Prior to meeting Pamela Goffman I was desperately seeking a psychotherapist who could help me with my deep depression and feelings of emptiness and loneliness. For a period of five years I counseled with four different therapists to seek peace in my life. My life was a mess during my five year search, I had hit rock bottom. It had to be divine intervention that lead me to Pamela Goffman. While the four previous therapists talked me through my immediate issue(s), Pamela quickly identified the core of my pain and we began our journey together. Pamela's therapy techniques in psychodrama have turned my life around. Her psychodrama skills enabled me to experience my past in the here and now. The experiential format of psychodrama enabled me to break through my denial to experience feelings that I had buried for far too long. Pamela's teaching techniques assisted me in rediscovering myself. Pamela is exuberant in sharing her wisdom. She is committed to her profession and her teachings bring a whole new meaning to living. While always displaying the highest levels of integrity and professionalism, Pamela also displays genuine concern and love.

I have had the privilege of working with Pamela Goffman, LCSW over the past two years in the treatment of my Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and addiction recovery. As a medical professional myself, I greatly appreciate Pamela's professional but compassionate atmosphere. Pamela tailors my plan of care specifically to my individual needs as they arise and works with me on a level that I can easily comprehend. She has incorporated my family into my therapy to help them better understand my illness and their role in my recovery. Not only is Pamela warm and caring but also readily available when I have been in crisis, either by phone or by appointment. Through both individual psychotherapy and group psychodrama Pamela has assisted me tremendously in begining taking back my life.
