Hi, I'm Pam! As an EMDR-certified therapist, I find fulfillment in helping people heal from anxiety, panic attacks, depression, and trauma.

Therapist in Illinois


About My Clients

Are you struggling with anxiety or having panic attacks? Do you notice tightness in your chest or have difficulty breathing in certain situations? Are you feeling overwhelmed when dealing with life’s challenges? You have the ability to find peace and acceptance, and regain control of life’s ups and downs. EMDR is a specialized therapy that can help you feel less anxious and depressed, heal your traumas, and understand yourself on a deeper level.

My Background and Approach

I’m not just a talk therapist. I use techniques beyond traditional talk therapy to tap into the parts of you that aren't always accessible through words. I am a certified Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist, and I incorporate aspects of mindfulness and parts work into my practice. EMDR is an effective therapy to treat trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, OCD, grief, attachment issues, as well as other distressful life experiences.

Why We are a Good Fit for You

As a certified EMDR therapist, I truly believe in the power of this therapy. I incorporate parts work into my practice, helping clients understand why they're stuck, and I work with them to tune into their own wise intuition. To learn more about EMDR or my therapy style, please take a look at my website ( or feel free or contact me for a free 15 minute consultation.
