"I want to council your child"

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Patty Hollander.

I am a CREDENTIALED SCHOOL COUNSELOR and a certified life coach

I want to help you and your child have a happier, peaceful, and more productive life.
My goal is to improve your child’s self-esteem, enhance social and communication skills, improve focus for schoolwork, relieve stress and tension, aid in academic achievements and achieve greater peace of mind.

I give 30 minute individual counseling sessions and 40 minute group counseling sessions. My focus is to improve the well-being of your child.

I use several methods in my practice. Some of my methods are as follows:

What I Do


Physical Activity

Moving the body helps the mind. Various physical activities, including singing, are used to stimulate and “wake-up” the mind.


“Feelings” share: client shares how they’re feeling. This is proven to release stress.

NLP-Neuro Linguistic Programming

This is a method that reveals any underlying “impeding” thoughts that a person can have. The client then has a new positive affirmation to replace any self-defeating thoughts, hence changing the outlook on any situation.


Helps the client visualize what he/she wants in the future.

Guided Meditation

Facilitator speaks a dialogue to the client as he/she listens to relaxing music. Helps the client maintain and absorb all previous work in the session.

Goal Setting

Goals for the up-coming week.

Group Power Assist

Group members help individuals with goal setting and affirmations. Group sessions only.
