Not currently accepting patients

Hi there, I'm Patsy!

As a licensed therapist with over 20 years of experience in the mental health field, I am dedicated to providing warm, compassionate care to individuals struggling with a variety of concerns, including depression, anxiety, grief, and other disorders.

My approach

My approach to therapy draws on a range of practical, evidence-based techniques, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), narrative therapy, guided imagery, Ericksonian methods, and solution-focused interventions. I tailor my therapeutic style to meet the unique needs of each individual.

My focus

I work with a diverse clientele, including individuals and couples, and specialize in supporting the mental health needs of the geriatric population. My aim is to create a safe, non-judgmental space where clients can explore their challenges and work toward personal growth and well-being.

My communication style

As a therapist, I prioritize open, honest communication and strive to build a strong therapeutic alliance based on trust and understanding. I actively listen to my clients' concerns, offer empathetic support, and collaborate with them to develop personalized treatment plans that align with their goals.

My journey to mental healthcare

I earned my Master of Social Work degree driven by a deep passion for helping others navigate life's challenges. With extensive experience in various clinical settings, I have honed my skills in providing effective, compassionate mental health care to diverse populations.

My goals for you

My ultimate goal is to empower you with the tools, insights, and resilience needed to overcome obstacles, enhance your quality of life, and achieve a greater sense of emotional well-being. Together, we will work to identify your strengths, develop coping strategies, and foster personal growth.

My first session with you

During our first session, we will focus on building rapport, discussing your reasons for seeking therapy, and identifying your primary goals. I will take the time to understand your unique story, concerns, and expectations, ensuring that our therapeutic journey is tailored to your specific needs.
