About Me

It is not abnormal to feel helpless or overwhelmed by your life experiences. And although change can at times cause as much anxiety as dealing with these life issues, there is a point where it becomes necessary to change the path you are on. Here, I feel a professional therapist’s job is to empathetically and objectively listen, observe and work with the client to set a realistic and appropriate treatment plan.

Together, we will evaluate…

What your primary concern is.
What your goals for treatment are.
How to accomplish your goals.

My name is Pamela and my passion is also my vocation—helping people cope and overcome obstacles in life through counseling. As a retired Senior Chief Petty Officer in the US Navy I have helped peers, subordinates and even superiors obtain self-awareness, resolve issues and problems, identify patterns and find the peace in their lives with the everyday stresses that would inevitably arise in the high stress environment of a diverse and stressful military workplace. I bring this and culturally attuned, individually tailored evidence-based psychotherapy to assist clients with PTSD, depression, anxiety, adjustment and psychosocial stressors.

I am a graduate of Capella University where I received a master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling. Completed a post-master's certificate in Advanced Clinical Practice from New York University and also obtained my Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) and Certified Grief Counseling Specialist (CGCS) certifications. I have practiced in residential and community settings as well as private practice, telehealth and court-mandated counseling with domestic violence survivors and perpetrators.

I am a Licensed Professional Counseling (LPC), a National Certified Counselor (NCC), a Certified Grief Counseling Specialist (CGCS) and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) who specializes in helping people with a wide range of concerns and diagnoses including developmental disabilities, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, anger management, domestic violence, PTSD, and self-esteem building.

I am looking forward to working with you. Please take the time to reach out to me!

Pam is a fantastic therapist, and working with her since 2020 has helped me gain more self-awareness, more acceptance and grace, more patience and more love towards myself. Pam was always so understanding of my needs, even when it was difficult for me to express them clearly. She reminded me that the experiences I have with anxiety are not uncommon, and that I wasn't alone in my struggle. She helped me through a mentally/emotionally difficult time in my life, and I'm so glad she was there to help guide me. I have learned so much about myself, and have teencounseling.comed a part of myself that I had lost awareness of for a time. With Pam's help, I have grown into a stronger, healthier woman, and I'm so grateful to her. I continue to implement all that she taught me outside of our sessions, and I know that if I ever needed a guiding hand again, Pam would be there for me.

I started seeing Pam in the height of the pandemic. She did what I think we all want from a therapist, which is to help you help yourself. I have grown so much as an individual this past year and Pam has given me tools that will last me a lifetime. Pam is kind, patient, easy to talk to, and open minded. I am eternally grateful for our time together and would recommend her practice to anyone and everyone!

I feel very grateful that I was matched with a counselor of such high caliber who guided me in a way that was both tangible and easy to understand.

Pam has helped me through one of the toughest times I had faced. She’s very supportive and professional and genuinely cares about her clients. Definitely would recommend her service

Written by N.A. on Oct 06, 2020 after therapy with Pamela for 2 weeks on issues concerning family conflicts, and parenting issues

Pamela Kulisek has been fantastic with me. Right from the beginning she let me know what her approach was to help her clients. She listened to me as I told her what my issues / concerns where. In this short time she has offered great insightful wisdom and guidance. I already referenced a friend of mine to her. You would be in good hands if Pam was your counselor.
