Pamela Mallette, MA, LCPC
As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, I work primarily with adults and adolescents struggling with depression, anxiety, and/or abuse histories. Much of my post-graduate training has focused on understanding and treating trauma, with special emphasis on the differences between normal memory and traumatic memory. I have a particular interest in working with adult women with memories or suspicions of childhood sexual abuse.
I believe that the best counseling centers around trust: trust in the therapist, and trust in yourself. As your therapist, I foster trust by offering a compassionate environment in which you are unconditionally supported and feel safe to explore your current life and your history without fear of judgment. My style is warm and down-to-earth, and I am truly interested in getting to know you.
As therapeutic trust is established, you are then free to explore the relationship you have with yourself. Along that journey, most people find that there are a number of inner wounds that have gone untreated. They also find that there are many different parts of themselves: some that have developed creative strategies to shield them from pain, and others that have helped them to function in the world. We will get to know those parts, as well as discover the resources within yourself to heal the wounds.
Ultimately, this process allows you to trust yourself. When you live a life free of inner turmoil, other relationships (with partners, children, friends, etc.) begin to thrive as well. Such peacefulness empowers you to remain grounded, even when life tries to toss you about.
