Hi there! My name is Pam Lemaster, and I’m a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in the state of Ohio. Chances are you’re reading this because you are looking for someone with similar beliefs as you who might be able to help you with some kind of life struggle. If so, I may be of service to you. First, it is important that you know I am a believer, with a firm foundation in Jesus Christ as my own personal savior. I grew up in the church and was surrounded by loving family members who modeled Christ-likeness as best they could. My mother is a United Methodist pastor, and I followed her lead by attending a theological seminary to obtain a solid understanding of my faith. It was then that I received the call to become a mental health counselor.
Second, you may be struggling with the idea of seeking help through other means rather than trusting the Lord to pull you through. The struggle is real, and there are few other things that are worse than feeling you are going against God’s instruction. Rest assured, you are not alone. However, I wholeheartedly believe that I have answered the call to shine the light of Jesus when so many people find themselves surrounded by darkness. My focus on Christ keeps me on God’s course to hear that daily call so others can have the courage to keep running the race in life and not be consumed by the darkness.
I have several years of experience helping a variety of people improve their mental health. My current full-time position is an adult counselor at a community mental health center in a small city in North Central Ohio. I also work as a Crisis Health Officer at the local hospital and jail, assessing risk of harm to self or others. Additionally, I facilitate a grief support group that meets once a month for people who are grieving the death of a loved one through suicide. I have a client-centered approach and utilize evidence-based methods such as cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy, family systems, narrative therapy and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) therapy.
I hope this intro finds you feeling hopeful that there can be light in the midst of darkness. I would be honored to walk with you on this journey to find hope. I may be just the lantern holder that you need.
