patriciaI have worked therapeutically with individuals, couples and groups for twenty-nine years. My professional background is in chemical dependency, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, as well as, a Nationally Certified Counselor. I have found that my experience in the recovery process applies to many issues people face, and I value the practical aspects of change. Licensure and national certification means that I have met substantive post-graduate and continuing education criteria, including a national examination.

I graduated from West Virginia University Masters Program in Counseling and Guidance in 1984. I trained at the Gestalt Institute of Cleveland from 1994-1997. Gestalt Therapy is an expressive, action-based approach to growth, which supports an individual’s ability to notice self in the moment and understand one’s meaning-making process. This is a collaborative process between therapist and client.

My continued interest and education has included training in energy medicine techniques, trusting and strengthening intuition, mind body practices and developmental somatic psychotherapy. Each of these has enhanced my own life as well as developed my skills as a therapist.
