Pamela Collins

Pamela Collins is a Licensed Resident in Counseling at Fountain of Hope Counseling Center. She earned her Master of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Capella University in 2021. She has over 13 years of experience in the field of Substance Abuse Counseling. She is in the process of collecting clinical hours towards independent licensure as an LPC.

Pamela specializes in substance use disorder, couples therapy, low self-esteem, anger, anxiety, and depression. Her clinical approach is grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, focusing primarily on unhealthy thinking, unhelpful behaviors, and developing coping skills.

Pamela believes Therapy should be a safe space for her clients to not only experience freedom, but also, overcome difficulties, and achieve their goals.

Pamela’s passion stems from her upbringing in an underrepresented, lower middle-class community. Growing up, Pamela witnessed many individuals endure various life situations. While many appeared to be surviving, others struggled to thrive.

It is Pamela’s personal feat to champion for those who feel at risk of being looked over or left behind.
