EASTERN SLOPE COUNSELING AND CONSULTING

Richard L. Patnaude, MA, LPCC
505-286-6112
http://esccnm.com

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.

If you contact me: I have changed the place where visitors to this website can make and reply to comments. This became necessary because comments were made on the various pages and so they could not be tracked properly. Comments should now be made at the BOTTOM OF THE PAGE “FORUM & COMMENTS”, if you want other people to see them and reply (or directly to me at fmpatorni@earthlink.net) . I have disabled the comments feature on the other pages. The comments that you made on various pages in the past are in my personal log, I will try to shift them to the new page, but until then the old comments will remain on the page where they were originally made.

I reply directly to the comments by e-mail to the sender, as well as occasionally through this website. This is for purely practical reasons in managing the website.
