Meet Patricia A. Witt, MA, LMFT
I have worked in the area of eating disorders at Park Nicollet for more than fifteen years, first as a registered dietitian and currently as a therapist. I have enjoyed the challenge of helping my clients find their way through and out of the mindset of disordered eating and into a life where eating is not fraught with so many rules around food and can be enjoyed instead.
As a therapist, I work with clients to help them navigate toward the lives they want to live – without the eating disorder. I feel honored to hear about another person’s life and to help them through their challenges and triumphs. I have been intensively trained in several trauma therapies including eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), Trauma Informed Stabilization Therapy and Sensorimotor Therapy. I feel privileged to work with clients that have trauma in their background which may be contributing to the eating disorder.
My background in Adlerian Therapy enables me to work in a collaborative manner with individuals and families to assess and challenge individual beliefs and family systems. The goals of therapy are for families and individuals to be more connected to others, for individuals to become more connected to themselves, to make effective decisions and to live happier lives.

More about me
I realized my passion was being trusted with someone's story and helping them to make changes that would allow them to live their best life.
Patients can expect empathy, connection, creative collaboration and flexibility. I'm easygoing, but not afraid to work on hard things.
St. Paul, MN
Friendly, funny, happy, straightforward and loyal.
Treat others as you want to be treated. Be kind, because you never know what the other person is going through.
I love the different seasons.
I returned to school midlife to become a therapist, I raised a good human, and I use the same skills I encourage my clients to use.
I will work hard for you and with you. I will continue to learn, so I can provide you with a quality experience. I have a lot of energy and am willing to try new things and I love my job.
