Announcement icon We provide in person, telephone and video visits, and we've been working hard to make our clinic safe for all members.
I am a compassionate, collaborative therapist who works with adults, adolescents and families to help them identify what they yearn for, recognize what is getting in the way of their accomplishments, and achieve rewarding changes in their lives. I help them recognize beliefs and habits that may serve as closed doors, and open themselves to more effective approaches which will help open doors. I find that communication and understanding of how other people work is a key to self understanding. I work from a holistic and psychotheraputic approach and I integrate life skills as tools which helps clients handle what they need right now.
My specialization is in couples and families. I can help you understand yourself & others in a way that no one has ever explained it to you before. I also work with courts on divorce, conjoint, parallel, reunification or coparenting and parenting. I welcome all who wish to improve their lives. If I can't help you myself, I will find someone who can.
I have noticed that communication is lost in this day and age even with all our technology. I specialize in communication with others and self. I will teach you to negotiate for the things you desire. Help you to understand yourself and others. Together we can find your true self.

Patty Filomeo's Groups

Couples Group (ongoing)

Couples deal with all sorts of life's challenges. We will process feelings such as frustration, guilt, exhaustion, fears and forgiveness. We will learn a new style of communication. Most of all you will hear from other couples and realize you are not alone. Not feeling alone in a relationship is half the battle. Asking for help is the other half. Give us a call and your half way to accomplishing your battle (metaphorically speaking). NOTE: Times change as group decides due to changes in lives and participants.
