Pam Cleary, LICSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Minneapolis
I have 20+ years of working with pregnant & postpartum women struggling with mood issues, as well as people transitioning to different life stages, dealing with Anxiety, Depression, and adjustments to chronic illness and family identity changes. I have experience with infertility & pregnancy loss counseling & identity issues surrounding alternative family building. Much of the work I do in therapy is about loss - tangible or intangible - and how that affects one's sense of self. I work with my patient to form a realistic plan for improving their life situation that brings about improvement in their symptoms quickly.
I fully believe that in each of us is a gift that we bring to life for other's to appreciate and honor. But we must appreciate and honor ourselves first. My goal is to help clients see their gifts and appreciate them fully even in the midst of darkness.
I am a bilingual Spanish/English practitioner and have been providing services to the Spanish speaking community for 20+ years. I have a unique understanding of the cultural components involved in immigration and assimilation. I am very aware of the legal processes involved in immigration and can assist with hardship petitions and U Visa applications..
