Pam Kranyak, MA, LPC

Staff Psychotherapist


Pam's Approach

Pam works to create both a supportive and collaborative atmosphere to foster patient growth.  She understands that the journey toward greater insight is non-linear, taking its own timeline and shape.  Telling our stories takes time and can be challenging, and Pam strives to encourage patients through each step of the journey.


Pam believes curiosity is an asset.  She believes that each person contains multitudes--that we are complex and intricate, often many things at once.  Pam works with patients to develop both insight and self-compassion into these different parts of the self. 

Because of this, Pam uses a systems-based approach in order to understand more about how patients interact with various factors in their lives, such as family, work, and life history.  She values patients’ intersecting identities, knowing that each is a layer in their life experiences that informs how they see the world.

Pam’s Focus Areas:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • LGBTQIA+ Identity

  • Life and Role Transitions

  • Family Conflict

  • Relationship Issues

  • Somatic Symptoms

  • Grief and Loss
