About Pam (she/her/hers)
My name is Pam, and I am a Licensed Associate Counselor. My main approach to healing is Individual Psychology, but I also will incorporate concepts from person-centered therapy, existentialism, narrative therapy, and CBT/REBT. If you wish to research more about these approaches or want to ask me about any of them, feel free to do so!
I believe that we as humans are each unique and are on a lifetime journey of self-improvement and desire meaning and connection in our lives. I look at the whole person, and I will not define anybody by a diagnosis. I will only discuss a diagnosis if I feel it will benefit the therapeutic process, or you believe it will enhance your quality of life. Overall, I am hopeful through this approach one can be reeducated and become aware about their deeply imbedded belief systems or lifestyle patterns that may be keeping them from striving forward to reach their goals and living a meaningful life.
I have worked with adults struggling with addiction and an array of co-occurring mental health disorders for two and a half years now. This includes concerns like anxiety, depression, mood swings, anger, trauma, bereavement, relationship struggles, self-esteem issues, and more.
I, as the counselor have the main job to be an encouraging guide in allowing you to see what potentially faulty life patterns, feelings of discouragement, and misperceptions of life may be holding you back from making the changes you desire and accomplishing the goals you wish. I am excited to be starting this process and journey together.
My self-care includes; running, biking, walking my dog, spending quality time with family/friends.
