She's the creator of the H.I.M.

Her private practice is located in two locations the heart of Coral Gables and Miami Beach. Additionally she works with various venues around the world to facilitate retreats and workshops worldwide.

Before devoting her life’s work to the empowerment of individuals and couples, Carolina’s path to growth came at a very personal level, individually and in her relationship.. Facing her own challenges and dysfunctional relationship patterns, she came to find a richer understanding of her purpose through her own healing and transformational work. Humbled by her own story, she’s passionately pursued a career helping men, women and couples find the change, acceptance, compassion and understanding in themselves, as well as in their relationships.

She began her studies at the University of Massachusetts and received her Master’s degree from Carlos Albizu University. Her incessant desire to learn and teach led her to gain additional certifications and work experiences with Dr. John and Dr. Julie Gottman, Dr. Stanislav Grof and Dr. Carol Clark.

Her work consist of assisting, supporting, teaching and guiding individuals to dive deep and work through the various challenges, struggles or areas of growth they've chosen to work on. Dr. Pataky believes both men and women still fall victim to the many limiting roles, scripts, schemas, erroneous beliefs, and toxic conditioning surrounding relationships and intimacy. As a result this has created barriers to one of life's richest gifts: The gift of intimacy. Intimacy is the ability to not only accept and love your inner most self unconditionally, but the capacity to then fully share oneself with another human being. Allowing oneself to be seen for whom they truly are. As mindfulness teacher Jack Kornfield said ”The things that matter most in our lives are not fantastic or grand. They are moments when we touch one another". She believes this is only possible when we allow ourselves to be seen in our truth, open-up and are able to be vulnerable. This takes work and this is the work Dr. Pataky assist her clients with.

As a relationship and intimacy therapist, she assist individuals and couples find alignment with their thoughts, emotions and spiritual bodies. Since she believes the quality of your relationships start with the relationship you have with yourself. When we start aligning our feelings, mind and spirit, our capacity for compassion and love expands and as a result, our relationships become extraordinary. This process also relieves individuals from anxiety, angst, depression, spiritual crisis, fears, anger, loneliness, being stuck in life and more. When we start healing ourselves, everything else follows.
