My name is Patricia Searels and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. I have worked in a variety of settings such as universities, private practice, and Christian non profit centers for over 20 years. I have worked closely with college students, athletes and young professionals, as well as adults of all ages suffering from adjustment disorders ( moving, new parents, job changes, divorce) depression, anxiety, trauma, and those who are experiencing loss or relationship issues.
My counseling style is is to create a genuine relationship that is caring, direct, and cooperative. I believe that when people are treated with respect and in a safe, healthy and honest relationship, growth can occur. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution focused, and motivational interviewing counseling. The therapeutic process looks different for each individual, and my belief is in finding a unique, individualized and wholistic approach for each client. I always meet the client where they are spiritually and emotionally and their personal goals will drive our work together.
My hours are pretty flexible and I prefer to have some voice or face to face time in addition to text. I believe in providing the tools you need to live a happier more fulfilling life. By reaching out for support and help you have already taken the first step towards improving your life and achieving your goals.
I look forward to working with you!

Best therapist! Have recommended her to at least 5 friends and everyone loves her too.
She is absolutely amazing and I would recommend her to everyone! In just a few sessions she helped me make some amazing breakthroughs. She is caring and compassionate yet astute and insightful.
Patricia offers a perfect balance of hearing and understanding your personhood, issues, and feelings while also being challenging and encouraging. I just started working with her but can already see changes in my thinking and attitude about daily life. I look forward to continuing the journey with her and would highly recommend her!
