I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in New York State and have provided mental health counseling for 32 years to people of all ages. I worked as a school counselor for the past 32 years at the Kenton UFSD, a suburban school district just north of Buffalo, NY. I also provide family and couples counseling at the KenTon Family Support Center.
Many people feel stuck at times but do not know how to make changes to allow them to enjoy their lives to the fullest. My approach to counseling incorporates a few styles of therapy to help clients clarify goals, understand their own behaviors and self-talk, and take charge of their future. Clinical areas of treatment include anxiety, depression, ADHD, relationships, stress management, conflict resolution, work and career issues, grief & loss, and anger management. I strongly believe in the dignity and worth of people and am dedicated to helping people find a productive healthy path.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, Relationship issues, Trauma and abuse, Anger management, Career difficulties, Depression, Coping with life changes, ADHD, Abandonment, Blended Family Issues, Body Image, Codependency, Commitment Issues, Communication Problems, Domestic Violence, Emptiness, Family of Origin Issues, Family Problems, Impulsivity, Isolation / Loneliness, Self-Love, Social Anxiety and Phobia, Workplace Issues
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Internal Family Systems

Pamela is such a great listener and always makes me feel better after a session. I tend to send her messages when we're not in a session and she always messages me back in a timely manner. I always look forward to our scheduled sessions when we have appointments. I would recommend her to anyone.

Pam really knows how to dive deep in her questions rather than surface level everything. She is very nice and easy to get along with. I have never felt more comfortable talking to a therapist.
