Patricia N. Butkus, LCSW 17300 El Camino Real, Ste. 107D Houston, Texas 77058  Patricia has over 10 years experience working with individuals, groups and families. She graduated from the University of Houston, Graduate School of Social Work with a degree in Social Work and a concentration in mental health, and attended the University of Houston Clear Lake, graduating Magna Cum Laude with an undergraduate degree in Psychology.  Patricia utilizes several treatment orientations, depending on the need of the individual.  For example, she uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (“CBT”), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Systems Theory, Psycho-educational Therapy, as well as the Eclectic approach.  Cognitive Behavioral Therapy works on the premise that growth and recovery is accomplished by solving problems concerning dysfunctional emotions, behaviors and cognitions — i.e., learning to change the way you think about yourself will result in changing the way you treat yourself.  Solution-Focused Brief Therapy focuses on what clients want to achieve through therapy rather than on the problem(s) that made them seek help. The approach does not focus on the past, but instead, focuses on the present and future.  The client is invited to envision their preferred future and then therapist and client start attending to any moves towards it, whether these are small increments or large changes. System’s Theory is the concept that explains holistically, the behavior of individuals by looking at the whole person environment relationships among individuals, groups, organizations, and/or communities and mutually influencing factors in the environment.  Psycho-educational Therapy refers to the process of teaching clients with mental illness and their family members about the nature of the illness, including its etiology progression consequences prognosis treatment and alternatives.  It involves helping the client understand and be better able to deal with the presented illness in order to avoid relapse and contribute to their own health and wellness on a long-term basis. Eclectic Theory is a collection of certain aspects of various theories or practice methods that appear to be most useful for practice interventions.
