My name is Patrick Currie, a Licensed Professional Counselor in Pennsylvania with over 20 years of experience helping people in various settings. I have worked in clinical, educational and correctional facilities providing individual counseling, psycho-educational group programs for violence prevention, drug abuse prevention, relapse prevention and anger management, conducting workshops and seminars on stress and time management, goal setting and decision making among other topics. I have continued to provide outpatient therapy addressing a range of issues - anxiety, depression, trauma and abuse, substance abuse, grief and loss, work and career problems, relationship issues, life transitions and more.
I received a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Widener University with a focus on behavioral medicine and health psychology and earned a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology at Temple University. My style is supportive and empowering, using elements of cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness and positive psychology to educate and inspire others to change and grow. I take a holistic approach to counseling, looking at every aspect of a person's life to identify strengths, build resiliency and encourage growth. I am also sensitive to the needs and challenges of individuals from different groups, including racial, cultural, LGBT, differently abled or other. I respect the values and experiences of my clients and I aspire to see the world from their perspective as we work towards the life they want to live. I look forward to hearing from you to help you reach your goals!
