I have been listen to MyNDTALK for 7 years. I have again so much knowledge and insight as I listen to each episode. Dr. Pamela Brewer is a great interviewer and has way of helping people see the full picture. I have sent episode to family and friend and I look forward to email alerts when another episode drops. I am happy that I have MyNDTALK is in my life.
I was interviewed by Dr. Brewer and was very impressed by the scope of her knowledge and her willingness to ask interesting and provocative questions. Her work is a valuable contribution to the community that she reaches with her programming. As far as I am concerned, she more than qualifies for this recognition.
My colleague, Cathy Roberts, and I had the honor of being interviewed by Pamela Brewer early on in our effort to raise awareness of racism and White Privilege. Pamela was engaging and ready to ask interesting and sometimes difficult questions. It was clear that she was very present during the interview, not working from a script but from an intention to get to the heart of our motivations for the work that we do. I felt invited to go inside myself and show up in a very important way.
Dr. Brewer's podcast is a godsend to anyone who is interested in personal growth and understanding the psychological obstacles that hold us back. I've had the pleasure of being interviewed by her for a couple of my books on emotionally immature parents, and it is such a joy to engage with her on any topic. Her incisive, get-to-the-heart-of-it approach zeroes in on what her listeners want to know, and her warm, curious, intelligent manner has a way of getting her guests to open up and go ever deeper over the course of the interview. I look forward to every contact with her and recommend her podcast to everyone I can! She is a blessing to our collective consciousness-raising.
I had the honor of being interviewed by Dr. Pamela Brewer about my memoir, Timeless Dance: A Story of Change and Loss. My book reflects on my journey understanding the gender transition of my son at a time when transgender issues were rarely, if ever discussed, and then grappling with the untimely death of my beautiful new daughter. Part memoir, part biography of a remarkable young woman, and part primer on gender diversity, my story is highly personal, as well as it is enlightening for anyone who has not shared similar experiences. Dr. Brewer's communications with me prior to the interview and her questions during the interview demonstrated that not only had she read the book, but connected with it and with me with great empathy and understanding. In listening to many of her other shows, I am always struck by her skill in asking just the right questions and connecting with whomever she interviews. MyNDTalk is a very worthwhile and educational program, a service to all those who take the time to listen.
Dr. Pamela Brewer's soothing serene voice is a pleasure to hear but don't be fooled, she is a quiet riot, a force of nature. Her deep, knowing wisdom is clearly shared with poignant questions and conversation with whomever she is interviewing.
I have had the honor and pleasure of speaking with Dr. Brewer not once but twice. As an author, speaker, entrepreneur, mother of 3 young adults, cancer survivor, and 9/11 widow, my mission is to help bring normalcy and awareness to mental health and emotional wellness--a mounting movement across our country and around the world.
In 2017, Dr. Brewer and I discussed my brand of kindness, Cozmeena Enlightened Living, which focuses on bringing warmth, comfort and care, consideration, Grace and decency back into our daily lives.
In 2018, we discussed my memoir, The Light in 9/11: Shocked by Kindness, Healed by Love. The Light in 9/11 is the story of how 9/11 became the catalyst for me to experience remarkable personal growth which began by seeking mental health counseling in the wake of 9/11. My mission: to 'figure it all out' and countermand the fear and terror that has been driving our country into a negative emotional spin since the morning of 9/11. From dissecting and studying my personal experiences and our world at large in psychoanalytic analysis, I broke through the ceiling to mental health at year four. It was a then that Cozmeena came through as a brand of kindness that could one day change the world.
I consider Dr Brewer to be a dear friend and the wisest of counsel. She shares her vast experience in mental health counseling with her audience each day, changing lives for the better with her intelligent, competent and compassionate professional wisdom. The world will be a much better place when everyone is listening to this beautiful, brilliant lady!
Dr. Brewer is simply amazing. She possesses a vibrant and insightful perspective of the world and those around her. Her podcasts are indeed, public resources, and should be classified as required listening.
On April 24, 2019, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by MyNDTALK with Dr. Pamela Brewer, Inc.
It was a great interview and this was a great opportunity to share my story and the mission of EnVision Proven Success Columbus. MyNDTALK is a great resource to connect with others like women globally.
MyNDTALK provides a valuable service to the community. I've been listening to Dr. Brewer for years!
Amazing programming I always learn so much! Thank you dr brewer!
I always enjoy listening to the interesting topics and learning about new authors and stories. Always fascinating and enlightening!!
The topics are always insightful and engaging! Each time I tune in, I not only learn something, I have great conversations with family and friends! PS...they think I am super smart!
Dr . Pamela Brewer interviewed me on my book “A Mother’s Heartbreak: How Scientology Destroyed My Family”. I felt really comfortable sharing my heartbreaking story with Dr. Brewer. She asked great and in-depth questions. This is my 2nd time being interviewed by her. I have been disconnected from my two adult children for the past 8 years and Dr. Brewer had a lot of compassion with my sad situation. I appreciate having the opportunity to be on her show.
Thank you Lori - Your willingness to share your story helps MyNDTALK listeners worldwide know they are not alone in trying to navigate family disruptions.
I am honored to say that Dr. Pamela Brewer is a colleague and friend of mine. Her commitment and dedication to the field of social work shows in how she addresses the variety of issues that impact our mental health daily. I have learned a lot from Dr. Brewer and listen to her show regularly.
