Dr. Pamela Bratton

About Me

I am a Florida Licensed Psychologist and I work with adults and mature teens. I use a variety of therapeutic modalities, providing a warm supportive environment where treatment is customized to best suit each individual. Sessions are collaborative and based on a fundamental respect for each client’s unique circumstances, talents, and goals.
During my long career I have helped people who are dealing with a wide variety of concerns including family and relationship difficulties, workplace issues, depression, anxiety, loneliness, stress, and much more. If you find yourself feeling overwhelmed and needing assistance in sorting things out; or maybe you’re looking for a sounding board – someone to listen and offer feedback; or if you’re on a journey of self-discovery and personal growth, I would be very happy to provide the assistance you are looking for to go from where you find yourself to where you want to be.

Written by N.A. on Oct 01, 2019 after counseling with Pamela for 3 days on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, parenting issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

I am still receiving Dr Bratton's counseling. She is a very compassionate psychologist who knows how to put words to my distressed feelings. Her expertise with stress and trauma is making me realize how much I have been coping with and the impact on my emotional and mental well being. I am still on a journey towards healing when I get safely to the other side and having Dr Bratton as my counsellor is the happiest thing I have at the moment in my life as her understanding of my feelings , mental state, pain and trauma is in itself helping me with my healing journey. I will not change her for anyone else! I am so happy that I have found her.

Written by S.H. on May 30, 2019 after counseling with Pamela for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

Dr Pam Bratton is a most excellent counselor. She is very supportive and helps me to sort through my issues with her guidance by helping me to focus on what's good and best for me. She is helping me to change my life from feeling depressed and withdrawn and feeling emotionally/mentally abused, to a better mindset of focusing on myself, doing things for myself that i want and love to do that are good for me, and helping me to be stronger to stand up for myself and set my boundaries from family members who are emotionally and psychologically abusing me. She is a very experienced counselor and I highly recommend her to everyone! She is a great friend to have!

Written by T.A. on May 07, 2019 after counseling with Pamela for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and bipolar disorder

As a first time user of BetterHelp, the thought of being paired with a therapist that I would not have a direct line of contact with was somewhat intimidating. As the process continued, however, I found that Dr. Bratton made it a point to have a space that was open and caring which made me feel more comfortable participating and being vulnerable in our sessions. I wish I would have found BetterHelp sooner.

Very pleased with Dr. Britton. She is a consummate professional, especially compared to first couple “therapists” I was paired with. Her advice is sound, logical and works for me. Also, she is non-judgmental.
