Dr. Pamela Thompson is a Psychologist, Professional Life Coach, and Owner of Building Bridges to Better Lives who has provided mental health services for individuals, couples, women’s groups, and inmates since 1996. She is also the author of Surviving Mama (an adult daughter’s guide to overcoming strained mother-daughter relationships), a book which earned her a therapeutic role in a film recently featured in the 2016 Atlanta Jewish Film Festival entitled “Look At Us Now, Mother.” Dr. Thompson is an inspirational speaker who is a frequent presenter at community forums and workshops. She is most proud to be a member of the network of providers associated with the nationally syndicated radio show “New Life Live” which has guided her ability to integrate her clinical skills and knowledge with a biblical worldview for those who desire such. Her greatest passions include serving as a vessel for healing the wounded and brokenhearted as well as an illuminator of others’ hidden gifts and talents. She enjoys debunking the myth that psychology is just for “crazy people,” and she has been sought out by media outlets across the country to help her do that including Discovery Fit and Health, Sesame Street, and the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN).
Dr. Thompson is a native Atlantan educated at the University of Georgia in journalism/public relations and the Georgia School of Professional Psychology where she earned her doctorate in clinical psychology.
