About Me

I am the founder and owner of PBMJ Consultants and Associates, L.L.C. located in Baltimore, Maryland and established in 2012. As a licensed clinician and board-certified supervisor; I believe a cognitive behavioral approach to therapy along with the use of wholistic supportive techniques will help clients become more aware of the impact challenges of life have on thoughts and behavior.
I completed my BS, MS and post graduate studies at Johns Hopkins University; and I am a public speaker and facilitator who cares and is willing to share how to attain a better way of life. I have traveled and trained nationally and internationally with a combination of over 20 years of professional, academic and personal experiences. During my years as a licensed practitioner and clinical supervisor, I counseled thousands of clients and trained hundreds of individuals in the counseling profession.
As a mental health provider I offer the following services: grief counseling, anger management, stress management; conflict resolution; gambling and substance dependence counseling; professional seminars and workshops.
I have counseled people from all walks of life and believe true healing begins – in spirit, mind and body - when change is made and a wholistic approach to life is experienced.

Written by F.R. on Dec 16, 2021 after therapy with Pamela for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

Pamela is an incredible therapist and person. Every time I talk to her, I leave feeling more at peace and understood. She is nonjudgmental, compassionate, and caring.
She seems to truly care about my well-being but is also able to be real with me, which I really appreciate.

I also trust she knows exactly what she's doing-- she has expertise in so many areas and is very knowledgable and intelligent.

I leave sessions with unique insight that has truly helped me gain perspective in so many areas of my life. I feel very lucky to have been matched with her as my counselor.

Ms. Pamela Byrd,
Has a very approachable spirit that makes it easy to express your true feeling and she very attentive and her caring spirit really makes you feel that you can finally rest and be free of your thoughts. I have given her name to a couple of my friends and family member to request her if they decide to sign up for Betterhelp.
