Hello, I'm Patrick MiddletonLicensed Marriage and Family Therapist
I’m a Christian licensed Marriage and Family Therapist local to Bakersfield, CA. I work with children, families, and adults that are looking for professional therapy with Christ as the foundation.
Patrick and I met about 3 years ago. Shortly after our initial meeting he and I participated in some additional Christian counselor training through our church. During that time, as we sat at the same table and discussed the various counseling scenarios, I could tell that Patrick was a man of wisdom and careful thought. I recognized in Patrick a man who was observant of the situation as well as kind and respectful. Each time we discussed any topic, he created a warm environment for open discussion. I’ve also had opportunities to see Patrick serve others sacrificially at times when many would have not gone the “extra mile”. That comes from a kind and giving heart. People who need counseling often spend a great deal of time – as they should – determining who would be the “best fit” for their counseling needs. In my case, were I on the same determined path to find a good, clear-headed, and Christ-directed counselor who is a man of integrity, Patrick is the kind of man and counselor from whom I would want to gain help from.
