I have a professional history of assisting clients who are in recovery from incarceration, substance use, complex trauma (including socioeconomic and spiritual oppression), cis- and hetero-normativity, and causing harm. My cultural competence extends from alternative (BDSM, polyamory, occultist, etc.) to traditional (family-oriented, religious, etc.) lifestyles.

Therapy is, above all, a partnership. As your therapist, I create a space where you are heard, validated, and accepted as you are. Many of us have very few places in our lives where we can be our most authentic selves. It is through this level of trust and respect that true transformation and healing can occur. My style is collaborative, compassionate, and empowering. I will help you to see all your inherent strengths that depression, anxiety, or life stressors may be clouding your vision of. Through our therapeutic connection and evidence-based strategies, we can clear the lens and allow you to envision the path forward.

Hi and welcome! My name is Dr. Pam and I am a licensed clinical psychologist and supervisor. I am Board Certified in Biofeedback which means I underwent extensive training in learning how the body and the mind work together to impact the health and wellness of an individual. Through this training, I learned that my passion lies in helping patients learn about their bodies and minds in new ways to help nurture healing, especially in the case of chronic health diagnoses, insomnia, and anxiety disorders. I specialize in improving the quality of life of individuals with chronic pain, including chronic migraine and fibromyalgia.

I assist people who have tried traditional mental health treatments and need a little extra support and presence! My clients want to experience a life where they are better equips to handle situations or relationships where they are experiencing: shame, guilty, body dysmorphia, trauma, religious/ social conflicts, health restrictions, aging, sexual confusion or discomfort, stereotyping, misinformation, and mental health hurdles. Seeing beyond the mask is my “Super Power”. It helps me to meet people where they are so they feel seen, safe and supported.

I specialize in providing neurodiverse affirming therapy. What does this mean? It means that my therapeutic approach is to help you embrace your differences while still trying to navigate a neurotypical world. Usually the clients I see in my practice are adults who have trouble navigating life transitions and are usually on the spectrum of ADHD, Autism, OCD, Anxiety, and/or Depression. I don’t believe people necessarily fit in a neat little box that is labelled with a mental health diagnosis. I don’t believe that a diagnosis should be a means to an end for treatment. There’s no one size fits all treatment.

Things have been pretty rough lately for most of us. Isolation from lockdowns & social distancing may have you feeling off/ down or like you forgot how to interact with others to some degree. As the world starts trying to get back on its feet it may bring up a lot of anxiety. Maybe none of that is the issue for you but something just doesn't feel right and you're tired. Whatever you're experiencing you're not alone.

Children, teens, and adults alike can experience shifts in mood, no matter the circumstance. From depressed and anxious moods to trauma, the idea is usually the same...To be able to process the emotions that arise, and to be able to cope. Making the decision to enter therapy isn't always easy. Keeping this in mind, at ETE, I strive to build therapeutic relationships with my clients that are rooted in partnership. To do so, I offer a thorough needs assessment, and in sessions with clients, I may utilize a psychodynamic approach which is helpful as it can lead to a myriad of tools to effectively cope with life's stressors.

I understand how difficult, and even scary, choosing a therapist can be. You are looking for someone with who you can feel comfortable sharing some of the most uncomfortable aspects of your life. I will not judge you for your experiences or shortcomings. We all have work to do on ourselves at different points in our lives and some are more open and honest about this. The fact that you are looking for someone to work on your "issues" with, shows that you have strength. I would be honored to go on this self strengthening journey with you.

Over the past 37 years I have had much success in helping adults, teens and children deal with a wide range of emotional, psychological and behavioral problems. These include depression, anxiety, anger, and sexual difficulties. I have been especially helpful in treating people experiencing relationship problems, as well as helping people break through the barriers that hold them back in life. I believe with time, patience, perseverance and motivation psychotherapy can be an effective treatment for symptom reduction and personal growth.

What type of Staten Island mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Staten Island?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
