Pamela Huckaby

(MSW, LCSW)

About Me

My experience as a bilingual case manager, counselor, crisis worker (Designated Mental Health Provider – DMHP), group facilitator, psychotherapist with a strong background of treating trauma, treating severe and persistent mental illness, and as a diagnostician have prepared me well for providing compassionate and effective mental health services. I have 5 years’ experience as a mental health therapist. Previous to graduate school, I worked for approximately 10 years as a case manager in mental health, Head Start, and for a domestic violence shelter. I also interned with Child Protective Services and Hospice before starting my work as a therapist. Most recently I’ve been working for the Family Advocacy Program, as a contracting social worker with the U.S. Air Force in Okinawa, Japan. So, I am also experienced in working with military families.

I have worked with all age groups - individuals and families. I am very experienced in helping to heal from and prevent domestic violence. I work with couples to help them recognize and overcome abuse - if relevant, and work on healing relationships through improved communication and knowing one's partner. I draw from the concepts taught by The Gottman Institute, and "The Five Love Languages".

My partner and I have very much enjoyed working with Pamela. She was very accommodating with our schedule and went above and beyond in offering us both couple and individual sessions, tailoring her approach to both of us individually. We would highly recommend working with Pamela!
