About me

I have been working as a behavioral health therapist for over 20 years. I have extensive experience in both mental health an addictions counseling. I have a master's degree from Gannon University in Counseling Psychology. I work in a person centered manner allowing the client to direct their therapy and work on the issues that they find the most pressing along with helping them to see potential pitfalls and areas of concern. Clients I work with are better able to get their life on track and feel more fulfilled and at peace with themselves.

I have been with Pamela McGarry for over two years. The time together has been invaluable for my state of mind, as well as helping me navigate rather large decisions in my life. As a woman professional in recovery, I highly recommend anyone to work with her.. Five stars

Pamela is wonderful. I felt comfortable with her immediately. She validates and helps me work through what I’m going through patiently. It’s nice to have someone who believes in my artist endeavors and realizes the difficulties that come with the path. Highly recommend ❤️

In our first session I was able to be confident I will never do that behavior again. She’s gets to the problem quickly.
