About me

I am a Social Worker licensed in New York State with over 25 years experience working as a psychotherapist and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including faith counseling, depression, anxiety, addiction, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

I have now been meeting with Patricia for a month and a half and I would definitely recommend her as someone who has the ability to make you feel comfortable and at ease in opening up and helps you see things for what they really are. I didn't know what I was expecting in counseling at the beginning other than I knew I needed help in walking back through some dark times and dealing with thought patterns and behavioral patterns that I needed to understand and deal with.
Just being able to talk with Patricia, who is trained to see and understand the connection between the puzzle pieces while I vocalize piece by piece my past while learning to live in the present has been such a help. Grateful for counseling and grateful for Patricia!

Work with me!
