Pamela Waitkus

(Ed.S., LPC, LMFT)

About Me

Thank you for stopping by and reading my profile. I have over 20 years experience in the counseling field and often say I am doing exactly what I am meant to be doing in helping others help themselves. I am open-minded, direct and use a firm and friendly approach with clients. It is your journey of self-discovery and betterment and Iam humbled to be apart if it.

I use an integrative therapy approach which means I brings together different elements of specific therapies. Cognitive-Behavioral, Solution Focused, and the Humanistic approaches just to mention a few.

As a solution-focused therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and to help you create a better life for yourself. While we can’t change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. In short, you are not your past. Through exploration, we will uncover long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

The Humanistic Integrative Approach recognizes that the quality of the therapeutic relationship, rather than any one particular theoretical orientation, is the most important aspect of successful therapeutic work. Thinking, sensing, feeling and intuiting are all given emphasis within the framework of the relationship.

Humanistic Integrative Counselling is an approach that systematically considers the whole person – mind, body and spirit.

Whether you are looking for support and guidance through a challenging situation or you’re just ready to move your life in a new direction, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.

Written by L.I. on Jan 15, 2018 after counseling with Pamela for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Working with Pamela has been enormously helpful. She seems to understand quickly what the root issue is and addresses it. I find typing everything out forces me to focus and think about what’s really important. Pamela is very quick in responding to me, as well, so I feel we’re working at a pace that I set and that I’m comfortable with. I highly recommend Pamela and this service.

Pamela has been a God send! The sheer amount of things she's helped me with in the past few days is astronomical. Pamela is always there when you need her! By far, she is the most amazing, kind, caring, non-judgemental and competent therapist I've ever worked with! Even with her busy schedule, she always takes the time to be there for you. I have recommended her to a few people, and will continue to do so. Thank you, Pamela, for everything!

I had and experience to receive friendly and very professional support from Pamela Waitkus. She has never put me down because of my poor life decisions . She just explained the way things works and supported me with good advice.

Pamela has been wonderful and very responsive. I appreciate her candor and look forward to hearing her thoughts to my responses. She provides thoughtful and thorough responses and seems to genuinely care.

Pamela has been so helpful. She is straightforward and supportive and really hears the subtext of what I'm saying, even when I don't realize it myself. I am grateful to have her help.

I'm so happy that I started using this service and that I was paired with Pamela. I had a therapist before (NOT through betterhelp) that, while she was nice, she never checked on me when I stopped my appointments. It made me feel like I was just a number and didn't make me feel like I could ever go back. That is definitely not the case with Pamela. She is someone that definitely would (and has!) checked in with me. Whenever I read her responses, I can tell that she read absolutely everything and took her time with a very thoughtful response. She is someone that I feel I can trust and she takes everything that she knows about me into consideration. I feel like I'm in great hands with her. Thank you, Pamela!

I have found my time with Pamela to be quite productive - more so than previous face-to-face therapy experiences I’ve had. She “listens” well and really seems to consider what you’re telling her before she renders any advice. I am very glad I decided to take this leap and try online counseling and very pleased that I was matched with Pamela.

I had been looking for a counselor for quite a while but my schedule is such that I can't commit to a certain time each week. This approach is perfect for me. I find that by writing to Pamela Waitkus, we can both see my challenges. I love that she can clarify what challenges I have and offer ways to break them down into bite-size pieces that enable me to make the changes I need to make to be a happier person. I would highly recommend Pamela to an adult who wants to unchain their past and live a fuller life today.

Pamela has been a godsend in a really uncertain and difficult time for me. She has been there when I need reassurance in the process I’m partaking in to change certain patterns of behavior. Her words of encouragement and support have been so helpful and she talks a lot of sense, and gives me very helpful ways on how to move forward and sea with my emotions. I feel very thankful that I was matched with her.
