Patty Ford, LMFT and Mental Health Youth Services Division Manager, served the County for over 20 years before retiring this month.


Behavioral Health is celebrating one of their amazing managers upon her well-earned retirement from the County. Patty Ford has been an outstanding leader in our organization since 1996. 

Patty has been the Division Manager for our Youth Mental Health Services for the past several years and instrumental in implementing the children's continuum of care, and building remarkable partnerships with the Dept of Social Services, Probation, schools, and community based organizations. 

Patty is a well-respected therapist, and brought a tremendous level of compassion and integrity to a wide variety of programs. Patty is a terrific mentor and led a driven and dedicated staff. Children from birth to five, school-age, adolescents, teens, young adults, and their families have benefited greatly from Patty's vision.

We wish her a great retirement filled with adventure, travel, and hopefully lots of her great laugh!
