Meet Pam Wenning

“If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that’s a full day. That’s a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you’re going to have something special.” ~ Coach Jim Valvano

Background

Background

I have been a practicing psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner and family nurse practitioner at Trinity Wellness Center for more than 14 years, treating both acute and chronic mental illness across the lifespan as well as substance abuse disorders. I incorporate both medication management and therapy to help patients reach optimal health. I have more than 26 years working in mental health and family medicine. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy and solution-focused therapy modalities in an effort to compliment medication management. These therapies build on a patient’s strengths in an effort to reach optimal wellness. I consider it a privilege to be part of the patient’s journey. 

I enjoy spending time with my family, including my husband, our three sons, and our two morkies. I enjoy running and working out at the gym for core strength and fitness. We enjoy water sports, the mountains and grilling, especially my husband’s famous homemade pizza on the grill. Other interests and passions include yard work, and creating gardens and havens for birds and wildlife.

Testimonials

“I am beyond grateful to Pam Wenning for her amazing support and guidance through one of the most difficult times in my life.  After losing my mother to an untimely demise and then a year later my husband to divorce, I was shattered.  Her compassion and  incredible ability to truly listen and support are immeasurable.

She has incredible insight and knowledge not only into the human mind but the person as a whole. She views and treats me as a human being not just a number and it has made all the difference in my continued growth.  I would recommend her to anyone, as she truly is and has been a gift to me.”
