Holistic Psychotherapy Sessions
with Pam Chubbuck, PhD, LPC, LCSW
Pam is a psychotherapist in the ancient Greek meaning of the word therapeia – doing the work of God, or doing the work of the whole.
Best known for her skillful, direct, honest and energetic approach to therapy, Pam combines that with the universal healers: love & laughter.
“Working with people to assist on their life journey is my honor and pleasure. I am dedicated to helping people feel their life force, integrate body/emotions/mind/spirit, heal childhood wounds, feel joy and become whole.” ~ Pam Chubbuck, PhD
Pam’s ability to fully be in the present moment and her playful spirit keep her young-at-heart and able to authentically connect.
Pam sees the best in each person, creating the safety required to tell her anything, as she honors the sacred trust to assist rather than judge. Pam finds great pleasure in mentoring professionals – experienced psychotherapists as well as psychotherapy students. In addition to working with individuals, she also enjoys and excels at working with couples and groups. She is known to be highly intuitive and gifted with seeing energetic connections as well as sorting out and assisting with multi-level relational dynamics.
Pam well knows the importance of healing childhood wounds. All-too-unique in her abilities to supportively witness clients’ deep emotional pain, Pam also assists and empowers clients with tools to move through it and forward to take charge of their own transformation according to their own Higher Self wisdom, rather than fostering dependency.

“Pam, you have saved our marriage!” ~A couple headed for divorce after 28 years of marriage,
“Pam Chubbuck helped me see how feelings of anger, fear expressed through my saboteur – wanted to kill me and my relationship with my husband, following in the steps of my mother who hated men and taught me to expect the worst.”
“I needed Pam, to find out that 80% of my negative feelings toward my wife were really about old childhood wounds inflicted by my father and the church. This really changed me and our relationship for the better!”
“Glenn and I are both grateful every day for Pam and for Core Energetics, and how it’s allowed us to shape our relationship and our lives. I often say that the Universe sent me to Atlanta for two reasons: to meet Glenn, and to meet Pam/learn Core Energetics.” ~ K’La & Glenn Albertini
“Thanks for saving my marriage, Pam!”
“Couples therapy with Pam was just what we needed to get a good start on our marriage. Pam helped us to be more open and honest about deeper inner feelings, to break through the barriers of mask, and recognize things in our own personalities so that our relationship could be stronger.
We love Pam’s directness and clarity.
Pam was a miracle-worker.”
~ Tony & Deanna

“Today most academic programs are turning out therapists who are not required to have a day of personal therapy. This is deeply concerning, both for these individuals who are working at a deficit, and for their clients who need more than a theoretical approach. It is my pleasure to serve to bridge that gap.” ~Pam Chubbuck, PhD
Pam created the Say Yes to Life! DVD as a self-empowering tool with 2 one-hour psycho-spiritual exercise classes, based on the Core Energetic Evolutionary Process, which clients can utilize independently to take charge of their own healing process between sessions and for those unable to travel to work with her personally.

Pam’s Concepts of Mask, Lower Self, & Higher Self is a concise but brilliant tool which assists clients in learning to differentiate and work with their different “aspects”. It includes the Lower Self Saboteur, which Pam realized needed to be added to the Core Energetic and Pathwork framework, as we all have a Saboteur which relishes keeping us “down”. The more we see and work with the Saboteur, the less able it is to run our lives. Available in session/Intensive.
Clients Talk About Working With Pam:
“I have never before had a role model for a woman who so fully embodies both strength and love. Pam’s ability to bring the deepest and rawest emotion to the surface of awareness and to work with it to transform and heal is a profound gift. I have a greater courage to be more fully myself in the world having spent time with Pam, a woman with enormous vitality who exemplifies what it is like to live deeply in touch with one’s self.” ~ Kathy Lucy (LMFT, Atlanta)
“I love the introspective work of Core Energetics that incorporates The Pathwork to develop my Higher Self. Learning to safely work with my other aspects, too, has been life-changing: seeing and starting to transform my Lower Self and LS Saboteur, recognizing my defensive Masks, and healing my Wounded Child – wow! The framework makes sense of the internal (and external) conflicts I have struggled with, and provides such a helpful paradigm to work with. I used to just hide them in shame and confusion. Thank you, Pam!” ~ RA
“In the few months that I have been working with Pam, I have experienced more energy than I have had in years and a greater capacity for joy than I have ever known.” ~ PPG
“I have begun to feel my sexuality in a way that I never dreamed possible for myself. As an individual who thought that I would be in ‘conventional’ therapy forever, I am very grateful for the development and implementation of Core Energetics body-centered therapy.” ~ Lisa Larsen-Moss (engineer, BBSH graduate)
