A graduate of David Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN, she obtained a BA in Communications (theatre), Art and Psychology and began work with the Tennessee Department of Children Services investigating sexual abuse cases. In 1989, Pat graduated with a Master of Science in Social Work from the University of Tennessee and began work with the TN Department of Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities. Over the years, she has also worked with psychiatric facilities, managed care companies and intensive outpatient and partial hospitalization programs.


Pat excels at working with adults that are coping with depression, anxiety, adjustment/life-transitions, grief/loss, abuse (child or adult), and/or spiritual issues. She has extensive experience working with those managing past trauma, including sexual abuse and domestic violence. Pat and her clients address ways to establish safety and identify coping skills for improved daily functioning. Pat also has valuable experience as a case manager, and is able to provide supplemental resources as needed to her clients.

I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, Bipolar, relationship issues, parenting problems, bipolar disorder, grief and loss, gender identity, PTSD, OCD, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

I am retired military, and I have interacted with people from a mixture of cultural and ethnic backgrounds. That is something I consider in therapy with others as this is very important to understanding their beliefs, values, and behaviors. I am a proud alumna of Norfolk State University where I received a Bachelor of Arts. I then went on to earn my Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology from Bowie State University. In addition, I completed my Doctorate degree in Community Care and Counseling: Marriage and Family Counseling from Liberty University.

My counseling style is warm, direct, and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I do not believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, existential, and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor your treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to pursue for a more fulfilling and happier life. I am proud of you for taking the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support, to encourage, and to empower you on that journey.

I am experienced in working with Trauma and abuse , Grief , Intimacy-related issues , Parenting issues , Anger management , Self-esteem , Coping with life changes , Coaching , Compassion fatigue , Bipolar Disorder, Blended Family Issues,  Abandonment, Attachment, & LGBT related issues.

Manuel Santarriaga, LPC

I have been passionate about helping others since I was very young, and fifteen years ago, I discovered that I wanted to do more to help people. Because of this, I acquired a Masters of Education degree in Counseling from Sul Ross State University in 2013, and became a Licensed Professional Counselor.  I have been in the helping profession for more than 11 years, and I have worked in different settings including a psychiatric hospital, a substance use agency, and different mental health outpatient clinics where I have obtained years of varied experience helping individuals and families.

My experience encompasses helping people living with mental health issues such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, depression and anxiety among others.  My training includes, but is not limited to, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Parent Child Interactive Therapy, Prolonged Exposure Therapy, Group Crisis Intervention, Motivational Interviewing, and Trauma Informed practices. 

 

Extensive training has provided me with the tools to assist people in healing trauma, which has been the heart of my work.

I believe that the therapeutic relationship between clients and therapists plays a central role in healing, and the sessions I conduct focus on empathy, kindness and attentive listening centering on your experiences. I work to create an environment in which you can feel safe. 

One can be kind to family, friends and even strangers, and I believe that each person is a valuable human being that deserves to be treated with kindness; this includes self-kindness. I hope to be the person to guide you in your journey to heal.

I am also able to provide services in English or Spanish.
