Who We Are


Dr. Chanda Pilgrim - Licenced Psychologist, Author, Poet, Speaker

Dr. Pilgrim is a beloved psychologist with 20+  years of experiences in counseling and testing. Her services address the mind, body and spirit.   Her psychological evaluations are diagnostic, therapeutic and motivational.  (see below)


Clear Trauma

Dr. Pilgrim is certified in Rapid Resolution Therapy, an easy method of reducing and eliminating trauma in a non-threatening manner.  People have been amazed when they were now able to talk about their old traumas and not be re-traumatized.


Writer, Poet, Public Speaker

Her passion to heal others with her words extends beyond the boundaries of the counseling session to her books and poems (or as she calls them poetic prayers). 

Psychological Testing

Gifted Placement

Do you think your child belongs in the gifted classes? You can have your child tested individually and (hopefully) prove what you know to be true.  The testing can be used for admission to MENSA.

ADHD and Learning Disabilities

Do you or your child have a hard time paying attention in class. Do you find no matter how hard you try you just can't get it.  Comprehensive testing can figure out what problems exist and will generate solutions for you to share with your school.

Immigration N-648

Do you have a family member who is struggling to pass the US citizenship exam?  If they qualify for a medical diagnosis, they can get a waiver and still become a citizen.

This little book explains why words are powerful and how to use your words to create the life you want. We learn that talking about what we don't want brings what we don't want to us. 


Poetic Prayers (excerpt from "Deliverance" )

  Defeated is the word that I believe I have used That describes the way I make myself feel abused I value my integrity, my honor, my word, But still there are times that it all seems absurd You see right now I am in the place of growth And I must deal with the feelings differently, it is time for rebirth ...
