Pat earned her bachelor's degree in Business Management from Widener University in 1996 and worked in the energy industry for most of her career. In 2018, she decided to shift gears and go back to grad school. Pat was personally affected by her mother's alcoholism, and she wanted to help people struggling with addiction, as well as their families. She graduated from Immaculata University in 2018 with a Masters' Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and a certification in Substance Abuse and Addiction. Pat believes addiction touches everyone in the family, and part of recovery involves repairing relationships, gaining back trust, and improving communication. Pat uses various therapies such as Choice Therapy, CBT, and experiential techniques, while integrating holistic approaches and mindfulness. A core belief in these approaches is that with self-awareness, every person has the ability to heal themselves and make positive changes in their life. Pat is a member of the National Association for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors (NAADAC) and is recognized as a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC). She is also a member of Gateway Community Church and serves on the Welcome Committee and Strategy Implementation Committee, which plans community volunteer outreach events.
