About Pam Rothman

My Story

It’s taken me a long time to get here. When I was a kid, my dream job was to be an illustrator. I started drawing when I was two. Everyone told me I had a talent and a gift, so I thought I had to be some type of artist. Fast forward all those gross adolescent years where teenage angst was in full swing and I was completely out of control. I got into art school but was absolutely miserable. How could this be? This was my life’s calling! My hobby became a chore, so I left. I wound up going back to school for journalism since I always liked to write. After graduation, I bounced from job to job due to getting fired because of my bad attitude and ongoing feeling of wanting more.

Dr Gill has helped me beat something that I have failed to beat for years. If you are struggling, her methods and practices will work if you listen.

– Cori

"Dr. Gill is incredibly kind, compassionate and knowledgeable. I’m so grateful to have found her! She just wants the best for me and takes the time to listen without ever judging. I always feel much calmer after leaving an appointment with her. The office staff is always friendly and helpful. I highly recommend her."

-Erica

"I would highly recommend Dr. Gill to everyone. I just adore her and she has been a blessing to me. She is compassionate, understanding, very respectful and always there for any questions or concerns that I have. I’ve never felt rushed by her as she takes the time to listen and I truly love that about her! If your searching for that special doctor give her a call. Thanks Dr. Gill."

-Sallie

"At this point in life, I’ve visited many doctors and as most people know it is kind of like shopping around.. Dr. Jasmine Gill is Absolutely great! Very friendly, caring, and on top of things! I honestly can’t see her not giving everyone but the best of impressions! I’m very happy to have found a doc to connect with that knows her stuff and relates in a friend type manor! I can’t say enough good things!!!"

-N.B.G.

Since I was unemployed during the recession, I volunteered at a local mental health group. I seemed to play the role of therapist to my friends, and due to my upbringing, I knew more than I liked to admit. I felt like I finally had the purpose I was looking for. After three years of job hunting, I took the first job I could find. During that time, I made an appointment at Holy Family University’s graduate admissions to see what it would take to go back to school. There’s just no way to swing working a full-time job and grad school. I felt defeated, but I kept it in mind while I’m miserable at this new job. But, surprise! I got fired from that job, too. I signed up for prerequisite classes the next day in pajamas, and got into grad school by the following semester. I would love to say how much I adored grad school, but school is not my favorite. Sure, I learned a lot and had some great professors, but it became redundant. I was restless and ready to start interning. No amount of education can prepare students for practicing in their field, and my internship was incredible. I was worried that my previous brush with the legal system would interfere with landing an internship, so I applied to an inpatient rehab, which then hired me full time as a case manager. I worked my way up to a therapist then a supervisory role, and was in my element working with people who came from nothing and often court mandated. I like to think my clients and I got along well because I treated them as human beings and not criminals or victims. The link I found with repeated substance use disorder clients was often their unprocessed trauma. I pursued additional trainings, and now specialize in addiction and trauma. Over time, I discovered that my clients felt heard and that the long journey it took to get here was worth it.
