Biography

Patrick (he/him/his) is a licensed master of social work, currently pursuing training for certification in sex therapy under the supervision of Dan Rosen, LCSW-R, CST. He earned his master’s degree from Roberts Wesleyan College and works full time at the Rochester Center for Sexual Wellness. Patrick has completed a post-graduate Social Work Fellowship at the University of Rochester Counseling Center. He has trained under several different psychotherapists with a range of approaches and experiences. He primarily uses Psychodynamic, Cognitive-behavioral, and Person-Centered therapy within his work.

My practice: I believe in working to understand people through listening, curiosity, empathy, and non-judgment. Gender, sex, and sexuality are all based on the individual bringing a uniqueness to what they might mean or how they show up. There may be a disconnect from who you want to or believe yourself to be and who you are right now. I am particularly interested in helping to close this gap, and gain a stronger understanding of the pieces in one’s life that influence and get in the way of discovering your authentic self. All your emotions serve a purpose and are trying to communicate something to you. I aim to help people learn, feel, and communicate these emotions to experience a more fulfilling life, improve relationships, manage psychological symptoms, and learn to cope with the pains that accompany growth. Your experiences and emotions are all understandable and valid, even if it isn’t immediately apparent why that is. Let me help provide the care, attention, and space that you and your feelings deserve.

Healing happens in community and connection. I care deeply about co-creating a safe and nurturing space, where you can examine and divest yourself of narratives that no longer serve you.
