About Patricia

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony.”

The happiness that Mahatma Gandhi described springs from a life lived in mindfulness and congruency. This approach to a full and healthy life is at the center of healthy to the Core. Patricia has come to this work and philosophy through many twists and turns in her life, but all have led her to the understanding that awareness–whether of mind, body, or spirit–guides us to make the healthiest choices possible.

Self-study of alternative forms of healing has been her passion for nearly three decades. She has also studied and practiced meditation techniques, guided imagery, and chakra energy awareness.

A writer and life-long learner, Patricia is a certified Integrative Health Coach from Duke University’s Integrative Medicine program. In 2004, she completed a two-year program, “Sacred Contracts,” taught by renowned author and medical intuitive Caroline Myss at CMED Institute in Chicago. She holds a B.A. in Communication from the University of Alabama.

Patricia finds joy in being a mom and tending herbs, perennials, and orchids. She also revels in ecstatic dance, yoga (The Five Tibetans!), cooking, reading poetry, qigong and the regular practice of loving kindness meditation.

Her true passion is to help her clients accept and realize that they are already creative, resourceful, and whole, while also helping them to tap into their deep motivation to learn, change, and grow.
