of the therapeutic relationship are very important to me and I believe in self determination to establish and accomplish goals that are meaningful to individuals.

Kind man , kind words. Great listener but can be a little slow to speak or get to the point. There is much wisdom in his words if only you can listen. The conversation is half the battle , meditating upon the conversation and implementing it is the other half. That is where most people fail in therapy , they claim to want change but think talking is the change.. that is not so. Talk therapy is only as effective if you allow it , talk therapy with Patrick is an amazing tool if utilized properly. Come prepared with notes and you will rapidly improve the outcome of your sessions.

Patrick is great at listening, does not judge or shame you, I've only talked with him twice and I already feel like I am making progress. Look forward to our next session!

We have only had a few sessions so it is too early to say really but so far initial impression are good.

Patrick is a great listener. He is wonderful at taking what has been said and reframing it into what is important about it. Some of us have the problem of not being able to focus on a problem because everything seems to come in at once and Patrick is phenomenal at quieting the storm and helping to refocus your mind.

An amazing listener !

Written by M.A. on Mar 23, 2022 after therapy with Patrick for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, and parenting issues

He is very compassionate with a great insight into what a person is truly saying which allows the person being helped to really be able to understand where their core problems may stem from. This helps me to know that he is going to help me to get better.
Thank you !!

I was initially hesitant to the idea of opening up to a therapist. However, I'm very grateful that I made the choice to do so. Patrick has offered me an outlet that I've never had before. Furthermore, he's done so in a manner to where I don't feel like I'm being judged. 10/10 recommend!

He actually listens and remembers. That means allot.

Written by P.E. on Feb 24, 2022 after therapy with Patrick for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Patrick is amazing with me. He has a knack of putting you at ease and that lends itself to open, two way communication. His knowledge base is vast and he can easily relate complex subjects to everyday life and makes it easy to understand. He’s good about asking the hard questions and making sure you answer them. I’m very glad he ended up with me.

Patrick does a great job listening, but he also provides helpful feedback. I can message him when I am having a bad day and he responds with helpful comments in a timely manner.

Written by A.J. on Feb 23, 2022 after therapy with Patrick for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, trauma and abuse, grief, and intimacy-related issues

Patrick is great at making me feel comfortable to talk about difficult things and asking me prompting questions during our sessions.

I really enjoy Patrick! He is easy to talk to and I don’t feel like I am being quizzed. My feelings are validated and I always feel like I leave the session with a plan.
