Sometimes life feels like a labyrinth of choices, full of erratic relationships and life altering change, which can be difficult to maneuver.  If you question your meaning and purpose in life, feel overwhelmed and unsure of the next path, or struggle with identity or relationships in life, Patti might be a good fit for you. Patti is a holistic clinician who focuses on balance of life.  She believes in helping people heal from the inside out by finding balance in their emotional, physical, relational, and spiritual areas of life. She works from a systems approach to explore how a person’s past and present environment is affecting current life functioning.  Other approaches integrated into therapy include DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy), and Mindfulness practices to help bring awareness to distorted thoughts and body sensations.

Patti works with teens and adults ages 15 and up, and she offers individual counseling sessions for $115/hour.  Contact Patti at patti@columbiapsychology.com, or click below to schedule an appointment.
