Finding Peace of Mind with Licensed Therapist Pamela McCorkle

February 2020

Countryside Village RetirementAfter I received my master’s in neurobiology back in 1984, I came away with one profound insight: the human brain is the most powerful life force in all of nature, and it’s extremely important to respect that power and not get too bummed out when things might go awry. Just try to enjoy the ride.

Pamela McCorkle, a licensed mental health therapist in Grants Pass, operates under the same philosophy.

“I’ve been working in the helping field for over ten years, and my treatment philosophy is simple,” she said. “I believe we all have the capacity for change, and we all have strengths that can be utilized to assist in overcoming barriers that impact our ability to effectively navigate life’s challenges. It has always been my goal to use my training in clinical social work to provide those who I work with therapeutic support and guidance in order to enhance their overall well-being.”

At Pamela’s private therapy/counseling practice, services include individual counseling for a variety of mental health related concerns, including depression, bipolar disorders, life adjustment issues, anxiety, co-occurring disorders, as well as trauma, just to name a few.

Pamela is also there to lend a helping hand in dealing with life’s constant stresses.

“My goal is to help people facilitate their self-growth,” Pamela said. “If you are feeling overwhelmed by life’s demands, my services aim to introduce clarity and self-motivation. I also teach techniques to better manage the emotional stress of everyday life.”

A variety of treatment approaches are used, including cognitive behavioral therapy, strength-based perspectives, and solution focused interventions.

“Do you feel as if you’re always adding new tasks to your to-do list but never crossing anything out?” Pamela said. “My therapeutic approach will help guide and inspire you to achieve more of your personal and professional goals. Get in touch today and start taking control of your life with my counseling tools and strength-based techniques.”

Pamela grew up in the San Diego Area and received her master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Southern California. She relocated to the Rogue Valley over ten years ago from Northern California.

“I was looking to expand my educational and career opportunities,” Pamela said. “The Rogue Valley has offered me the chance to grow both professionally and personally, all while offering a small-town feel.”
