THE PATTON PRACTICE
CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS
WELCOME, I'M THERESA PATTON
I began my journey in the area of addiction and mental health more than two decades ago.
CONSULTATION, ADDICTION WITH MENTAL HEALTH DISORDERS TREATMENT:
Many people don’t fully understand obsession and compulsion. Adjustments in your life, i.e., the death of a loved one, separation, divorce, trauma can incite racing thoughts, anxiety, depression and impulsivity. The feeling that creates a recklessness in you that includes risk-taking and poor decision-making, emotional eating, risky sexual encounters, alcohol and substance use. Addiction can illuminate mental health disorders. Sadly, no one is immune to what it controls and manipulates.
HOW WE'LL WORK TOGETHER:
I’ll challenge you and your thinking, while supporting the changes and goals you create for yourself. I will be your advocate and greatest supporter as you heal. I'm professional without being robotic and personal...sharing a bit of me along the way. What you say to me stays with me and remains private. I will do my homework and prepare for each session with you. I will remember what’s important to you and incorporate where it may fit. When we finish, I keep working, connecting the dots to develop clarity on things you’ve shared and where to journey during our next visit. I’m pretty shock-proof. I’ve heard almost everything there is, so no guilt or embarrassment. I’m human too.
THE THERAPEUTIC PROCESS:
Your scheduled appointment is "your time," whether it's for a brief consultation or clinical session. I’ll ask for your feedback and make sure we’re on the same page. Everything I bring to session and employ is evidenced-based and has solid research and outcomes supporting it.
My practice proudly works with adults and couples who are struggling with substance use and mental health disorders regardless of sexual orientation, religion or ethnicity. I am licensed to serve clients in Arizona, Indiana and North Carolina. I want to support you as you break the cycle of pain and guilt.
I am a private practitioner and clinical consultant who chooses to focus primarily on your specific treatment needs and ongoing care, therefore, I do not accept insurance. Invoicing statements are automatically generated to your client portal if you wish to submit them to your insurance company for reimbursement.
THERAPY & CONSULTATION FEES:
Session and consultation fees are due on or before the time of service.
New and active clients have access to the HIPAA compliant portal, which is the hub for communication between us.
Therapy is a process and will provoke awareness and engagement from you and is a commitment. I encourage all clients to maintain their dedication to the process to fully realize the positive impact therapy can offer or consider consultation focus on particular needs. Whatever your choice, it is an investment of the greatest commodity we possess...ourselves. I look forward to meeting you.
