Patricia’s Practice Areas
One of Patricia’s greatest strengths is her ability to form close professional connections with clients and their families, with a deep sense of respect and honesty. This creates a strong foundation upon which to forge trusting therapeutic partnerships. She works side by side with clients, motivating them toward goal attainment in their treatment programs.
For Patricia, the goal is for clients to see their worth and their abilities and strengths, especially in times when they feel at their lowest. Patricia comes along side clients to help them gain the confidence to know that they are capable in handling their daily stressors independently, in a positive manner!
