Pamela Downey is a Florida Licensed Mental Health Counselor, EMDRIA Approved Consultant, and Certified EMDR Therapist in private practice in Pensacola since 2014. Currently, she primarily works with adults experiencing a myriad of life challenges including developmental trauma, addiction, depression, anxiety, and PTSD as well as clients who are considering transitions of life goals and seeking to optimize self understanding, meaning, and purpose in their life. She also enjoys teaching and facilitating groups with a wellness-based addiction recovery center on Pensacola Beach, Gulf Breeze Recovery, since their opening in 2013.
Pamela gained her initial EMDR training through the Humanitarian Assistance Program while she was providing pro-bono services for veterans in transitional housing programs. She has also recently become a volunteer with a local Trauma Recovery Network providing pro-bono consultation for a network of volunteer EMDR therapists. Earlier in her career, Pamela enjoyed working with an elementary school guidance counseling program where she assisted in testing for gifted and other special programs, interventions for children who struggled with behavioral issues in the classroom, and facilitated educational groups for children having difficulty with parental separation.
Pamela joined EMDR Consulting in 2015 with a passion for its mission in building strong local EMDR communities. She holds great appreciation for the opportunity to get to know and work with other therapists.
