About Me

Hi there and welcome! I know it can be difficult to initially ask for help; thus, I applaud you in doing so!

I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Ohio, a Licensed Professional Counselor in Arizona, as well as a National Certified Counselor. I received my Master's Degree in Counseling from Franciscan University of Steubenville, in addition to a certificate in Christian counseling. I have had years of experience, successfully working with clients facing anxiety, depression, anger, trauma, poor self-esteem, family problems, marital issues, and a variety of other concerns.

As a therapist, I take a Client-Centered approach with existential and holistic influences. In viewing counseling as a collaborative process, I have the perspective that you are an expert on yourself. Your opinions, motivational factors, and life experiences are valuable to me and will certainly enhance our time together. Additionally, I implement techniques from , Motivational Interviewing, Logos Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Humanistic Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Psychodynamic Therapy to assist in the healing process. As I get to know you, I will use therapeutic approaches, tools, and techniques that seem the most fitting for each unique and particular need that is brought up. I see my role as one to empathically come along side you, without judgment, to assist in exploring ways to overcome the challenges you are facing.

I often tell my clients that I see them as some of the most courageous individuals because it takes a lot to step out and ask for help. When you are ready to start the counseling journey, know that I am eagerly awaiting to encourage and walk along side you in this healing process! I look forward to meeting you!!

Written by E.R. on Jan 18, 2018 after counseling with Pamela for 1 year on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, sleeping, and self esteem

I've been working with Pam for a year on deep, multi-layer trauma, PTSD, and other forms of triggered anxiety which has impaired my ability to function within the societal norm. I've made some good progress and have been able to apply new tools to situations and work through many highly stressful situations. I haven't been episodic in quite a while and symptoms are decreasing. Pam is the best counselor I've ever encountered and I have seen quite a few in great effort to work through the traumas. I highly recommend her to anyone needing to work on PTSD symptoms, work trough trauma, gain awareness for dealing with assertiveness, self-esteem, and for learning new tools.

Pamela is very intelligent and EXTREMELY insightful. I wish I had been working with her sooner as she has helped me to make great progress!

Pam encourages you and challenges you both at the same time. Highly recommend her!

When I started counseling it was something I didn't want to do it at all. I told that to Pamela and throughout our sessions she made me more comfortable and I started to feel more like a friend who understands and who can help. She is an amazing person and counselor and I would recommend her to anyone.

Very kind and considerate. Feels as if she truly cares about what ails me and wants to help me resolve it.

Written by N.I on Jan 03, 2017 after counseling with Pamela for 2 months

This is my first time getting counseling and it has helped. I'm going through a lot and she has helped me see better. I was skeptical at first but it has really helped me and continues to do so. She is not pushy or judgmental, and doesn't take my words and spin them. She listens and just lets me vent whenever I need to. It helps.

So far my experience with Pamela has been excellent she is a great listener and didn't waste much time at all identifying what we should focus on. I am very excited about working with her and becoming my best self.
