Bakersfield Child Therapist

As a Christian Therapist providing therapy to children in Bakersfield, the challenges I most often help with are those related to ADHD, anger, depression, anxiety, conduct (i.e. lying, stealing, aggression), life stress/trauma, and bullying. I love to help children work through what’s bothering them, strengthen their ability to cope with life stress, and I enjoy partnering with parents to identify strategies on how to support their child’s unique needs.  Sometimes this includes a combination of individual therapy and family therapy, and I use a variety of professional therapy techniques that are consistent with a Biblical worldview..

Things can and do change. There is always hope.

I use the Bible for references of faith and if you’d like to know more about my beliefs, please read my article: Christ-Centered Parenting: Ideas To Consider, or feel free to contact me for more questions.

I’ve known Patrick for eight years as a professional colleague and good friend.  He has always impressed me as a trustworthy man who loves God and cares deeply about his clients.  His heart  is to truly help everyone he knows, including me, to have a happier, healthier life, and to know the joy of God’s love every day.

Patrick is easy going and easy to talk to. He truly listens to you and is empathetic to what your needs are. He doesn’t force his professional viewpoint as he allows you to naturally go through the steps in a way that doesn’t feel like therapy.
