Hello and welcome! I want to applaud you for initiating the process of employing assistance for whatever is currently presenting a challenge for you at this time in your life. Life is full of challenges and we all need someone to come along side and help us during those times of challenge.
Hi, my name is Pamella B. Divinity and I am a LPC. I earned a Master of Counselor Education degree with a focus in Marriage, Couples and Family Counseling in July 2015. I realized early in my life that people were naturally drawn to me—family, friends, and strangers alike entrusted me with their most sacred personal dilemmas because the felt comfortable and safe. I attribute this to possessing a genuine heart to help others. Interestingly, it never crossed my mind to consider counseling as a career choice and thereby took a different path. In April of 2011, I found myself at a ‘crossroads’ and needed to make a decision about what was next. During that process, I realized that my desire to help empower others would inspire me to return to school. It was at this time I realized that being in the helping profession was not just something I was considering as a career choice, it was part of my “calling.”
For 7 years, I have worked in a variety of settings with specialized groups which included college students, women only ages 18 and above, youth ages 11-17, and the general public servicing individuals and families (youth 5-21 and adults 21 & older). My interests include working with clients to address mental health issues that relate to individuals, as well as, relational and family of origin issues. These mental health issues include but are not limited to parent-child issues, spousal conflict, family conflict, anger management, depression, anxiety, stress management, suicidal ideation, abuse, trauma, grief/loss and crisis intervention. Additionally, I have also counseled from a ministry perspective for over twenty-four years and am able to integrate both the spiritual and professional aspect of counseling when desired by the client.
As a therapist, I employ an eclectic therapy approach to ensure interventions are tailored to each client’s needs. I possess a desire to help individuals and families be strengthened and empowered to navigate life’s challenges successfully, ultimately emerging to be their best selves. I believe that the therapist-client relationship should focus on client strengths which can in be used as the basis for collaboration to develop and implement a plan of action based on an established Plan of Care (POC). I am dedicated to assisting my clients to achieve their maximum level of independent functioning throughout the therapeutic experience. In order to achieve this I believe two vital elements are essential-- first, the establishment of a strong therapist-client that is based on trust, safety, and transparency, and secondly, the need for you as the client to possess a desire and motivation for change. To that end, I would count it an honor and a privilege to partner with you!

Mrs. Pamella is a very awesome listener and understands what I’m going threw and does a great job of getting me threw difficult times.
Pamella is THE BEST! I've had bad or even just unmemorable experiences with therapy before so I was hesitant to try it again but I'm so glad I did. Pamella is kind, patient, understanding, intuitive, and extremely helpful. She is an amazing listener and provides insight I haven't heard before. She is willing to meet with me however and whenever is most convenient for me, and has gotten me through one of the toughest moments in my life. I really appreciate how she tailors each session to my mood and what I need to talk about and how she's the perfect mix of empathetic and tough. She gives advice like a sister or friend, but authoritatively, and you know she knows her stuff. I am forever grateful, and look forward to our weekly sessions. I cannot recommend her enough.
This is a wonderful counselor. She is so knowledgeable, patient and effective. I highly recommend this counselor.
Pamella has been amazing. I've never met someone who's gone through similar circumstances. She understands, which makes all the difference.
I have not been doing counseling for very long but before I started many of my friends told me how difficult it was for them to find a good counselor with a similar background to them. From our first session she has put me at ease, listened and guided me to help me find out where I want and need to be. I am glad that she is here offering her services. I would recommend her to anyone. I’m fact, I already have.
Pamella is a darling. She's sweet, kind, but has the necessary ferocity to fight you when you're absolutely wrong. She's strong, and really fights for me I feel.
Ms. Pam is an Angel! She is knowledgeable and knows how to communicate in a way that makes me the bigger picture. I would definitely recommend her...welllllll maybe not be I don’t want to share lol. Awesome is an understatement!
Pamella has been amazing and a God send. I love how much she cares about me as a client and is willing to hear things from my point of view. She also takes time to encourage me around my specific struggles offering me suggestions backed by scripture, science, and care. Thanks Pamella!!
Pamella is very balanced and smart and got to understand me very quickly.
