Pamela Epps, PhD, Psychologist in Decatur
Sometimes, we can get messages that we can't change ourselves or our lives, that we aren't worthy of healing, that we should not hold on to hope. I believe that during those times, it is so important to seek support. In therapy, you can find a place to explore the challenges you are facing and can receive support as we work together to come up with new strategies. I enjoy helping clients find healing, hope, and wholeness in the face of difficult experiences, particularly those related to race and culture, identity, family problems, self-esteem, and spirituality.
I specialize in working with adults, college/graduate students, and older adolescents who are dealing with depression, anxiety, traumatic events, discrimination, or challenging relationships. I have experience working with a wide range of cultural backgrounds. My approach to therapy integrates a number of models, including Interpersonal and Cognitive Behavioral theories.
I utilize empirically-supported strategies; however, I know that each person comes with their own strengths, challenges and perspectives, so no one approach fits everyone. I value the personal and creative aspects of therapy, and I believe that growth, healing and change take place in a caring and supportive relationship.
