My name is Pamela Carr, and I am originally from Ohio, but moved to Atlanta to be closer to family. I have always been interested in helping others, so I decided to help others for a living. I earned a BS in Employee Assisted Counseling and Human Resources Management from Franklin University and a Master’s in Education from Capital University and in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Walden University.
I am currently pursuing my Doctoral Degree in Community Care and Counseling with specialty in Trauma from Liberty University. I have now practiced in the field of Psychology for almost 7 years, and stay current with new techniques and procedures through ongoing continued education.
My experience includes working as an intern in Ohio and Georgia. I have worked as a counselor for Family Recovery in Gainesville , Lawrenceville, and Monroe, GA. I have worked as a Behavioral Health Counselor for Viewpoint Health, Mobile Assessment Coordinator for Riverwoods Behavioral Health Systems, and as Team Lead with LGBTQ population in Atlanta.
I am a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor II (CADC II) where I help those struggling with addiction through psychoeducational individual and group counseling. I am also a Medication Assistance Treatment Specialist (MATS) and I have been assisting opioid addicted individuals through monitoring Physician prescribed medication with a person-centered individual or group therapy.
I provide various techniques for managing stress, anxiety, depression, anger, abuse, and addictions and follow the Rogerian theory based on:
Optimistic view of humanity
Every individual has value
Unconditional positive regard
