Patricia Velkoff, PhD

Challenges come in all sorts of unexpected shapes and sizes. 

Fortunately, so do solutions.   

Faced with emotional difficulties or relationship problems, most of us can tell when our strategies are not working.  What's harder to find is another perspective or a different way forward. 

Getting timely and practical guidance from an experienced professional can make the difference between ineffective and frustrating results and results that are positive and satisfying.  This is particularly true in our relationships, where emotions can run high and the price of unresolved problems - for ourselves and for others - can be enormous. 

Dr. Velkoff has worked with individuals, couples, and families for over 30 years and has earned a reputation as an excellent listener, a clear thinker, and a pragmatic problem-solver. 

If you are looking for guidance in your relationships, help with your parenting, or thoughtful perspectives for yourself as an individual, meeting with a therapist can often help.  Dr. Velkoff may be a resource to help you gain clarity, think through challenges, and resolve problems with effective solutions.
