Welcome to The Broken and Beautiful!
I offer affordable, expert coaching services in Lincoln, Nebraska and online. I am a Storywork and Enneagram Coach, and I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing. Additionally, I offer detailed, professional Enneagram typing interviews.
I am passionate about doing this work because I know how much my life has been changed by experienced, safe people who invested in my growth and wellbeing. My life has been impacted for the better by their kindness, curiosity, and gentleness as they helped me get back to me!
My life's passion has become offering back what so graciously has been given to me.
I’ve been married to my husband for 30 years. Together, we have two amazing adult kids who we love beyond words.
I’m also a proud owner of two pound puppies who each bring their own brand of special to our family: Lexi Lou, and Dashell Robert. We thought we were rescuing them, but I'll tell you a little secret... they rescued us!

"Patria has a unique gift of bringing kindness, curiosity, and truth to a space. She creates safety to explore hard topics and invited me gently into fragile places in my story. She sat with me as I navigated the shadows and helped to shine gentle light to the corners. With her help, I was able to look at difficult scenes, engage my pain, and begin to heal. If you are looking for a wise guide to help you navigate the path of your heart, I highly recommend Patria." - Julie
"There aren't many who are willing to sit with broken people in their pain....to be present and to skillfully listen with compassion. She gives time and space to hurting people...not rushing them along but joining them in the journey as she points them to Jesus...the One who sees..hears..understands and helps...Thank you Patria....for being present...unhurried...and skillful. For journeying with me in the hard buried places...for pointing me to Jesus and reminding me of His pursuing love...." - Connie
