She implements psychodynamic, family systems, cognitive behavioral and solution-focused theoretical frameworks to her diverse client case-load.

In a positive psychotherapeutic environment, Patricia applies a professional standard of care and personalized attention to specific client needs. Patricia offers three conditions of client treatment: a compassionate approach with empathic understanding, (i.e., walking in the clients shoes as they walk in them), unconditional positive regard, (i.e., every human being is worthy of dignity and respect), and congruence (i.e., genuine, authentic, and honest reactions from the therapist).

Patricia utilizes real world treatment plans and a wide array of resources and referrals to ensure that clients receive realistic results. Psychotherapeutic treatment goals include helping clients gain self-awareness so that they may improve interpersonal relationships and resolve problems and life crisis situations in an effective, time sensitive manner.

Specialties include treating individuals, couples, children, adolescents, and families with a wide range of clinical issues including adjustment, anxiety, attention deficit/hyperactivity, depressive, eating, mood, personality, posttraumatic stress, and psychotic disorders.
