Richard L. Patnaude, MA, LPCC

Richard Patnaude’s family is originally from Quebec and related to Jesuits who were makers of rosaries.

From Richard’s website:
Most people come to counseling at the point where they feel unable to continue bearing the emotional burden of events in their life.  Sometimes one is compelled to seek counseling by others who care about them.  What matters most is that you take full advantage of the opportunity life has presented you to change something about the way you live going forward.  Even if you cannot change your world, you do have incredible power in your grasp to change the way you experience your world.  I can help you learn to make and sustain the changes you seek.
