I have worked with teenagers for over 16 years. I am very open, down to earth, and I have a decent sense of humor, all of which I believe are important when working with teens today. I do my best to make my clients feel heard and understood. Confidentiality is very important when working with teens as they need to feel safe talking about the issues they are dealing with. However, they also need to understand the limits of that confidentiality as well. I will have this conversation with the teens I work with so they understand that I am a mandated reporter and need to always consider their safety above all. This includes any disclosure of abuse, any threats to harm themselves, or any threats to harm others.
I have experience working with teenagers who are struggling with depression, anxiety, ADHD, school issues, peer relationships, family issues, trauma, and anger management. I am also able to assist with developing communication, social, coping and problem-solving skills. I have worked extensively with children who have been deemed a Person In Need of Supervision (PINS) and those who have been placed on probation due to juvenile delinquency. I also have extensive experience working with children who have been identified as having learning disabilities and mild cognitive issues.

I’ve been through therapy before and felt like I was talking to a brick wall—which I can do on my own thanks. But teen counseling matched me with the perfect therapist for where I’m at in my journey right now. Patricia makes me and my feelings feel seen and right off the bat she asked what my intentions were with starting therapy and, just starting out the gate, she created the structure I needed to understand for myself why I was here and what I wanted to get out of it. She creates the space for me to link in my budding spirituality and woo interests and I’m just so grateful that teen counseling matched us up. I highly recommend her and her skills.
Patty has been great so far!!
Patti was a match for my son. She gave both of us some great tools to help navigate through this difficult time. He is getting back to his old cheerful self. Patti was easy to talk with and very supportive. Definitely will seek her out again, if needed.
Patti has been an amazing support to me during this extremely difficult time. I am so happy that she is my counselor.
Patty is an excellent therapist and helped me get through a rough patch. She is highly knowledgeable and has a great deal of compassion. I would highly recommend her to others and I am very grateful for her time and expertise.
Patti is so great! She tells me things that I need to hear and her advices are very helpful and eye opening. She helped me get out of this bubble that I forced myself to believe in about a certain someone and she gave me that fresh outlook.
Patricia has been absolutely amazing!!! She listens, works with you and identifies an array of different techniques that can help you overcome what you're suffering from!!
Great and helpful at managing stress and finding ways to manage it.
Patti is truly one of a kind. She helped me through one of the most difficult chapters in my life. She was encouraging every step of the way and made me realize that there were certain things that were just out of my control. Patti guided me as I moved on from that chapter and into a better place. Patti was there for me as I worked on some goals and she was there when I accomplished those goals. Patti made me feel extremely comfortable opening up my life to her. I am beyond excited to connect with her again. This review doesn’t even begin to do justice on just how compassionate, kind and supportive Patti is.
Patricia is very understanding and relatable.
Patricia is amazing... I was always opposed to counseling, but a situation arose that I felt talking to a stranger would be best. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done, & wish I found it sooner. Also, I realize I may be able to help with other areas of my life. Keeping things inside & bottled up is not good. We all have problems & now I feel better that I have someone to help me through. Completely nonjudgmental...not sure I would have made through my main problem & reason for needing to talk to someone without her. I was skeptical of therapists but, not anymore.
Patty is amazing. I’ve been in her care for almost 4 years now and am not sure if my mental state would be good without her. She is a friend, very professional, non-judgmental, wants to always help and is very knowledgeable . I feel very lucky and grateful that she is my therapist :)
Patricia has really helped me as I went through hard times in my life. Helping me climb out of a dark hole is difficult and daunting. It helps when you have support and guidance.
Patti has been a blessing in my life. I have tried countless counselors and they all fell short in getting to my root issues. She’s stuck with me and has slowly and successfully started getting into the weeds and truly helping me. I’d be lost without her. She’s truly changed my life.
Patti is exactly who I needed to get me through some struggles I had been having with jealousy and feeling second best. She is extremely empathetic, but what I appreciate most about her is how down to earth she is. It feels like talking to a friend every time we talk. Her sense of humour is so refreshing to see. It has been so amazing having her support in a setting that isn't clinical like other therapists I have seen in the past. She really opened my eyes to a lot of different points of view and has helped me become a more understanding person. Every time I talk to Patti, I feel as though a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.
I was having the worst Fall ever last year, I had started with Patti shortly before. I have really appreciated the time I spent with her. She has been supportive, listened without judgment, and always just done her best to look after my wellbeing and help me create ways for feeling and living a better life. It has been an awesome period of growth and I am so grateful. Thank you!
Patti has been incredibly responsive, supportive, and genuinely helpful since day 1 of my matching with her. I was really hesitant about online counseling and about the process of being matched with someone based on a short survey and a paragraph, but Patti has made a believer out of me. She has been wonderful to work with and I would definitely recommend her.
Patricia is very understanding and helps you find ways to cope or handle difficult situations. No judgement, just support. It’s hard for me to open up but she makes it so that it is not to hard to vent when I need to.
She is very understanding.
Patricia is very open, available, and insightful! Seems to really care about her clients.
Very responsive, understanding, and gave great advice.
So kind and understandable. Really love the experience with her!!
Thus far Patricia has reached out to me for more information, which is greatly appreciate and a good start. I have tried to provide as much information for her to help. Hopefully I provided enough information for her to assist so far so good for our first communication
Patti has been wonderful from day one. She makes me feel very comfortable expressing my feelings and thoughts. Patti is very efficient in responding in a timely manner. Talking to Patti over the phone was also a great experience and she has such a caring and concerned tone. Patti tries her best in assisting with worksheets and exercises to better assess and help you. Patti takes her time in reading all details and gives a lot of thought in her responses.
She's been absolutely wonderful in helping me break down my negative thought patterns and obsessions!
Persistent in proving she's there for you. You just get a good vibe from hearing from her. She just comes off authentic and not just giving you generic opinions
Amazing and understands my circumstances.
I like Patricia Pardy and her approach to counseling in general. I feel that she takes time to read through the issues and provides options to choose from. She also is direct in communicating the options/possible solutions to issues. I like her professionalism and the way she is sensitive yet objective in presenting solutions/options to me.
I have seen several therapists/counsellors locally over the past decade, and while I found great help with them, I was recently really drawn to the ease and timeliness of teen counseling's model. Not only have I found it to be very convenient (and much more affordable than in-person therapy), which helps me stay engaged and motivated to continue with my treatment, but I have also been pleasantly surprised at how comprehensive and professional my care has been.
Patricia Pardy, has been phenomenally supportive, patient and kind, and her insight has already helped me so much. I likely have a long road ahead of me to get back on track to where I want to be, but already I feel so much more hopeful and able to make efforts now that I have Patti "in my corner". I couldn't have anticipated being this satisfied with a program like this at all, let alone after only a few weeks, but have now already referred 2 friends to check it out, and it will likely be my "go to"; referral for friends in need from now on.
Patricia has been working with me on my social anxiety and personal issues and has helped me tremendously with gaining the tools to deal with my issues. She is very patient, well informed, and always checking in on my progress to see how I am doing. Her professionalism, attentiveness, and care to your needs will give you the strength to commit to bettering yourself and progressing to a better you. I look forward to continuing our sessions!
I highly recommend this therapeutic venue and platform, as well, my counselor Patti. She has been very responsive and timely with her replies, and warm, engaging and supportive. She also offered helpful strategies, insight and feedback. I would most certainly return to teen counseling and panting in the future if needed.
