Generosity and Care: Patty Rocklage

Patty Rocklage embodies Marian Wright Edelman’s famous quote: “You really can change the world if you care enough.” As a licensed and experienced psychotherapist, not only does Patty Rocklage place great emphasis on maintaining her client’s confidentiality, but she goes above and beyond to make her clients feel cared for and comfortable. Her style is known as warm and inviting and her actions outside of her office are no different. Patty believes in community, giving back, and volunteerism.

A resident of Sudbury, Massachusetts, Patty Rocklage obtained her degree in Psychology from the University of Southern California in the early 1980s and has been practicing psychotherapy for over 20 years in the greater Boston area and is licensed in the state of Massachusetts. While her focus is on individuals, couples, and families going through tough times, she not only helps them bravely face these challenges, but she is also highly sought after for team-building engagements, teaching and coaching, and public speaking.

Partnering with her husband, an accomplished chemist, Scott Rocklage, Ph.D., the couple provided a major gift to Scott’s alma mater – Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s chemistry department. The financial donation will help the world-famous institution renovate its nantechnology and nanochemistry labs.

Patty’s sense of community goes beyond volunteerism. While she donates a generous amount of time to the Sudanese Education fund, a non-profit organization that helps immigrants from Southern Sudan obtain stable and gainful employment and educational opportunities, she also supports local businesses. Patty and Scott worked with the Sudbury Construction Company on their major home renovation. Not only did this help their local community, but this small business helped the Rocklage family optimize resources and energy-savings. Patty Rocklage on Twitter.
