About Pamela Harper

Pamela Harper, RN, CAC, CCH
Pamela Harper earned the standing as a leading expert in the fields of addiction treatment, mental health and life transition with 30 years of experience and extensive education both in traditional hospitals, treatment centers and a private practice. Pamela demonstrates excellence by focusing on the needs of the individual rather than the diagnosis. “We are all spiritual beings having a physical experience”.
When recovery from addiction and other life stressors became part of her own life journey she committed her personal and professional life to creating an original and evolved paradigm for healing body, mind and soul.
She developed and purposed a recovery program in Newport Beach, CA in 2011. Once completed, she focused on her ambitious desire to affect the human condition as an advocate for more progressive mental health systems. She uses result based solutions and tools; including NLP and Hypnotherapy along with intuitive and progressive counseling skills.
Counseling, coaching and case management, Pamela currently incorporates transformational treatment modalities for individuals and groups. She is teaching, sharing her message on TV, radio, group events and writing, while also providing an inclusive intervention program for families, individuals, professionals and corporations which include treatment in their home, her office or placement in facilities.
