About Patty

I have been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Florida for 40 years. I am available to provide in person and virtual therapy in Tallahassee, Florida only.

I became trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy in January of 2016. Since that time (as appropriate and needed) I have utilized the alternative therapeutic many times with clients. EMDR is used as a therapeutic intervention for trauma, from minor to major. If you would like to learn more, please access the webpage at http://www.EMDR.com.

I attended Florida State University for both my undergraduate (Social Work) and graduate degrees (Counseling and Human Systems). Prior to beginning my private practice in 1983, I worked for ten years at a local community mental health center. While there I worked initially in the field of gerontology, and later as a crisis stabilization clinician. During my last four years there, I worked in a prevention education program, aimed at reducing the incidence of and increasing the knowledge about alcohol and tobacco use in the public school system.
