My relationship with Pat Baccili has impacted my life far beyond what I ever thought possible. From our first meeting my journey has been truly nothing short of miraculous. I was coming from a place of total despair and hopelessness; I had tried on my own, and through years of therapy to change my life but circumstances never changed and the frustration left me depressed and at the end of my rope.Pat saw the challenges I faced and taught me how to take control of my life (this wasn’t always easy). She never preached, never reprimanded, but always showed me another perspective through kindness and sometimes humor. More often than not I’d leave shaking my head wondering how she did it, but she did and I was always able to move forward and implement what I learned. Thanks to Pat I’ve found my life’s purpose and I’m writing a novel, a story that’s been in my head for decades. I don’t know where this will lead and on most days I don’t think about it, but when I do I know the possibilities are endless. I’m not going to lie and say I never have doubts, I still do from time to time but I will say my relationships with those I love are stronger and definitely more peaceful. There is one thing I know for sure, Pat has saved my life and I will be eternally grateful to her.
