Pamela Goucher

(LCSW)

About Me

Hello! My name is Pam Goucher. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in both Arkansas and Tennessee with over 30 years of experience working as a clinical therapist. I have experience in behavioral health and medical social work, so I have an understanding of the impact medical issues can have on someone's life. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, bipolar, trauma, parenting and relationship issues. I have also worked with individuals who have experienced alcoholism/addictions. I am familiar with the 12-steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. I am most comfortable with a Christian approach, but I am accepting of and have worked with various religious beliefs and lifestyles including LGBTQ. I come from a military background as my father was a Vietnam vet and my son has completed 5 tours of duty in Iraq/Afghanistan. I am also a grandparent raising a grandchild. So as you can see, I am a fairly experienced, well- rounded person. I understand that sometimes life just happens and we need help making sense of it all!

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I am open minded and accepting of others. I will not judge you or present as biased. My therapy style is eclectic, as I use whatever your unique and specific needs call for. I do tend to lean more towards cognitive-behavioral therapy though as I believe every situation provokes a thought--a thought a feeling-- which in turn produces an attitude or behavior. I also like to explore your family of origin issues as those early family dynamics do tend to influence who we are today.

I always start by reassuring my clients that they aren't crazy or weird...what you're feeling is normal for what you are experiencing right now. Anyone in your shoes would most likely be feeling the same way. It's okay and you're okay! We can figure it out together:)

I look forward to working with you!

Mrs. Pamela is God sent from heaven. In my mind Mrs. Pamela cares about anyone she counsels now. She has really helped me in the short time I been under her care. Mrs. Pamela has given me some great advice in order I don’t allow past experiences to eat me alive. I got to continue sharing so this experience will finally help me heal some dark secrets. I really appreciate her knowledge and understanding of the 50 plus years of abuse.

Pamela is awesome! I was really going through a hard time and felt like there was no way out (of course that was my anxiety talking). She helped to explain things, slowly and clearly, and it has made me feel like I am more than just a number to someone. She really helped me to begin to regain control when I was spinning out.

I absolutely adore Pamela! We just had our second session. She is easy to talk to, very nonjudgmental, and it helps to have someone other than my friends or family to speak to!!

Best choice I’ve made.

Written by Z.I. on Apr 02, 2020 after counseling with Pamela for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and compassion fatigue

Through the two sessions I have had with Ms. Goucher, I have come to find that I am supported in the fight of my depression. It has helped me considerably as we all enter this time of crisis in the United States. I have been known to absorb tension in my family and a lot of this problem has increased my anxiety and my depression. Ms. Goucher has listened to me through all of it and I am in a much better place because of it.

I have been working with her for a few weeks now and I always feel validated and supported. She’s calm and understanding. I don’t feel like a client when I’m talking to her. She makes me feel like a human being. She is incredible and I highly recommend her for anyone looking for support and guidance.

She’s a wonderful person and pushes me to get better but also helps me through it. If I’m ever going through something she’s there for me in a timely manner and I’m so glad I found her.
