More about me

Licensing: MSW, M.Eds., LCSW
Years in Practice: 35
State: CA

I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of California and the state of Washington. I earned my Master of Social Work Degree from Washington University in St. Louis, and my Masters of Education from University of Texas San Antonio.

For the past thirty years I have worked in private practices, schools, juvenile courts and community health organizations doing therapy and mediation. I have worked with a wide variety of clients from children, young adults, families, and the elderly from diverse backgrounds. My specialties include, parenting issues individually or in groups, play therapy with children concerning friendships, grief and loss and autistic children's social needs. With teenagers ,and young adults our focus has been relationships, anger management ,and career choices, and with the elderly 65+ population their issues of loneliness and depression.

I am a compassionate and experienced therapist using a combination of approaches.

I work with my clients where they are, give them the space to explore and use their strengths and experiences in order to help them get to where they want to go. As we process together gaining an understanding of their struggle, they will simultaneously learn new tools and skills to foster healthy functioning self esteem and relationships.

Given the present social isolation, people are looking for a secure place to reach out and find support. I am passionate about helping those in need. I can offer a supportive and nurturing environment enabling clients to work through their challenges. I respect your courage for making the choice to work with Better Help to seek better understanding.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

patti played an important role in my life during my divorce. she gave me a space to speak freely and be vulnerable, but also helped me understand the impact on my kids, how to navigate difficult situations with my ex wife, and regained my confidence as a father. I will never forget this time of my life

Patti has a great ability to listen, but not only listen, she is really able to focus on what’s most important in what I have to say. She’s been fantastic about following up with me, and she’s great about asking questions that really make me think about who and where I am with my emotions. I feel much more in tune with who I am, and I have a revived sense of direction thanks to her help.

Patti is so uplifting and kind. She gives me time to talk through my problems and doesn’t make me feel rushed. Then after listening and validating what I am feeling she offers some suggestions for tools and homework that will help. I always feel more confident and calm after talking with her.

Patti is great! She definitely makes me feel heard, and is very uplifting. I sense a Person-centered therapy approach as her main approach. She does a great job at connecting feelings and experiences together to help me understand neurotic thinking patterns.

Patti has been a wonderful counselor for me over a period of 8 months. She is a compassionate and kind person who takes a lot of care to listen to what I am saying and help me identify patterns that are difficult for me to see otherwise. She has helped me build more support into my everyday life by experimenting with different strategies to identify what works for me. I am very grateful for my time with her.

K.A.·May 24, 2021


Patti is kind, patient, and her wealth of experience shows when diving into deep and/or heavy topics. She provides a safe, trusted environment to open up in, and the removal of any judgement was key in building a growth mindset.

N.O.·Sep 06, 2020


Patti is an absolutely wonderful counselor. She listens to me, engages with me, and I feel very comfortable with her. It took me several counselors before finding Patti, and she has been a perfect fit. Therapy has always made me nervous, but I feel completely relaxed during our sessions.

A.N.·Aug 30, 2020


It's still very early in our time together so I still do not know if this will work for me or not. She's seems understanding and caring which is very important to me.
