"Relief from Depression"

"When I first came to see Pam four months ago, I was desperate. I have had suicidal depressions since I was 15. In my mid-thirties I finally gave in and went on Prozac. I tried other medications before I finally participated in a depression study and was diagnosed Bi-polar. At that time I was put on two new medications with new side affects. A third medication was eventually added. The last two years I have lived in private misery. I tried to keep smiling for family and friends, but I went to bed every night praying I would die in my sleep. I spent last year seeing a psychoanalyst weekly with no positive results at all. I was truly willing to try anything (other than new prescriptions) when my sister-in-law recommended Pam.

From my first visit I felt better. Pam asked what I wanted to work on – there were so many things – but the most distressing for me was what she called “catastrophizing” where my mind would take off playing a whole horror film in my mind of something terrible happening to my children. From my first appointment I never had another incident of “catastrophizing”. We have continued to work on something new at each session with the same positive results. My medical doctor had said I could take as little of my medication as long as I could still get to sleep at night.. But every time I had tried to cut down in the past, I would immediately sink into a deep depression and would not be able to sleep at night because my mind would never quiet down. Now I am completely off all the meds. I haven’t had any depression and Pam taught me a “balance” to help me sleep and now I don’t even need that any more.

I feel like I have a new lease on life. My family, friends, and co-workers are amazed with the change in me. I have both of my children going to see Pam now and have recommended her to many of my friends regardless of whether their stresses are mental like mine or physical because I am learning that they both are wholly connected. When I made the decision to go to Pam I knew I would not just sit back and let Pam “fix me”, but I would give 100% to everything she asked me to do. The pay off in my life has been phenomenal.

The incredible thing about Pam is she doesn’t want to keep clients dependent on her. From the first visit she has been teaching me tools to heal myself. And I have been diligently participating in my own journey to wellness. I believe if I could no longer see Pam that I have learned enough from her that I could stay healthy on my own now. But she is such a wealth of knowledge and there is so much I still want to learn from her." ...Anonymous

"Working with Pam has changed my life. I used to wake up in the morning more tired than when I went to bed. My whole body hurt, I was depressed & I had given up hope of every getting better. After my 1st Session with Pam I felt better than I have in 10+ years. I have been working with her for a few months now & I am happier; I have more energy; I enjoy my job more & my marriage even seems to be happier." ...SR

"Before working with Pam, I was barely existing. I was so sad, lost, & stuck. I felt positive changes after the first session. My health is better. I am stronger. I have made changes that have been a long time coming. Maybe for the first time in my life, I know who I am. It feels great." ..........Pete R

"I have suffered with anxiety & depression for most of life. I have tried many types of counseling & medication with mediocre results at best. I have to admit when I was first referred to Pam, I was skeptical & at first I wasn't interested. But, then I heard about her from a few other people & they only had good things to say about her & the work that she does. I am now her biggest fan. She has changed my life. In fact, I feel that she has given me back my life. I don't even know how to put into words how good I feel. Of course, I still have challenges. But, now I can face them, work through them, & be free of them. I feel as if for the first time in my entire life that I am living a life that is worth living." .....TR
