Patty Rocklage is a marriage and family therapist based in Sudbury, Massachusetts, a suburb of Boston in the Metro-West area. She graduated with her master’s degree in Family Therapy from the University of Southern California in 1981. Her husband, Dr. Scott Rocklage, is a managing partner at a venture capital firm and an avid philanthropist.
Patty and Scott, who is a research chemist by training and MIT graduate, recently made a generous donation to Scott’s alma mater. Thanks to Patty Rocklage contribution, the college was able to improve its nano-chemistry lab. Scott, who earned his PhD under the tutelage of MIT legend Richard Schrock, thanked the university for preparing him for his future success at a reception held in the couple’s honor in 2016.
In addition to the pair’s commitment to social causes, Patty is passionate about her professional calling. She believes that every family has wounds that need to be healed and is humbled that she can make a small difference in people’s lives each and every day.
Being a therapist is not an easy way to make a living. Whether through her work helping individuals and families with their struggles, or through the philanthropic efforts she shares with Scott, Patty Rocklage is committed to helping others. The devoted therapist has been in practice for over 20 years and shows no signs of slowing down. On the contrary, she hopes to continue to grow as a professional and make a positive impact in the lives of even more people.
