About Pam Meyerson
We can all benefit from positive change!
Each of us faces obstacles and challenges in our life, and sometimes a little support can go a long way in helping us to successfully manage those difficulties. I offer a safe place for you to express your feelings, needs, concerns and problems. The idea of being in therapy has changed over the years. Traditionally, therapy was used as a treatment for “serious illnesses,” but today, people from all walks of life engage in therapy during normal times of stress and to work through relationship, work, anxiety, parenting and financial issues. Many of my clients had never been in therapy before and were initially hesitant about it. However after just a few sessions, these same clients began to experience positive, powerful and meaningful changes in their lives.
In working together, I can help you identify, explore and address the underlying issues that are causing you stress or pain. In sessions, I’ll encourage you to set and achieve thoughtful, actionable, attainable goals that can elicit positive changes in all aspects of your life. My sessions are goal-oriented and we’ll measure progress as you take steps to achieve your goals. If progress is not being made, I will help you determine why and adjust our sessions accordingly.
I specialize in couples therapy, relationship counseling, anxiety and stress treatment, ADHD treatment and addiction counseling. I believe in a collaborative and active approach to the therapy process, and I provide ongoing feedback during our sessions.
I have been a practicing therapist in the Chicagoland area for over 20 years. I hold a Masters Degree in Social Work and another Masters Degree in School Psychology from Loyola University in Chicago. I have maintained a full-time private practice for over 15 years. A majority of my referrals come from physicians. References from these physicians are available upon request. In addition to my professional experience, I am married with five children. I also have several clinical therapists available to see you if necessary.
