She is very dynamic and can work with a group of people and keep several trains of thought going at one time. She knows how to connect with an audience with compassion and focus, and really knows how to have fun with people. People love Patrice and really open up in her presence. I contracted with Patrice to do some extensive course design, logistics and accelerated learning presentation training. She knows all the angles of training from the first words on the drawing board to packing the boxes after the last client leaves the room. She is extremely competent and creative and I enjoy working with her very much. We have always had rave reviews about Patrice.”

“Through her tough but gentle approach, Patrice has empowered our 20-year old ADHD son to succeed in college. Since third grade we have been dragging him to counselors and specialists; he hated them all. When I told him about Patrice, he initially refused to meet her. Finally, he agreed, but just for 1 or 2 sessions. That was a year ago; quickly he bonded with Patrice, and now he treasures his tightly scheduled telephone sessions with her. It's an expense, but the skills and strategies she gives him are priceless. Freedom Focus is teaching him to be a possibilities thinker, to set goals, and to stay focused.” Linda Vanderwold, President, VanWrite Systems
