Gray Matters

                                   ...for when life is not black & white

                             Pamela Balentine, Ph.D.



“My philosophical & theoretical approach includes the primary responsibility of respecting your integrity.  All counseling and hypnotherapy approaches used by me are based on a belief that each client is unique and their background provides him or her with a personal array of experiences, skills and abilities.  I view my role as one of facilitating the development of your individual skills in order to achieve the realistic, relevant and personally meaningful goals you choose.  I respect and encourage your personal pattern of interests and abilities in developing your own integration of personal beliefs concerning dimensions of the body, mind and spirit.”
