My name is Patricia Haley but my clients affectionately call me “Ms. Pat”. I have been a licensed professional counselor in the state of Texas since 1997. I am also an approved LPC supervisor. I have worked with clients who are anxious, depressed, from traumatic and abusive situations, seeking self-improvement and resolutions of problems, parenting, and relationship issues. I have worked face-to-face at public schools, a private practice, and the psychiatric ward of a local hospital. A few years ago, I also started working online with students over 200 miles away. Although all teens have individual differences and needs, several areas are also common. Some of the areas worked on include developing life skills, responsibility, respect, caring, and trustworthiness. One special area is that of learning when and how to use refusal skills. Even for our precious teens, life is a gift that I strive to help them accept and use in the best way they can to meet their own goals and needs.
I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy a lot, but I also use whatever approach works best for the individual client and their circumstances. I find it worthwhile to determine what the client has tried in the past coupled with best practices to help them progress with fewer sessions and longer retention.

Ms. Pat is a wonderful fit for my daughter- she’s smart, caring & professional. Azalea is showing some progress already in a short time. Feeling very grateful our friend recommended this flexible & efficient program.
I haven't been a client of Ms. Pat's for very long. In this short time that I've been seeing Ms. Pat, she's not only taken in what all I've told her but also provided me with multiple coping skills for what I am going through. I see myself utilizing them everyday. Sometimes, I forget I am even doing a coping mechanism she taught! From the start, Ms. Pat is super sweet and kind. She understands that life happens and is not always fair but she's going to help you through it! Ms. Pat is a great listener!
Genuinely interested in what's going on in my life. Offers great advice.
Excellent listener,very strong work ethic,very reliable,on time, punctual she has helped me so much with PTSD,OCD, sexual abuse, abandonment issues,
