Patricia McDermott, MFT
I don't recommend Patricia at all. On my first visit she said that is very important for the kids to see their parents working together to provide the best for them and to also see them on a daily basis (which I agreed), but on her report sent to the judge Patricia recommended to allow my ex-wife to move with my kids to a different county as my ex-wife wanted cutting down the time that I spend with my kids in half. Patricia doesn't look for the best interest of the children she looks for the best interest of the person that she likes. Patricia knew that my ex-wife took my oldest son from school that's why he got dropped from the programmed, my ex also didn't follow the visitation court orders and didn't take them to the doctor that's why I filed for physical custody but thanks to Patricia and the unequal gender system that we have in Monterey County I lost my kids in court.
