Bio

   Pat has worked in human service field for twenty-five years, with a concentration in addiction studies and behavioral science. In her social work career, she has served the marginalized and misunderstood population through the court system, domestic violence, and in community mental health. As a person in long-term recovery, Pat acknowledges the challenge and stigma attached to untreated alcoholism and addiction. Her experience as an active alcoholic, once a crippling deficit, is now is her greatest asset. As a recovered alcoholic, through a spiritual awakening as a result of the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, Pat is unafraid to share the good news that the answers lie within. While engaged as a community mental health clinician, Pat began to consider an integration of clinical therapy with contemplative practice. Inward Grace, is this offering. Now as a Contemplative Clinical Practitioner, Pat combines her clinical experience with her intuitive spiritual guidance. Website at InwardGrace.com.
