Pam Coggins

Psychotherapist and Care Coordinator

Pam holds a Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Johnson State College. She believes strongly in meeting clients where they are at and in cultivating a collaborative approach to working with the concerns that they bring to therapy. Pam focuses on creating a safe environment in which to explore the underlying stories and patterns in our lives; this can help clients meet their concerns with the curiosity needed to address internal conflicts that may exist within them. She utilizes strength-based approaches to help individuals find personal meaning in relation to the world and other people around us.  

Pam specializes in working with anxiety, addiction, identity issues, and trauma. Her experiences working with clients in both holistic healing and social work models have strongly influenced her approach to mental health and healing. Her other influences include existential, family systems, and ecopsychology theories, as well as her personal yoga, meditation, and qi gong practices.
In addition to counseling, Pam rounds out her practice at VTCIT working as a care coordinator. This enriching role allows her to help clients gain greater access to the care they need, whether it is here at VTCIT or out in the community.
