Therapist / Counselor Pamela Bakel, MA, LPC
Sabrina Anderson, LPC (Gainesville Office)
“I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Virginia and have been working with children, adolescents and young adults for the past 10 years. I have a passion to work with individuals from different backgrounds who are in need of support and guidance. Life can be challenging and it is beneficial to have someone to listen and provide ways to explore your thoughts and feelings.
In practice, I typically utilize a strength based framework to provide psychoeducation, mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Trauma-Focused CBT and solution focused treatment. I’ve worked in different capacities to provide mental health services such as the school system, home setting, group home, residential and local jail. It is my goal to provide a warm, safe, judgement-free, therapeutic space. No matter what obstacles you may face, there is room for change; it is all about your perspective.
By recognizing your strengths and underlying causes to depression, anxiety, stress, criminal behavior, grief, low self-esteem, substance abuse and trauma, you can heal with time. One of my core principles is to empower and invoke insight to understand these areas better.”
