Hello, my name is Patricia “Patti” O’Connor. I am an adoptive mother of three and very passionate about my work with clients who are also hoping to form their family by adoption. I have a BSW from SUNY Brockport and a MSW from SUNY Stony Brook. I am a NYS Licensed Master Social Worker with 19 years of experience in the adoption field. I am the New York Licensing representative for the Adoption Alliance and currently provide pre and post adoption services to adoptive families. I also work works as an Investigator/Consultant for the Nassau County Surrogate’s Court. In the past, I have worked with birth mothers in the post-partum hospital setting and foster children in residential treatment.
