My internship embodied working with adolescents with substance abuse and dual disordersin a residential program. As a counselor, I seek to raise awareness and guide my clients to improvetheir mental health by being present unconditionally to improve processes, communications, and behaviors that exist within individuals and families.  My clinical approach involves the use of an integrative approach by using Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness Therapy.

Pamela S. Goldsmit

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

I was born and raised in Central Florida. I completed my undergraduate studies in Psychology at the University of Florida. After graduating with my B.S., I enrolled in a graduate counseling training program at UF. I completed two years in the program before realizing it wasn't meeting my needs. One summer, while traveling across the country, I “accidentally” discovered an amazing and unique program in Boulder, Colorado. Naropa University offered a contemplative, Buddhist-inspired counseling program. I excitedly applied because it seemed to offer exactly what I was seeking in a counseling program: the perfect balance between experiential and theoretical study. It merged spirituality and psychology through methods such as meditation, Gestalt awareness, psychodynamic approaches, and client-centered therapy.

At Naropa, I was challenged to explore my inner world while learning how to use myself as a tool to help others. I also learned about the power of knowing one's own mind. I was able to learn the art of therapy while developing a personal style that has been very effective with my clients. This personal style incorporates mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, existential psychology, transpersonal psychology, Gestalt, play therapy, art therapy and other techniques to help my clients gain the self awareness necessary for change to occur.
