About Me

Because being a teen is such a hard job with many challenges such as transitioning to adulthood, making plans for the future, relationships, self image, confidence building and many other issues teens face, feeling overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, angry, etc. can result.

Talk therapy that addresses faulty cognitive patterns can provide whole new ways to look at and feel about the world and it's challenges. I have 25 plus years working with teens & their families to overcome these challenges. I graduated from the University of Buffalo and am licensed in North Carolina and South Carolina.

Patricia is wonderful! She makes it very easy for my teen to open up to her; and she’s great about sharing real life experiences. She’s been instrumental in helping us determine the path ahead for our daughter!

I feel like Patricia 'gets' me! She helps me to discover things about myself that I have never thought about before. Which in turn helps me to make positive changes in my life.

Pat has been and incredible advocate for me! She checks in and cheers me on and has given me advice and tools to deal with professional and personal/familial conflicts that left me doubting myself. She’s been instrumental in helping me discover and unpack learned behavior I wasn’t even aware of and helping me understand and establish healthy boundaries with people in my life. I can undoubtedly say that I’ve been feeling better about myself and more comfortable with the way I walk through the world in large part thanks to her.

I was skeptical going into therapy in the beginning because I didn't think it was for me or that I even needed it. Patricia has opened a lot of new doors for me and has revealed a lot of solutions to some issues I have been faced with. I am a firm believer in therapy now and I strongly recommend Patricia if you are faced with some of the issues she specializes in. I cannot thank her enough for the help I have received.

Patricia has a lot of experience. Without experience, it is not possible to understand the challenges that a person is facing. I find Patricia to be very real and honest, and I have no problems opening up to her. I see her as an authentic human being, and this makes trust easier.

I love Patricia!

It has only been a few weeks of talking to her, but she makes me feel so, so, so much better every time we talk!

She is very encouraging, which is what I've been needing. She listens to me, and I feel like she completely understands me when I talk to her.

I feel comfortable to tell her what I'm feeling and that she will talk me through it. I appreciate the time I have with her and I feel better every time our session is over. She's helped me realize things I hadn't realized before and needed to understand about myself and people around me.

She seems very kind, and caring. I feel lucky to have her as my therapist
