About Dr. George Patterson

George Patterson, PhD, affectionately called "Dr. George" by his friends, peers and clients, has been working in the field of intervention and therapy for three decades.  Dr. George's work encompasses individuals, families, and businesses and includes specialized counseling within the entertainment industry.

Awarded the Gratitude Award for Lifetime Achievement in mental health and substance abuse treatment in the community by Sierra Tucson Treatment Center, and as founder of the Alpha Treatment Program at Glendale Memorial Hospital, Dr. Patterson has been recognized for his contributions in the areas of intervention and dependency counseling by the President of the United States, Governor of California, Senators Feinstein and Boxer, Congressman Adam Schiff, the County of Los Angeles, and the Mayor of the City of Glendale, California.

Dr. George Patterson received his Ph.D. from the University of Southern California, and Masters Degrees from the International Graduate School of University of Stockholm, Sweden and California State University, Northridge. His B.A. is from the University of Illinois.  He received specialized training and is certified in clinical hypnosis, neural linguistic programming, the Spear-Raiter Systemic Family Intervention process, and Arise Intervention Training.

While continuing his work in these areas, Dr. Patterson's current focus has been profoundly influenced and greatly enhanced by his work and training in what is now known as the Three Principles (formerly health realization models). Using the innate mental health of the individual, and working from the inside-out, a new, respectful and empowering model of psychotherapy and intrapersonal change has evolved. This model has been developed and refined in close partnership with his friend, colleague and author Joseph P. Bailey.

A member of his church choir, and an avid fly-fisherman, Dr. George is married and has three grown children.
