About me

I am an independent consultant and counselor with more than 35 years of experience in health care, counseling and coaching. I obtained my Master’s in Social Work, specializing in Interpersonal Practice, from the University of Michigan in 1983. Throughout my career I’ve worked with thousands of individuals dealing with wide ranging concerns including health and stress related problems, crisis management, anxiety, depression, grief, anger issues, relationship and family problems, work related and career challenges. I consider my work with individuals to be a great privilege and I take pride in the ability to help people to feel very comfortable, and to feel supported no matter what concerns they may be struggling with at the time. I am very solution oriented and practical in my approach, recognizing that for many people, short-term counseling is all that is necessary. Sometimes we just need someone on the outside of our situation to help us look at things from different angles so that we can identify all possible solutions and/or opportunities. Despite my many years of experience, I know that people are unique individuals and I take nothing in the work I do for granted. Doing my very best for each individual I work with is critical to me.
Thank you for your consideration and please contact me if you believe I can be of assistance.

Written on Feb 21, 2024 after therapy with Pamela "Pam" for 1 year and 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, and career difficulties

Pam is kind, thoughtful and insightful and gives thought provoking feedback that helps at the root of thinking to help. I have only been seeing her for a few weeks but it's already made a huge impact in my life.

Pam is excellent at finding true points in issues despite there being chaos in the mind of the patient presenting the issue. She is personable and makes me feel very at ease right off the bat. She came up with great solutions to my concerns to trial and listens to how the process worked for me that week.

Pam has been the absolute best therapist I could have ever asked for. Her insight, advice, and perspective have helped me identify what is causing me distress in my life and ways to change it. Every session has been productive and I walk away with strategies to improve my life and relationships. She looks at problems in a very rational way and provides concrete steps to work through those problems. Pam is also incredibly professional and I never felt judged or nervous to bring up any topic. Working with Pam was one of the best decisions I’ve made.
