Professional statement

Pamela Goffman is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), a Trainer, Educator and Practitioner in Psychodrama (TEP), and a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist (CIRT). She holds licenses in Pennsylvania and Florida. She is a seasoned clinician and trainer, and brings over 25 years of experience and expertise to her practice, which is currently 100% via Telehealth. Clients typically engage Pamela’s services for relationship help, anxiety, depression, and making sense out of their lives. Pamela has achieved the highest level of certification by the American Board of Examiners in Psychodrama, Sociometry and Group Psychotherapy. She runs a weekly clinical Psychodrama group, and is a frequent presenter at clinical conferences both nationally and internationally.

Pamela works psychodynamically and experientially. As an experiential therapist, Pamela integrates action methods including Psychodrama and art. In her work with couples, she uses the Imago approach to teach couples how to communicate more deeply so they can move from conflict to connection. Uniting these approaches empowers couples to address earlier wounding, and allows them to reach deeper understanding of each other so they can co-heal. Pamela’s spontaneity and creativity adds a unique spin on the Imago approach.

Weekly Psychodrama group is by invitation. Psychodrama is a method for exploring our social world, our inner world and our spiritual world. We accomplish this all through enactments where we take roles and reverse roles. The theory is that we grow when we have more roles available to us. Participants gain tremendous insight, support and growth from this group.

Pamela is known for her warmth, humor and lucidity.


Message to clients

Welcome! When you join my practice you will be taking a courageous look to see how early unconscious wounds and the beliefs they engendered have tripped you up and kept you stuck in your life. I am passionate about helping you figure this out and find ways to change those beliefs that no longer serve you, and achieve real healing.

Clients may come to me for individual therapy, couple’s therapy, or family therapy. You would typically begin with one or more sessions a week and may step down over time. If appropriate, group therapy may be offered. It isn’t uncommon for clients who present for individual treatment to do some family sessions or move to couple’s work or vice versa.

Before our first session, you will be instructed to fill out some simple intake forms and return them electronically. We will meet on my HIPPA compliant zoom account and you will receive my invitation with link the morning of your session. All transactions are online and payment is via Zelle or Venmo. Our first sessions will include your history and reason(s) for seeking therapy at this time. Together we will set goals for your treatment. I look forward to helping you on your journey of healing and growth!
