Personal

As a young man who quit on his commitments of education, athletics, and even family, it was through a Godly perspective that Patrick began to seek the core values for his life. On this new path he became rededicated to his education, reconciled with his family, and started a family of his own. Nonetheless, Patrick's greatest awakening was becoming a father of seven beautiful children.

Vision

Patrick's inspiration to counsel is multilayered. Foremost is his desire to provide a safe and supportive environment that allows others to disclose obstructive fears and insecurities. Also, with a focus on Godly principles, it's his inspiration to amend hurtful and destructive behavior patterns in children, marriages, and families. As a whole, Patrick embraces the opportunity to help others through a Christian perspective while strongly valuing professional excellence and accountability as defined by national counseling standards. Furthermore, blessed in his relationships as a husband and father of seven beautiful children – by no means of personal qualifications but by application of tried and true principles –, it's his desire to introduce hope to every individual in their unique experiences, callings, and struggles.
