About Me

I’d like to acknowledge your courage for seeking support during this challenging time in your life. You’ve made a decision that is scary yet exciting because you have come to realize that handling your stressors on your own is too overwhelming.

With over 20 years of experience as a therapist, wellness coach, and spiritual counselor, I help individuals and couples, like you, overcome stressful situations and thoughts so you can become more resilient to stressors throughout your life.

Fact is you’ll always encounter stress yet you can learn to manage how you react to it through cognitive and spiritual practices, rather than allow your run away thoughts to take over.

My purpose is to support you and your partner with compassion and without judgement as you share whatever you’re struggling with in a sacred space.

Within our sessions I will help you dive deeper into the areas you’ve been avoiding so we can face them together. I will also share tools and techniques that’ll help you achieve the life you truly desire.

My intention within our work together is that we work on the goals you’ve set in our first session which would guide our work together and create small bite sized action steps to avoid overwhelm. This way you will experience more confidence with the life you are able to create.

If you’re ready to transform your stress into wellness and do the work of stepping into awareness with a supportive guide, then I am excited to be part of your healing journey within your relationship.

Your time is now for you to become clear and focused so you can release your fears and anxiety as you embrace inner peace so you can truly create the life you deserve.

After cycling through a few mismatched therapists on this site, I'm very happy to have found Paty.

Paty is remarkably easy to talk to and confide in. She clearly explained her methodology to therapy in the first session, and she has since shown that she is much more than an empathetic listener.

In our sessions, Paty helps to identify areas/situations where I feel stuck. She challenges your own thinking and comes through with multiple suggestions to alleviate stressors in life.
