Patricio Armendariz, MA
Professional Counseling Associate
I work from the following theoretical approaches: Person-Centered Theory, Narrative Therapy, Strengths-Based Theory, Emotion-Focused Therapy with Attachment Focused Theory, Family Systems Theory, and Existential Therapy. These theories are utilized in a way that will best fit the therapeutic needs of each client. My philosophy to counseling is that building a strong therapeutic relationship is vital to making us feel brave to take steps towards change.
I am passionate about working with Latinx teens (11 years old and up) and families in addition to working with people who struggle with anger, grief and loss, life transitions, anxiety, communication issues, and/or family conflict.
I completed my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, and a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice from Lees McRae College in North Carolina. I graduated with a Masters in Marriage, Couple and Family Counseling from George Fox University in Oregon in 2022.

“I believe there is power in meeting someone where they are and lending an ear. People are able to change through empathy and support. They can work toward the life they desire when they are shown compassion for their authentic self. I guide clients in their growth journey and I believe the path we travel through treatment is a shared one. I want to walk alongside you as we discover your inner strengths to face what life throws at you."
