Get Aquainted

Finding the right “fit” in a therapist is important. We are happy to answer questions that you may have about our qualifications and/or to make referrals to other resources if we can. There is no charge for an initial phone consultation.








Much of my career has been working with adults with addictions of various kinds, many of whom were mandated by a court or CPS to see me. Most of my clients cope additionally with intense emotional ups and downs, the unresolved effects of traumatic experiences, transition from prison, homelessness and/or inpatient treatment. Many of them also experience chronic mental illness.
I earned my Masters of Science degree in Counseling from the University of Nevada. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in both California (MFT #53098) and Nevada (MFT #0901). I also maintain a Drug and Alcohol Counselor License in Nevada (LADC#847-L) 
I opened Palo Verde Therapy in Las Vegas, NV in 2001 and moved to this Auburn location in 2013.  In Las Vegas, I developed a research-based program for clients with multiple, long standing mood and addiction problems and a peer consultation and training program for therapists.  I spoke frequently in university classes, professional associations, and hospitals on the topic of using Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) in the treatment of clients with multiple, complex problems. (Something I still really like to do!)

I am a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT), American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC), and the Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing International Association (EMDRIA). I am the Outreach Coordinator for the Trauma Recovery Network (TRN) through the EMDR International Association for our area. I also provide counseling to Veterans through the Give-an-Hour organization.
I look forward to speaking with you!
Yours truly,
Pam Shore, MFT
