Pamela received her Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling in 2014 at Indiana University Purdue University Columbus, and is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC). She has received much of her clinical training working with those diagnosed with I/DD and dual diagnoses. Pamela has planned and organized groups for those diagnosed with I/DD, and teaching DBT skills adapted for those who are diagnosed with Autism or I/DD. During graduate school she researched Bereavement and death for those diagnosed with I/DD, planning and creating a group for those who had experienced death and loss. Pamela went on to apply interventions she learned with the various clients she works with as a behavior consultant and therapist to help support them in the process of grief, loss and transitions – presenting this work with a co-worker at two conferences. She was later trained on a trauma intervention called PC Counting, adapting this intervention for those diagnosed with Autism and I/DD presenting the technique at the NADD national conference. Pamela adapts interventions (e.g., CBT, DBT, play) based on the client’s need, working with children, their families and adults.
