I am well versed in a number of treatment modalites including but limited to: Cognitive Behavioral , Person Centered, Psycotherapy and other therapuetic approaches. I most often find an Integrated Couple Therapy Approach which focuses upon the fact that to have a successful marriage/ relationship couples need to develop the ability to accept the unchangeable and change what can be changed.

Written by M.A. on Dec 12, 2020 after therapy with Thomas for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, and coping with life changes

Thomas Patitucci is extremely patient and understanding. He offers different perspectives and insight, and has a lot of experience with many different issues. You can tell he genuinely cares about the people he helps and works with and I personally feel that he will always give me advice that is best for me as a person. I highly recommend him for anything you might be going through. He helps you work on your issues in such a casual way, that you don’t even realize you’ve worked it out until you really take a look at where you started and where you are now.

Take the time to build a great therapist/patient relationship, and takes the time to get to better understand you. I really personally enjoy him and have been significantly improving thanks to his guidance.
