Pam provides a safe, confidential, and accepting space where you can tell your story.

Pam works with adults experiencing anxiety, depression, grief, low self-esteem, phase of life and relationship issues, addiction and recovery, trauma, and illness.
Pam's approach is collaborative, holistic, and evidence based. She draws on Internal Family Systems, Interpersonal Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Enhancement, Mindfulness approaches, and healthy living habits. Pam works to be culturally responsive, LGBTQ+ affirming and social justice oriented.
