Frequently asked Questions

What can I expect from course lessons?

Each lesson includes an insightful video and a series of journal prompts and exercises aimed at helping you to gain an upperhand on your struggle.

Are these Christian courses?

These courses are designed by a counselor who tries to be more like Jesus every day. For Christians, they often can lead to a deeper integration of the Gospel and a closer walk with God.  At the same time, I realize that people of all faiths (and no faith) can struggle with the effects of pornography. Everyone interested in these courses will find respectful and research-backed tools to help them take make the changes they desire, regardless of background.

What if I need more help?

As you will see in many of the courses, breaking free of entrenched habits or old wounds may require more direct therapy or counseling to overcome.  If you would like to meet with a therapist in person or online, reach out to me through the contact form and I will schedule a session or help you find a therapist that’s a good fit for you.  (Learn more about my individual and couple’s counseling here).

What if I'm not satisfied with the course?

If you do not feel like the Freedom For Online Course has been helpful for you, reach out to me via the contact form within the first 2 weeks after purchasing the course and I will refund you the tuition fee, no questions asked.

What if I can't afford the course?

I want everyone who is ready to make some changes to have the tools they need.  Although the fee for my courses reflects the overhead costs and time invested in the project, I do have discount codes available for those who cannot pay full price.  If you are struggling with the cost of a course, please contact me and I work with you to find a price that fits your budget.

About Pat

In my practice, I get excited when I see people walk away from struggle and shame into the life that God has for them. I integrate the skills I learned in pastoral ministry, from my work with over 150 clients, and from research-based counseling techniques from my Masters Degree in Clinical Mental Health. Every day, I work with individuals and couples just like you to help them overcome obstacles, repair their relationships, and shape their story as they move on to the next chapter.

I also love to help people work through issues associated with grief, depression, anxiety, addiction, as well as marriage and relationship conflict. I’m a big fan of pre-marital counseling too.

I’ve been married for 14 years.  I have 3 kids and I’m trying to get better at the New York Times crossword puzzle.

I am very grateful for the opportunity to see clients under the supervision and within the community of my colleagues at The Wellness Centers of Oxford and Tupelo. If this service isn’t the right fit for you, click here to check out the other therapists there.
