This dual background allows me to weave expressive arts and traditional psychotherapy into an approach that speaks to healing both the mind and body.
I utilize a client-centered, strengths-based approach to create a safe and supportive environment in which people can use both mind and body as an integrated vehicle to navigate self-exploration, healing, and optimum health. I value the process of self-growth as it allows us the opportunity to live fully and access greater joy in our lives.

Have you found lately that there are many things competing for your attention? Maybe this has been going on for a while. Challenge, change, and distractions are normal but this can become a detriment to our health and well-being when we find ourselves burnt out, overly burdened, and unable to connect with the things in life that bring us joy. I will support you in re-connecting with your power, and provide you with many tools for relaxation, stress- reduction and building strength. I will uphold your interests and co-create with you the best possible individualized therapeutic and support experience possible.

Therapy shouldn’t be scary! I use play, filial, geek, sandtray, and expressive arts therapies so clients look forward to sessions.
As Mr. Rogers said, “Play is really the work of childhood." We all go through hard times where we need a little help, but when children need help they don’t always tell us with words. Instead they show us, with behavior, physical symptoms, anxiety, or struggling in school. When they do, I use play to identify the reasons for children’s symptoms and teach healthier ways to get their needs met. Therapy should be safe and nonjudgmental, so the Sanctuary model of trauma-informed care is at the heart of that. It helps support parents in understanding their children, by asking what happened to them rather than what is wrong with them.

Most times, children tend to take on the unhealed pain of the family. In that way, children act as the gateway for growth within the family system. In working with your child, I work with your entire family to address root causes of depression, anxiety and behavioral issues that you child is presenting with.

TESTIMONIAL. Prior to meeting Pamela Goffman I was desperately seeking a psychotherapist who could help me with my deep depression and feelings of emptiness and loneliness. For a period of five years I counseled with four different therapists to seek peace in my life. My life was a mess during my five year search, I had hit rock bottom. It had to be divine intervention that lead me to Pamela Goffman. While the four previous therapists talked me through my immediate issue(s), Pamela quickly identified the core of my pain and we began our journey of healing together.

We all have our own unique stories. Within them lie challenges and obstacles to work with. I liken it to each of us being in the middle of a tornado; in the middle, we can't see clearly everything that's zipping chaotically around us; we just know we're in the thick of it. Therapy helps us be able to step back from the tornado, so that we can see what's actually going on around us. If you are here, then you desire some type of shift in the way life has been operating with you. You might have a clear understanding of the blockage, or you may not yet. Wherever you are in your journey, we will meet where you are and move forward.

Three beliefs I hold that influence how I practice are 1) human beings are not problems to be solved 2) therapy is ultimately about relationship 3) the process itself is the solution. We humans are infinitely complex; we're full of opposition and paradox. Our culture pushes quick fixes and immediate answers, but lasting change rarely comes about when we work in this way. I'm interested in helping you come into fuller, richer, more conscious relationship with all of your moving and sometimes disparate parts. Together we will work from the inside out through a deep, relational process.
