Meet Us

Susan C. Mengden, PhD, CEDS, Founder & Executive Director

Elizabeth Garrison, Guided Imagery Meditation Specialist

I have mastered many types of Meditation over the years and had many teachers traveling extensively to explore this ancient practice. The practice of meditation enabled me to attain absolute relaxation, pull myself up, find strength and clarity to move forward and confront my problems head on.

I began to craft my own special program using Guided Imagery and Mindfulness together with Autogenic Training to help people release stress, gain clarity to enable themselves to move forward, find solutions and confront situations head on.

My partnership with Dr. Susan Mengden at the I AM Mind and Body Wellness Center is the continuation of my work helping clients that are often dealing with severe pain, cancer, debilitating illnesses, stress both physical and emotional and eating disorders.

The Power Is Within You. Going within and learning to trust our intuitive senses will bring transformation and embrace positive change in your life. I am an ardent animal and nature lover, enjoying yoga, walking and spending time with family and friends.

Pam Curtis, LPC

I am Licensed Professional Counselor with over 40 years experience in the mental health field. My time as a counselor/therapist has been devoted to working with people with eating disorders, including families, couples, individuals, and groups. Body image, trauma treatment, art, and movement have always been my specialties. My training includes Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance, Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT).

In addition to my private practice I have worked as a Staff Therapist at Eating Recovery Center of San Antonio, previously the Eating Disorder Center at San Antonio and as a Lincensed Specialist in School of Psychology with the Northeast Independent and the Austin Indepednet School Districts.

My outside interests and passions include dance, art, yoga, jogging, and spending time in nature.  But my most special time spent is with my family and being the proud grandmother of 4 precious grandchildren.

 Meredith Woolsey

I am a graduate of The University of Texas at San Antonio, where I received a Masters of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. My approach to counseling closely mirrors my view of life: there is no one-size-fits-all answer. I use an eclectic approach to counseling, pulling from the core theoretical approaches of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I began my counseling experience at Family Violence Prevention Services where I worked with victims and survivors of domestic violence. I am excited to continue my counseling journey working as a member of this team!

I believe that as humans, we were created for connection with others. At times, we all experience unexpected circumstances that make life challenging. Attempting to balance all of life’s challenges on our own can be confusing and frustrating. I focus on helping my clients discover their self-worth and core values in order to help them build a life they are proud of.

I was born and raised in Corpus Christi, but have called San Antonio home for the past three years. I am a huge lover of the outdoors, and enjoy spending as much time in the sunshine (wearing my sunscreen!) as possible. I also enjoy reading; combining those two hobbies oftentimes looks like reading a book while lying in my hammock outside. The greater San Antonio community is one that I am proud to be a part of, and one I love to serve.
