Bio

Dr. Patricia Anne Romano

Patricia Anne Romano, M.A.

I obtained a Master’s degree in counseling with a concentration in sexual orientation from Goddard College and have a Certificate in Gerontology from the University of Saint Joseph. Most recently I have been ordained as an interfaith minister. I have also completed post-graduate work in clinical psychology at Ryokan College.

Areas of competency and proficiency:

  • Relationships
  • Sexual deviance
  • Spirituality
  • Gender
  • Sexuality
  • Male health and wellness
  • Life-span development
  • Levels and stages of depression
  • General health and well-being
  • Personal/family changes as a result of medical conditions
  • Grief, loss and bereavement – along with death and dying concentration on pet loss; aging and personal life changes
  • Gerontology

I am an instructor of psychology with experience teaching capstone/seminar courses as well as creating individual student learning programs.

I am also an ordained interfaith minister. I believe spirituality can be an anchor for individuals seeking a deeper understanding of life events, their own personal beliefs and behaviors and most importantly for obtaining emotional healing and well-being.

It is my personal belief that for life to be in balance, one should be open to change, growth and acceptance of self as well as others. With the many life stressors that surround us each day, it can be difficult for us to stay in constant balance and, like any other program – nutrition, exercise or academic – individuals should have access to the variety of emotional tools that can help strengthen and maintain one’s locus of control.

As an individual who experiences health challenges, my hope is that I can offer guidance, inspiration and positivity to individuals, couples and/or families that are experiencing health issues and concerns. Together we can refocus thoughts, actions and feelings that may keep us from seeing our own abilities and, instead, acknowledge and take pride in our daily accomplishments so that we can begin to explore new aims, goals and strategies for a life that is filled with satisfaction, contentment, happiness and balance.
