Dr. Pamela Baker Powell

Pastoral Counselor


Meet Dr. Powell. . .

My professional life’s work has been caring, helping and teaching people of all ages. Working with people who want to make their lives better is my greatest satisfaction.

People come for counseling for a variety of reasons. Some are in a life passage of great distress. Some are in a relationship crisis with a family member or just need some guidance in relationship building and mending. Others are looking for pre-marital counseling or seek life coaching as they are wondering what the next step is for them in their lives. And still other come seeking spiritual direction.

Everyone needs a listening ear, helpful therapeutic insight, prayer and encouragement in tough times, and every adult at certain points of their life would benefit from a sorting out of priorities and goals for the next season of life.

Whatever brings you to consider counseling, let me invite you to come for a visit and experience our hospitality.  I will be glad to meet with you and to show you around the Center. You will find these are comfortable, safe and discreet surroundings, conducive to productive conversation. We can sit and chat for 15-20 minutes to get acquainted and help you sort out whether the Center is the right place for you.

“Working with people who want to make their lives better is my greatest satisfaction.”
