about pam

Hello, I'm Pam Shaffer, a licensed MFT practicing in Los Angeles (License #91321). I offer therapy for residents of California and creative consulting and coaching for clients anywhere in the world. My specialities include depression, anxiety, ADHD, relationship issues, life changes and challenges. I am a poly, kink, and LGBTQ+ affirmative therapist and I am sensitive to cultural issues.

I work from a strength based perspective and use an eclectic style that may include cognitive behavior therapy, solution focused work and narrative therapy.
