Patricia has helped my boyfriend and me to rebuild our relationship after some issues. She explains things in a way that is interesting and understandable and is very knowledgeable. I'd definitely recommend her to any of my friends. Thanks, Trish!

Trish Montanari has been providing family counseling for my adult daughter and I for the past 8 months. We all live in different states and the ability to connect and "do the work" has been life-changing for my family. Trish is extremely professional, nice, reliable, hard working, accessible and easy to communicate with. Her ability to not "take sides" in any situation and always provide helpful feedback and resources for both of us has made all the difference. My daughter and I look forward to continued work with Trish until we are confident our ability to communicate with each other in a healthy way is on solid ground.
