She has successfully counseled Individuals, Couples, and Families, as well as, led groups. She received her Ph.D. from the California School of Professional Psychology, San Diego in 1977.

Patricia still enjoys what she does after all these years. She is also continually working to increase my skills and stay current with treatment models. She has been specially trained and certified as an Imago therapist and has been using this model to help couples and singles for the past 16 years. She is certified as a Workshop Presenter by the internationally recognized organization, Imago Relationships International.

Patricia is grateful to have found a profession that has enriched her personally and professionally. She is an intuitive clinician who is always looking for new ways to treat her clients and has integrated many frameworks into her work.


Patricia have been in a committed relationship for 20 years with the love of her life, Steve. Patricia and Steve have used the Imago ideas and practices to enhance their relationship. Although she does not describe Steve as a "touchy feely" sort of man, he has been an enthusiastic supporter of Imago therapy and its theories. Patricia believes that her work with couples has helped them to move through the tests of long term relationships.
