Patricia believes therapy should be like school for self discovery, challenging and something worth looking forward to. Treatment will focus on evidence based practices while finding what works with you outside of the box to address trauma related issues. Mindfulness strategies and techniques help guide the process while you learn adaptive skills to help reduce symptoms and move forward. You will find yourself solution-focused and learning to notice what change feels like.
