Pamela Tinkham has spent 18 years in the mental health field with a focus on the treatment of anxiety, OCD, and mood disorders. After completing her master’s degree in social work from Fordham University, she pursued extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, EMDR, and Yoga Therapy. Pamela is the author of Healing Trauma from the Inside Out: Practices from the East and West, which has become an established resource for providers seeking to integrate a mind-body therapeutic approach into their clinical practice.
As a “scholar-practitioner” in the model of service and professional development, Pamela had been an Adjunct Professor at Fordham University teaching classes in Social Work Skills and Advanced Clinical Assessment and Diagnosis. Pamela has also developed curriculum around “spirituality in the practice of social work,” and “the promotion of health, wellness, and self-care for practitioners."
Pamela has direct experience with the limiting and at times, disabling force of anxiety. Running for her life to gain safety, Pamela was present when the Twin Towers imploded on 9/11, where the direct and vicarious trauma and subsequent anxiety that ensued for her, became the catalyst behind her life mission - to help others heal from trauma, and transcend the grip of anxiety integrating therapeutic and spiritual methods.
