Pamela Walker

(LMSW, LCSW)

About Me

I want my clients to live their best life. I want them to be whole spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically. That's why I obtained a Master's degree in Social Work and for 40 years studied and mastered the concepts of the mind-body connection. I have been a Master Social Work Professional for 30 years.

I believe nothing that happens to us occurs in a vacuum. What manifests in our lives resulted from sustained thought and emotion then became physical and behavioral. Resolve the thoughts and emotions, change the behavior. Teaming with and standing for my clients through the therapeutic process, we decide together where to start and where to end, marking milestones along the way.

To enhance the effectiveness of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I whole-heartedly endorse the use of the Emotional Freedom Technique, or Tapping. It is a simple, energy-balancing technique endorsed by the American Psychological Association. Tapping makes change easier. My clients rediscover humor, fun, inner strength, confidence and self worth. You ready?

Written by M.O. on Jan 18, 2020 after counseling with Pamela for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Pamela Walker has been treating me for OCD and related panic feelings. She is very experienced and surprisingly knows how to deal with the most complex situations that you don’t realistically expect ANYONE to be able to understand. She makes you feel safe talking to her. All I needed to do was clearly communicate how I’m feeling, tell her how fast or how slow I wanted to go, when I needed help to deal with symptoms and when I was ready to address the root cause of those symptoms. She taught me techniques to manage my symptoms, including a very effective tapping technique. I would wholeheartedly recommend Pamela Walker to anyone who needs a counselor.

Pamela Walker is an outstanding therapist and an extremely caring human being. She has helped me so much. I still struggle with anxiety that can be very debilitating some days, but she has taught me strategies that I am trying so use. I think I am at the admiration stage. I admire her so much, It is like a small child who looks up to her teacher. I am very blessed to have found BetterHelp and been given Pamela Walker as my counselor.

Pamela is VERY intuitive and this helped me have a tremendous breakthrough right from our very first session. She listens carefully and is compassionate. She always validates my perspective, which helps me feel heard and understood. She is also very good at helping become aware of my blind spots and things that I've missed in my own self-reflection. I definitely recommend working with her.

Counseling sessions with Pamela have helped me bounce back from the challenges I faced earlier this year. Thanks to her support and her skills, I have rebuilt my confidence and made important life decisions that have ultimately brought me to a happy point in my life.

I have been working with Pamela for 3 weeks now. She is a very kind, compassionate and knowledgeable therapist. She is easy to talk to and makes video chat seem almost like being right in the same room. Her advice and suggestions are helpful and I am growing to trust her, even in such a short time. She usually responds within 24 hours to messages and really takes the time to get to the root issues. I can tell Pamela cares and that she truly wants to help others by sharing parts of her own journey and by using multiple psychological strategies. I also appreciate the fact that Pamela recognizes how mind, body and spirit are all connected. She recommends many techniques and strategies to help with trauma, that will speed the process of recovery along. I highly recommend Pamela.
