My approach to therapy is much the same as a tailor creates a custom made garment. One size does not fit all. We work together as a team to create a plan unique to your needs and situation. I use a variety of techniques to address all aspects of the problem: cognitive, behavioral and emotional. The goal is to develop a deep understanding and have an insightful experience that leads to change.
Why are you angry? Why are you stressed? Why aren't you getting along with your spouse or significant other? I have over 20 years of experience in helping people find themselves and get to the root of the problems they may have. I believe in listening and asking questions to help you find your way out of the darkness and show you how beautiful life can be.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) that has experience in both individual and group counseling in the mental health and substance abuse fields. I have experience in out-patient counseling and school counseling. I have worked with adolescents, young adults, and adults for over 15 years and realize that each family is unique, and that treatment needs to be individualized.
Dr. Patrice Dow-Nelson is not accepting any new clients at this time. Please check back. Thank you. I look forward to helping individuals and families who are seeking help coping with a range of psychological, emotional or behavioral challenges. Treatment approaches include an integration of psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness-based approaches; my work is guided by an understanding of multicultural and acculturation issues.
If you are considering therapy, it is likely that something significant in your life is not going the way you want it to, and you've not been able to change or resolve it on your own. It may be a troubled relationship, stress related to job/school/family/life transitions, the lingering effects of past or recent traumas–or something else–and involve feelings of worry, sadness, anger, distrust, frustration, loneliness or low self-esteem. My work is aimed at helping clients improve connections with others, resolve conflicts, heal from old wounds, better cope with stress, and increase contentment and hope for the future.

Are you concerned about your teenager or young adult? Do they seem disinterested, easily irritated or angered, or negative about themself or life in general? Maybe they’re struggling in school, or college, afraid to leave home, stressed out, or not taking care of themself the way they used to. They have goals for the future, but just don’t seem to care about them anymore. As their parent, you've tried to talk, but only get shut out, and now things appear to be getting worse and you're scared. They need help, and you want to find someone who is objective, understands today's younger society, and can help them get back on track.

Sometimes life, family, relationships, school, and work can all be challenging and leave us feeling that we have lost our footing. This can be overwhelming for many. Reaching out for therapy can be scary and finding the right fit with your therapist is paramount for success. I believe in supporting and empowering my clients so they can develop resiliency and see that their goals are attainable in therapy. By developing a strong therapeutic relationship, I am able to use a combination of encouragement and direction to help my clients make purposeful change.

As we continuously evolve in this journey called "Life", we all encounter many challenges that can hinder our ability to maintain a healthy mindset. Many of us tend to want the instant gratification of happiness and success but struggle with how to obtain it. Every client has unique situations, where one's sense of self-efficacy can play a major role in how they approach goals, tasks and challenges. These determinants play a major role in how thoughts are created, feelings are instilled and behaviors are executed. Therefore, through a wide range of individualized services customized and effective treatment plans are provided.
Perhaps “something” or “someone” in your life just doesn’t feel right…maybe you’ve been thinking about it for a while? Or maybe you just need to talk. We all need balance and healthy supports to create and maintain that balance. I am particularly enthusiastic about working with professionals who are experiencing “performance” fatigue, life stressors, anxiety, depression, grief/loss and/or unresolved trauma/conflict. I’m passionate about hearing YOUR story and journeying with you to achieve your goals. Let's work together to break the barriers that hinder growth, healing and freedom.
I am a bilingual Licensed Clinical Social Worker and conduct sessions in English and Spanish. I have been in helping professions in healthcare since 2010. I work with individuals of all ages and stages of life, and specialize in working with adolescents and their family.
Are challenging situations or persistent feelings and thoughts keeping you from achieving your true potential? Are they affecting your work, your relationships, or even your sleep?

Sometimes the circumstances in life are too much to handle without some help. You may feel stuck, faced with uncertainty, overwhelmed and stress. I am here to help you during this difficult time in your life. I have over 17 years of experiences working with adults, children/ adolescents and their families with a wide range of cognitive, behavioral and emotional issues in various settings.

Hold on, pain ends; it is only temporary. Anxiety and depression may feel paralyzing, especially in times like these. Keep holding on, for there is a way out! It is important to know that you know you are not alone and that there is support. I have many years of experience in the field, helping individuals to cope with symptoms of anxiety, depression, stress, and issues of grief and loss. I am nurturing, and I strive to allow you to find and feel your inner strengths. This process will allow you to challenge negative thoughts, by facing them and tackling them together.
I use traditional psychotherapy to examine conscious and unconscious motivations, as revealed through analysis of the client's discussion, creative works and dreams. I have been trained in hypnotherapy and integrate this tool as part of the treatment. In addition I have been working with the courts doing Custody Neutral Assessments, assisting the court to resolve custody issues.
