Pratik Patel, LPC-MHSP
I Pratik Patel am a Licensed Professional Counselor- Mental Health Service Provider. I received my Bachelor’s in psychology from Middle Tennessee State and Master’s in professional counseling at Tennessee State University. Currently I serve as Clinical Director for an adolescent residential facility with 5 years of clinical experience in a multitude of settings. My experience includes working with clients dealing with substance abuse, relationship issues, mood disorder, personality disorder, co-occurring disorders, depression, anxiety, crisis and trauma.
My interest in psychology was sparked by pure curiosity and blossomed into a passion for helping others reach their full potential. I pride myself on providing a safe space for clients to process their thoughts and emotions without fear of judgment. Empathy is prioritized in building an effective client-therapist relationship. With Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as a foundation of therapy, clients dictate their own treatment with an emphasis on meeting the client where they are. Use of evidenced based modalities are determined by what is most effective in reaching the client’s treatment goals. A solution focused integrative approach is also important to accomplish and maintain identified goals.
I was born in London, raised in India, Rhode Island and rural Tennessee. I believe my life experience allows me to connect with a broad range of clients, often offering a unique perspective. I am and avid sports fan, I love watching and playing all sports. I also stay active by going to yoga class, hikes and bike rides with my wife and our friends. When we are not outside we are tying to one up each other in the kitchen, eating at our favorite restaurants or spending quality time with family.
