About Pam Bass Counseling
MSW, LCSW, LIMHP
Hey, I’m Pam. I have a Masters degree in Social Work from the State University of New York at Albany. I’m a Licensed Independent Mental Health Practitioner and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Nebraska.
Family and faith are very important to me. I’ve lived in Omaha, NE for nearly three decades now with my family. I’ve been marred for over 30 years and have two wonderful sons.
I’m passionate about helping people and couples be the best versions of themselves. With over 30 years of experience in helping people I know I can help you get back to life you want to live.
In 2019 I received my certificate in Spiritual Direction Ministry from the Benedictine Peace Center in Yankton, S.D.
