Trauma leaves us feeling broken, damaged, and disconnected from our true selves. You may be fed up with feeling triggered in everyday situations, being disconnected from yourself and your emotions, and find you cannot remember significant chunks of your life. You may not even remember a time you didn’t feel like this. Either way, one thing is for sure: you’re ready for some relief. You’re ready to enjoy a day in which the memories of pain can be remembered without being emotionally and physically triggered by them. You’re ready to wake up each morning with purpose. Most of all, you’re ready to love yourself again.

Through my work at a rehabilitation hospital, I have gained experience working with the medically ill, those caring for family members with an illness and the bereaved.
In searching for a psychotherapist, it is likely that you have a specific problem in mind. When these problems intensify or linger for long periods of time, they can lead to symptoms of anxiety and/or depression which interfere with your quality of life and sense of well-being. If you are seeking help in overcoming these difficulties, there are two important factors to consider when choosing a therapist. First, it is important that, after a few visits with the therapist, you feel that there is potential to form a strong working alliance.

Some of these skills include effective communication, mindfulness, relaxation, and changing negative thought patterns.

A behavioral approach is well suited to clients with chronic medical conditions, such as pain , headaches, diabetes, heart failure, and cancer, as well as episodic problems, such as insomnia.
As a health psychologist, I work with clients who have physical and emotional conditions that are getting in the way of being able to live the lives they want. I help clients identify and follow through on changes they can make to improve their well-being. I use a behavioral approach supplemented with biofeedback and hypnosis. I also work with couples who are struggling to find ways to get closer together and feel like they are truly partners in their relationship. The key to my approach is to find effective ways to get what you want from your life.

A special area of interest is chronic pain and proactive pain management.
The therapeutic dialogue is a unique collaboration in which exploration and growth can occur while addressing difficult issues around relationships and life. I work with clients to navigate challenges and explore the parts of themselves that have held them back or limited their ability to make satisfying decisions. Each person coming to therapy is in a different place with different needs. I meet them at that place and work with them to move forward and find healing. My goal is to approach clients with compassionate understanding.

Those with ADHD, Anxiety, Asthma, Chronic Pain , High Blood Pressure, Migraines, Stress, Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, Performance Anxiety, Post Concussive Syndrome, Post Traumatic and Tension Headaches.
Biofeedback training is an evidence-based, short-term, mind-body therapy in which clients learn to control physical responses to stress that are often involuntary and can feel uncontrollable. During a session with Dr. Pabst, she will utilize biofeedback sensors to scientifically track in-session breath patterns, muscle tension, perspiration, and heart-rate so you can receive visual and/or auditory feedback on your physical responses. As a result, you can see your innate stress responses in real-time, learn what triggers them and ultimately have the ability to self-regulate.

**Please email for faster response*** I believe therapy is a both a process and space centered on accompaniment. In music, accompaniment refers to the parts of a composition that support the main component of the piece. Likewise, my job as a therapist is to accompany and support you on your own journey. ​Whether this is coping with symptoms of a mental illness , managing stressors in your life, or processing and healing from trauma - I believe most people come to therapy because they are looking for support, skills, and knowledge to allow them live more connected and purposeful lives regardless of their circumstances.

I work primarily with adults facing chronic, life-limiting, or potentially life-threatening conditions, such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, or AIDS. I focus on helping clients find successful ways to cope with illness , and to integrate the experience of illness into their life story and world view. This often involves discussions of faith and spirituality. I work with patients where they are, so if there is underlying mental illness or intellectual disability, I may work with it instead of trying to change it, unless, of course, the client wants to change. I feel fortunate to have found this specialty.
