Areas of Interest
As a clinical member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (AAMFT), Patty enjoys working with families, couples, adolescents and children and the energy they bring to the therapy process. Her goal is to help individuals and families use their strengths and resources to create solutions for their unique situations. Areas of special interest are adult and childhood Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, depression, anxiety, grief and loss issues and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Her core belief is that good decisions and choices flow from a healthy sense of self. She enjoys assisting parents in raising children to have healthy, positive self esteem and of course, helping adults do the same!
