LPC | Clinical Counselor Director
Welcome! My name is Hazel Patel, LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) and our Clinical Counselor Director. I received my bachelors in science degree at University of North Dakota where I double majored in psychology & biology. Following my passion to continue to help people I pursued my Masters degree from the University of Chicago in clinical psychology and Masters of Science degree in Applied Behavioral Analysis. Achieving both training (counseling and behavior analysis) has given me the well rounded knowledge of how to provide mental health alongside behavioral support to individuals and families.
I believe in working alongside indviduals to improve thier experiences through life changes. You are the expert on your own life. I am passionate about treating people as human beings full of complexity, courage and growth. My approach combines Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
Outside of the incredible people I get to work with; you can find me petting my cat (Raven, she is a Devon Rex)! Spending time with my husband, eating delicious foods, riding my peloton/ going on hikes and continuing to learn how to cook Indian meals!
