Clinical Social Worker

Pam Roberts

Pam Roberts completed her Masters in Clinical Social Work in 2002 from the University of Calgary.  She brings a respectful and collaborative approach and is committed to providing people with a positive and effective therapy experience in both individual and couples therapy.


Pam is trained in a variety of therapies including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy.

Pam sees people (ages 20 and older) for individual therapy for a variety of clinical issues including:  anxiety and mood disorders, grief and loss, trauma, partner relationship issues, family relationship issues, self-confidence, coping with stress and life transitions.


Pam has a keen interest and expertise in couples counselling.  Pam is the first and only Certified Gottman Therapist in Atlantic Canada which is the highest level of training in the Gottman Method.  Pam is also a “7 Principles for Making Marriage Work” Leader.

The Gottman Method of couples counselling is an evidence-based couples therapy based on 40 years of Dr. John Gottman’s ongoing research.  The Gottman Institute was created by Drs. John and Julie Gottman and applies leading-edge research on marriage to practical down-to-earth therapy, and trains therapists committed to helping couples.  No other approach to understanding why couples succeed or fail has relied on such intensive, detailed and long-term scientific study.

Pam sees couples at all stages of a relationship including:

  • couples who want to make sure they have the tools they need before they commit
  • couples who want to improve their friendship and how they are managing conflict
  • couples who are wondering if they should stay together
  • couple who are trying to recovery from a betrayal or affair

Coming in the fall of 2024, Pam will be offering the 7 Principles for Making Marriage Work workshops which is the first time this marriage seminar will be offered in Atlantic Canada.  It has been offered across Canada and the US and has been attended by tens of thousands of couples.  Details will be posted on our website soon!
