Pam Rogers, MA, LPC (9453)
Whether you are in intense crisis or an average healthy individual, the knowledge that comes from understanding the nature of our mind can improve your everyday functioning. Awareness of how the mind processes and forms linkages in the brain can improve how we think, how we feel, and how we act.
We cannot control our thoughts, we cannot control other people, and we cannot control what has happened to us in the past. The only thing that we can control is our choices. Where we purposely place our attention can interrupt the linkages automatically processing in our mind. Change occurs when the mind generates new ways of thinking that are no longer biased and distorted.
We should all be given the opportunity to make the choice to investigate one's core belief in action. Core belief represents our most fundamental thinking about the world we live in. The existence of a higher power, the meaning of life and death, and the nature of our reality are all views that can be confirmed or challenged within the therapeutic process.
LICENSE, EDUCATION, and EXPERIENCE
I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor for 31 years following eighteen years of undergraduate and graduate work at the University of Houston (UH). My education includes a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from UH, UH Master’s program in Sociology, UH Master’s program in Educational Psychology, and pursual at UH of a PhD in Counseling Psychology. My focus on evidence-based therapy was a product of the early years of my career when I provided utilization review for Exxon employees identifying the scientific effectiveness of therapeutic practices. As Director of the Phobia and Anxiety Center at West Oaks Hospital, my focus was to achieve the most expedient outcome at the most reasonable cost. This was a research-driven approach that, over the years, has resulted in a 25% to 50% reduction in the therapeutic process.
