Patricia Ptak

Feeling worried, anxious or depressed or are you stuck in an unsatisfying relationship? Do you struggle with feeling good about yourself? Do you want to improve your motivation and achievements? Sounds like you need a change, and there is no better time than now. I have focused my work on helping the individual and family heal from a place of love and understanding. Pulling from multiple evidence based counseling techniques and foundations of counseling including CBT and EMDR, I blend authentic caring with here and now problem solving and skill building to handle the ebb and flow of life.

I provide a safe and non-judgmental space for you to explore your moods, thoughts and behaviors and to learn how to make the changes to improve your life. Learn how to achieve happiness and goals that you set. I completed EMDR training with Christy Sprows, Psy. D. in September 2018 and have completed the certification course requirements.

Areas: enhancing mood & quality of life, lifting depression, calming anxiety, restoring sleep, banishing self-defeating cycles, healing from break ups, adjusting to change, women's' issues enhancing relationships, family conflict, loss & grief, guilt & forgiveness, improving marital satisfaction, parenting effectiveness, thriving in your career.
