About Dr. Singer

 


Dr. Pam Singer is a licensed clinical psychologist in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Her clinical practice is based in Palo Alto, California, and she offers consultation across the Peninsula and in San Francisco, California.  

 

Dr. Singer received her doctoral degree from the PGSP-Stanford PsyD Consortium.  She has trained and worked in diverse settings, including the Veteran's Hospital (VAPAHCS), college counseling centers, and the Stanford Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences.  Observing how powerful a variety of carefully selected interventions could be when tailored to specific challenges in each setting, Dr. Singer developed a passion for program development and helping treatment programs offer the most effective and individualized interventions.  She used her knowledge from these experiences to help develop and lead both PTSD and Eating Disorder outpatient treatment programs at Kaiser Permanente facilities in the Bay Area, and later to serve as Clinical Director at The Lotus Collaborative, a facility offering higher levels of care to individuals with eating disorders and trauma.

While Dr. Singer has found it fulfilling and exciting to help therapeutic programs to maximize impact, her primary drive is working with individuals from a variety of backgrounds to move toward wellness.  She now works exclusively in private practice to maximize her time with clients, but continues to consult to organizations and other professionals.

 

Dr. Singer is trained in interventions and tools that are backed  by research, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and mindfulness-based therapies.  Studies have shown these techniques to be effective in treating a wide variety of difficulties, including depression and mood disorders, anxiety, eating disorders, and relationship concerns.

 

Dr. Singer has a special interest and training in working with disruptions of the mind-body connection (for more information about this, see services).  She is a certified yoga teacher and is able to bring these skills into her clinical work. When applicable, Dr. Singer teaches tools that help people reclaim power over their autonomic nervous systems, stay present and grounded, and increase self-acceptance.
