Patty Rocklage is an experienced, licensed psychotherapist from Sudbury, Massachusetts. She specializes in marriage and family therapy, and has over 20 years’ experience in the profession. She was educated at the University of South Carolina and graduated in 1981. She says some of the common reasons people grow apart is lack of communications or financial problems. She recommends that the problems be dealt with as soon as they arise.
Patty has accomplished many things during her career. Her style of dealing with clients is warm and inviting. She takes pride in being able to help couples and families work out their differences and resolve their problems. She helps her clients communicate with each other openly and honestly. She claims that a major problem for couples is because they have conflicting personalities. With a neutral third party, like Patty in the middle, they can begin to see each other’s point of view and begin to break down the barriers between them.
Patty and her husband, Dr. Scott Rocklage, made a donation last year to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Chemistry department. Her husband Scott studied there. They gave their gift to upgrade the nanochemistry and nanotechnology lab. They were given a plaque that is displayed at the school.
