Postpartum anxiety, depression, and birth trauma leaves us feeling broken, crazy, and like bad parents. You're tired of feeling like you're barely holding it together. Maybe you're a first time mom who can't sleep when your baby's asleep because something terrible will happen. Maybe you've been pregnant before and didn't realize how much that experience impacted you until you couldn't enjoy your next pregnancy. Either way, you're ready for relief. You're ready to feel more connected to yourself and your family. You're ready to be the kind of parent you've always wanted to be.

Hi there, I'm Pam. I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CAADC). My journey in the human services field began over 13 years ago, and it's been an incredibly rewarding path. My career has taken me through various roles - from working in corrections and helping youth in foster care to mental health and substance abuse counseling. I earned my Bachelor's in Family Life Education and my Master's in Counseling from Spring Arbor University. But the real learning came from the life I've lived and the challenges I've faced.

Why do we seek out therapy? There's plenty of reasons such as depression, anxiety, marital/relationship issues, bullying, anger, identity concerns and the list can go on. There are plenty of issues we can continue to pull out if we really try but the overall goal is to process, identify and improve our quality of life. I know seeking out therapy can be difficult especially when you're given the task to talk to a complete stranger about your "problems" but sometimes it's a better fit once a relationship is built. Talking with your therapist gives you more time to spend with family or friends without sadness, anger or indifference.

Whatever brings you to therapy just know you are not alone on this journey. It takes courage to reach out and I am honored to be on this path of healing with you. To me, finding the right therapist is all about the fit.

Depression and anxiety can take a toll on our lives. They can rob us of joy and make it difficult to participate in life. Constant worry and dread are common companions of anxiety. It feels like you are caught in a loop of thoughts. You don’t know how to get out, and it is hard to breathe. Worries and fears hold you captive. You have lost friends, opportunities and maybe even jobs because you couldn’t find your way through. You feel out of control, but you often keep your feelings hidden. You might put on a smile to please others, but happiness only exists on the surface. If you can relate, take a deep breath. There is hope.

I have an extensive history with youth programing and clinical practice with youth. I've spent the last few years working with adults, families, and children who have severe emotional disturbances. I currently work with youth who are adjudicated as well as youth who just might be going through your typical transitions. I have years of crisis experience with adults and youth. One couldn't work with young people without working alongside their parents or guardians also. Therefore, my ideal client is any adult, youth, or teen who is transitioning through life or any person who may be trying to figure some things out along their path.

How can I find a therapist in Saginaw County?

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
