Patrice is awesome. She listens, she provides suggestions, she’s funny, and I really look forward to our sessions. I also appreciate that she’s been giving me exercises to work on throughout the week!

I love the energy Patrice brings to a call. It feels like I'm enjoying time with a friend, with thought provoking conversation and accountability. I never feel like she "knows better than me," which is something I've felt before in therapy. It feels moreso like we are a team working together to find solutions and paths for me to take. I really appreciate it.

I'm surprised to say that I've enjoyed my time speaking to Patrice. She's very patient and understanding, she takes time to listen to my concerns, and provides me some help and support when needed. I can't wait to talk to her again!

Written by C.A. on May 30, 2020 after counseling with Patrice for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, and grief

Patrice has been very helpful to my mental health. I normally overthink and panic about things and do impulsive things as a result but having her to share my thoughts with and talk things out has been so helpful. She understands and give me good advice and asks questions that help me sort out my feelings.

Patrice is very supportive and her demeanor makes talking about difficult things easier. We’ve given her a big job, including being flexible with technology and she’s willing to do what it takes to get the job done.

Written by A.M. on Feb 22, 2020 after counseling with Patrice for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, and coping with life changes

After my original counselor left teen counseling, I was afraid of starting all over with someone new. But wow, Patrice is so calming and understanding right from the start. She checks in with me outside of sessions and really hears what I'm saying when we are in our sessions. I think this is the first time I'm really seeing progress in my recovery. She is so great!

She is amazing. She provides close simple support when needed and more complex directive and tasks when needed. It really is individualized treatment based on what I need at each point in my therapy process.

Working with Patrice has been a joy for me. I've begun the long journey during a rough patch getting myself back. And better. She has helped me to be stronger and more able mentally than I was previously, to combat the negative thoughts and emotions and begin to think with gratitude. Big thanks to her for all her work!

Written by C.L. on Jun 27, 2019 after counseling with Patrice for 2 months on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, and parenting issues

Patrice has offered me guidance, insight and clarity when I really needed it.
I felt completely comfortable after just a few sessions to open up to her and I felt she could see what the salient points were amongst all my chaos.
I have recommended this service to a colleague but they are not ready yet.
With the pressures and pace of life today it is so beneficial to be able to access online support so readily, thank you all.
