Rev. Patty Furino
Minister - Spiritual Counseling

Rev. Patty Furino chooses to walk a sacred path using the wisdom that she gained from a variety of spiritual practices and philosophies.  The goal of her ministry work is to empower others to discover and develop their own unique life paths.  She tries to inspire a peaceful perspective for people during their challenging times, by bearing witness to their stories. Patty believes that “In our lives, there are opportunities for us to look back on our story and decide who we are”.

Patty has been a student of many different perspectives designed to help others learn to walk in awareness, such as: Near Death Experiences; Energy Exchange; Native American Spirituality; Animals Medicine; Reiki; and the Quantum Mechanics of Healing. She has trained and volunteered with the American Red Cross, Bideawee, and Suffolk Independent Living Organization.  Through her past affiliation with the Suffolk County Disability Advisory Board, she had an opportunity to help veterans find peace with their military experience.. Through her volunteer and service affiliations, she has left a lasting impact on those whose lives she touched.

Her story is unique and has been filled with many challenges along the way.  During her early teens, she developed major ear problems that resulted in surgery during December of 1977.  During her hospital stay she had an experience that changed her perspective of life and death.  She never shared the details of her out of body experience until she met her husband.  He was the first person with whom she felt safe enough to share her truth.  It was his acceptance and unconditional love that gave her the security to find peace with her gifts.  As a result, she made a commitment to use her connection to the Great Beyond only in ways that brought honor to the gift.

From as far back as she can remember she has always had conversations with her "wise friends on the other side." It was the private relationship she had with her Spirit Guides that helped her stay positive and optimistic amidst the drama, isolation and chaos in her childhood home and, in the process, embrace the highest level of thought.

She attended the New Seminary in New York City and was ordained an Interfaith Minister, June 1998, at St. John the Divine Cathedral.  She was inspired by the founder, Rabbi Joseph Gelberman and his philosophy to learn other faiths "never instead of, always in addition to."
When she was ordained a Minister, she made a vow to walk the path with honor and integrity choosing to follow the motto of St. Francis, "Make me an Instrument of Peace." 

Patty is currently employed at Angela’s House in Long Island providing crisis intervention, bereavement support and educations to parents who have experienced the death of a child. As the Angel of Hope coordinator, she has created individualized remembrance ceremonies at the Angel of Hope statue. She has authored numerous celebration of life ceremonies for individuals, pets and groups in her area. Patty has also been a guest lecturer for several undergraduate classes at both Utica College and the Pratt School of Art.

Patty was a guest on the internet television show, Exploring Your Emotions, with Dr. Judith Rosenburg, in 2015.

Patty has the gift to see people where they stand on the crossroad in their lives.  It has been said she is like a chameleon, changing her appearance and demeanor with each situation.  Spending time with her, most people feel they have found a lifelong friend.  She has found great satisfaction inspiring others during their challenging times. She believes she is brought into people's lives through Divine Intervention and views her life as a Sacred Journey.

What people are saying:

If anyone is looking to take their spiritually to the next level, Patty will definitely guide you through. She gave me the tools needed for my journey but always allowed me to make my own choices and was there just as a gentle nudge to look at something differently but never told me to go right or left. Patty has extensive experience in all areas and will be able to guide you through your journey every step of the way as needed.

Love and Light Always

When I first met Pat I was walking in a park struggling with my addiction to alchohol and keeping it a secret. I felt empty inside, no peace, scattered, alone, afraid, and not in control. The second time I met Pat, I found out she was a minister and also possessed a special gift of insight and non-judgmental. I finally told her I’m an Alcoholic, and in recovery, and in early sobriety. Coupled with my fellowship, Patty has walked beside me as a Spiritual director, a best friend, a surrogate wife, building my faith, as well as, a relationship with higher power and myself. Patty has walked beside me through many chapters in my life as I have rediscovered my purpose, and to be the man God created me to be, a man of honor, respect and decency.

In short Patty has been a guide, inspiration, and she’s authentic. She is an enlightened being with many Spiritual tools. She is an Angel in disguise.
