Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Pam Sweeney, another New-Age Marin psychotherapist? Actually, I'm a down-to-earth therapist with experience in helping people who are coping with depression, anxiety and relationship crises. I use the therapeutic method which is most appropriate and comfortable for each situation. On one hand, I may take a somewhat cognitive behavioral approach in dealing with some kinds of problems,such as depression and anxiety. On the other hand, specific techniques such as EMDR or art therapy may be most helpful to my client in expressing and working through the issues that bring him/her into therapy. In addition to working with children, I collaborate with parents about parenting (both double and single-types), divorce, child development and temperament; consulting with other professionals as needed. I am especially interested in working with children who are shy, or have been labeled socially phobic. My office is centrally located in San Rafael, and I can offer both day and evening hours. I am currently forming a small, supportive therapy group for men who are struggling with depression and work issues. Please call for an interview : 415-455-5468 (sliding scale available)

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Temecula, CA

I’ve been in private practice in Temecula since 1990. I work with individuals, couples and families on a variety of issues, using a straight-forward approach to problem solving. While I listen with empathy, I am an “active” therapist, meaning I make suggestions, give direction and homework to partner with my clients so they can solve their problems in a timely, effective manner.
