About Nona Patterson
Welcome... I am a clinical psychologist with over 30 years experience helping adults and adolescents resolve problems, improve relationships and achieve important life goals. I have worked with a wide range of issues. My areas of special interest include working with individuals undergoing emotional distress (depression, anxiety, fear and anger), relationship difficulties (getting along with spouse, family, friends or co-workers), adjustment to a change in one's life (loss of a loved one, separation/divorce, change in health status or work) and individuals recovering from narcissistic relationships (parents/partner)
I work with clients to identify goals that will help them to better their lives by improving their personal relationships, including their relationship with themselves, managing anxiety and/or depression and developing effective coping skills. I help clients make meaningful values directed behavior changes for overall improved life satisfaction.
I earned my doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the California School of Professional Psychology. I completed my doctoral internship at Broughton State Hospital/Cleveland County Mental Health Center. Prior to entering Private Practice in 1992, I worked for 3 years at the Community Mental Health Center. My office is conveniently located in the Southpark area of Charlotte, North Carolina.
