I am Dr. Pamela Krones, and I am a Licensed Psychologist (License # PY 8905) in the state of Florida. I work with adults of all ages (including college students and graduate students) who are struggling with anxiety, relationship diﬃculties, eating disorders (bulimia and binge-eating), body image issues, depression, family of origin problems, low self-esteem, stress management, existential issues, grief/loss, and time management. My clinical style is collaborative, action-oriented, empowering, and individualized to meet your unique needs. Together we will set a treatment plan tailored to your goals, values, and priorities. I bring my natural enthusiasm and passion for human behavior to my practice, and my clients have repeatedly told me that I create a therapeutic relationship that is non-judgmental, warm, and respectful.
I was fortunate to have been educated at a top program – the University of Texas at Austin’s clinical psychology program is ranked 11th out of over 200 programs nationwide – where I received rigorous training and supervision in the most effective, scientiﬁcally researched treatments. Hence, I practice with evidence-based treatments such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Gottman Method Couples Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in order to help you change patterns, habits, thoughts, and behaviors that are not working for you.
As such, my treatments are action-oriented and often require “homework” assignments to help you acquire new skills and to further your progress in-between sessions. I provide ample psychoeducation, more so at the beginning of treatment, in order to help you understand the nature of your issues, the science behind possible treatments, and the skills that I will help you acquire in order to overcome your diﬃculties and move forward. Using the most current, effective, empirically-supported treatments, clients often see signiﬁcant improvements and/or accomplish their goals in 12 to 20 sessions. I have always loved learning about human behavior, and I am committed to continually updating my treatment skills and knowledge about the latest scientiﬁc research on effective treatments.
I also have many years of experience administering and interpreting the career and personality assessment, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). Researched for decades, the MBTI is one of the best tools to help individuals understand how they think about and interact with the world. It is especially useful for couples who would like a deeper and clearer understanding of each other’s unique differences and natural preferences. A great tool for understanding the way in which individuals conceive of time, the MBTI can also help you with time management issues.
