About Me

Hello, I’m Pamela. My writing skills are diverse and I have written for a variety of platforms both online and in print.  Being an experienced mental health professional with published pieces, I feel especially confident writing in the psychology genre.  I also have a special interest in writing about health and wellness, personal growth, spirituality, and creative arts. 

My daytime job consists of running therapeutic groups in a psychiatric hospital. I am a credentialed art therapist who is proud and fulfilled in helping others deal with their illness. I consider myself to be a creative thinker and artist.  I love writing and want to share this gift as well.
