Patti is a Holistic Occupational Therapist and a Rubenfeld Somatic Synergist in training.
It is her mission to provide guidance and support for expansion toward one’s authentic self through meaningful engagement in occupation and awareness of self: mind, body, spirit and emotions.
Patti’s diverse background includes an occupational therapy practice in rehab hospitals, outpatient clinics and home care settings, serving an older adult population. Patti also served eight years as an assisted living director and regional interim director across the eastern United States.
Patti’s personal journey has led her to create Wellness Rising as a way to provide clients with holistic occupational therapy services and complementary and integrative practices for an enriching and unique experience to health, healing and wellness. These practices include breathwork, meditation, guided visualization, emotional freedom tapping, and body awareness activities, to name a few.
Patti is currently a student of the Rubenfeld Synergy Method, a talk-touch approach for health and wellness, impacting one’s mind, body, spirit and emotional self. Through increasing somatic awareness with a gentle touch, humor, insight and compassionate, skilled listening, the Rubenfeld Synergy approach guides clients to tap into the rich resource of information the body holds. Somatic discoveries can lead to greater ease of movement, decreased pain and stiffness, and an improved sense of balance, groundedness and emotional and spiritual clarity.
This work greatly compliments and enhances the traditional occupational therapy service model and is an essential part of Patti’s practice.

This includes activities of daily living that may be impacted by an illness or injury such as meal preparation, household management, effective management of medications, work, sleep, play and spiritual practice.
