About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, in the state of Texas, with over 15 years of experience providing therapy. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree focusing on psychology and sociology and a Master's Degree in Social Work, both through Indiana University. I offer strength based, solution focused therapy and I am dedicated to helping clients gain insight around their personal challenges by implementing a positive approach. My goal is to provide a safe environment for individuals to explore underlying origins to their problems. I believe understanding leads to to a greater responsibility, which ultimately provides freedom. I offer encouragement for clients to draw on their spiritual beliefs for comfort and support as they work through various issues.

As a wife, mother of six and grandmother of many, I also bring much life experience to my therapy. I have been a part of various denominations over the years and am attracted to non-denominational congregations. As an individual, I have actively participated in my own healing journey by attending both individual and couple's therapy and I encourage our adult children to do the same as needed. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I would be honored to partner with you in your own journey of growth and understanding, which can be very liberating.

I have put off using the app and needed this. She has been very responsive and helpful in the ways that I have needed so far.

This is something I should have done a long time ago. I credit my healing and incredible experience solely to Patricia Donovan.

I've worked with a couple of other therapists and have enjoyed working with Patricia the most. She is easy to talk to and very willing to provide different ways of thinking of situations. It's very refreshing to be able to speak without judgement and to receive validation for how I'm feeling. I've enjoyed my time working with Patricia.
