Therapy and Coaching for women who feel like something's missing.

Together, we can change that.

On the outside,
your life might look just fine.
But on the inside you don't feel fine.

You've lost track of an important part of yourself.

Maybe you find yourself wondering: Who am I now?

Your self-esteem and happiness need a boost.

You're hard on yourself and sometimes think you're not enough.

Stress and anxiety are frequent companions.

It’s difficult to relax and your thoughts can go a mile a minute.

You've been waylaid by loss or life transition.

You feel tender, struggling to make sense of things.

Your energy is low and you rarely feel joyful.

Your enthusiasm is missing and you wonder if you're depressed.

You thought your life would be more satisfying.

You’re tired of the constant striving and pushing through.

Compassionate therapy sessions that meet you right where you are. Counseling in Santa Rosa or online throughout California. Life coaching wherever you live.


Meet Patty, a counselor, coach and therapist in Santa Rosa CA and Sonoma County.

Welcome! My name is Patty Bechtold and I'm devoted to helping women find their way back to themselves.

My clients often feel a bit lost, or sense something’s missing in their lives or in themselves. They may be experiencing times of self-doubt, life transition, grief, depression, anxiety, unresolved trauma, or relationship challenges.

But no matter what brings you here, please know that you're not alone. In fact, I believe there is, within you, a wise voice of guidance and support, waiting in the wings.

Whether we meet for coaching or therapy in Santa Rosa, or through online sessions, my mission is to help you heal and unearth your deepest wisdom.
