Hi!  I’m Patti and welcome to Sage Path Therapy LLC.  The stream of letters trailing behind my name signifies my professional pursuit searching for solid solutions to the distress and dis-ease that is an increasing reality for so many people.  As a Registered Nurse, Nurse Practitioner and Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, my passion is assisting people find personalized solutions tailor made for them and supporting them in achieving their goals for health and happiness.

I have worked in both traditional medicine and complimentary therapies, always looking for the most effective therapeutic modalities. I discovered that while traditional medicine is necessary, it gives little time and attention to the more cost effective and life enhancing possibilities of wellness and disease prevention.  It is also behind in integrating the current science of Mind-Body connection. I believe there are many tools available to achieve optimal wellness and using the power of the mind to create life-enhancing change is one of the best.

I am a Certified Medical Support Clinical Hypnotherapist (CMS-CHt) with 500 hours of training from the Hypnotherapy Academy of America in Albuquerque, NM.  As an advocate for excellence and professional standards, I belong to and am a Fellow with the International Board of Hypnotherapy. (FIBH #10716-451).

I received my Masters of Science in Nursing from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee where my focus of study was adult health and the link between emotional distress and the chronic diseases of obesity, diabetes and heart disease.  I am a Board Certified Adult/Geriatric Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (AGPCNP-BC) specializing in the primary health concerns of people ages 12 and older.

I am a Registered Nurse (RN) and received my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Mount St. Mary’s College in Los Angeles, California. In the early 70‘s, Mt. St. Mary’s College was ahead of its time in championing the idea that people were complex beings made up of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects all working together to maintain balance and health.  There was little science to support this back then, but my traditional healthcare beginnings were grounded in Mind-Body principles that are now showing promise for the future of wellness and prevention.

Experience includes:

Complimentary Therapies: Clinical Hypnotherapy, Massage Therapy, Coaching and Esoteric Healing.

Conventional Healthcare: Community-based Clinics, Medical Oncology, Hospice, Medical-Surgical Care, Intensive Care, Emergency and Urgent Care.

Education: Nursing curriculum at a community college and guest lecturer to many professional and community organizations on subjects of Stress Reduction and Complimentary Therapies.