Dr. Brewer is making mental health education a public conversation! This is an important contribution to our communities.
MyNDTALK with Dr. Pamela Brewer is an extremely important community resource and outlet for people to learn about mental health and wellness issues. With all of the information that is constantly thrown at us, MyNDTALK stands out as a promoter of healthy living and understanding across different experiences. The guests are interesting and informative. Also, the program is a great first resource for people who are hesitant to seek professional help or don't find the support they need to discuss mental health issues among their own circle. Love this program!
Dr. Pamela Brewer has such a "Naturalness" about herself...your comfort level conversing with her just flows. One can tell how thorough Dr. Brewer is with the questions she asks her guests! When I'm listening to MyNDTALK, I'm thinking to myself..."oh please ask them this or that" and she hasn't failed me yet! LOL Dr. Brewer, you are indeed a "POWERHOUSE!" Thank you for all that you bring to the community!
Remember that you can always email Pamela@MyNDTALK.org if there is a topic you would like discussed on MyNDTALK! Thank YOU so much for your review!
Dr. Brewer is a national treasure. She is not only brilliant, her insight gets to the heart of whatever topic is under discussion. These gifts,combined with her extraordinary interviewing skills reveal new awarenesses to her listeners with every show. My sense of what drives her is a mission to make it safe to hold conversations while holding on to respect for the essential humanity in all of us.
She understands that it is the human mind that shapes our experience and behavior and that only our sense of interconnectedness will make our lives rich and safe.
Dr. Brewer has labored tirelessly since the early 90’s to bring sanity and grace to the world. She is a gifted and insightful interviewer who has an uncanny knack for eliciting from those she interviews the core of what they offer.
It would seem like a tautology to offer that the human brain creates our social universe, yet this truth is so easily forgotten. Dr. Brewer reminds us (every time she takes to the microphone) that it is HOW we think that creates our social milieu. This is her great gift: to provoke deep and useful thought and discourse.
She deserves to be lauded for excellence in her field.
Dr. Brewer is a first rate interviewer! As a guest on her show in 2016, Dr. Brewer created a comfortable space for conversation, asking meaningful questions and follow ups. She offers enough structure to keep guests on topic while staying out of the way which maximizes the value and quality of conversation for her listening audience. Her willingness to engage in a broad range of sometimes difficult and controversial topics is a real benefit to the field of mental health and to her listeners.
Dr. Pamela Brewer was part of a panel discussion after a screening of a documentary about street harassment and rape culture within African-American communities. The event was held in D.C.’s Ward 8, where many of the highly contentious events featured in the documentary took place. Feelings were raw among the audience after the screening. The issues that came up in the documentary, triggered memories and emotions that needed to be navigated carefully. Having Dr. Brewer on the panel made all the difference. Her comments were right on point and her guidance during the discussion was invaluable. An event that could easily have been reduced to shouting matches and negativity, instead ended with women feeling empowered and men vowing to do better to make their communities safer for everyone. It’s clear that Dr. Brewer is as committed as ever to the District of Columbia’s African American Community. She is a treasure within the DC Metropolitan Region.

We had a great conversation on Pamela's Show. She is thoughtful and insightful and interested in the well being and personal growth of her listeners. Pamela is authentic in every way: the real deal.
I've had multiple authors interviewed on MyNDTALK and each experience has been excellent. Pamela and Jim do their homework and the outcome is a quality, informative, interesting interview, for both the author and the listeners.
We've worked with Dr. Pamela Brewer on several interviews with our author clients. Each time they reported back to us immediately that the interview was a wonderful experience. And when we tune in to listen, we understand why: her interviews are thoughtful, personal,
and compassionate, and it's clear she prepares thoroughly for each one. Few radio hosts combine the knowledge, empathy, and radio chops that she does. We've become avid listeners in our office.
Several of my clients have been on the show and all have had very positive experiences, as Dr. Brewer is always well-informed and engaging. Given the segments are longer than usual, Dr. Brewer has the opportunity to really dive deep on topics and engage listeners. I just love this show!
When Dr. Pamela Brewer interviews you, you know she is present, connected, and deeply focused. Her questions get straight to the point and bring about issues you, as the interviewee, may not have considered. Her calm and beautiful voice bring the listener into the world she is exploring, engaging you in a conversation that you know could go on forever.
I was deeply honored to be interviewed by her and believe that the information she brought forth will inspire others to research my charity and perhaps begin their own branch wherever they are. Wonderful!
My client, Dr. Jeffrey B. Rubin, author of The Art of Flourishing: A Guide to Mindfulness, Self-Care, and Love in a Chaotic World, LOVED Dr. Pamela Brewer’s interview! He was so impressed with her preparedness, excellent questions, depth of understanding, and much more (he went on and on…) He could not say enough about her SUPERLATIVE interview! - Maria Sliwa, M. Sliwa Public Relations
It was my honour to be interviewed this past week by Dr. Pamela Brewer of MyNDTALK radio show.
"It was a great interview. The best one yet. I was a little curious about why she didn't ask for a list of questions but boy, she read the book! She is a really good interviewer, sharp mind. We had a good deep conversation and she pulled out the good stuff that really mattered in the book. I am very pleased."
Hope you can join us on Tuesday, July 11th and again on Friday, July 14th.
I've had the extreme pleasure of being a recent guest on Dr. Brewer's radio show for a segment she did on the joys and challenges of caregiving. She is warm, professional, insightful, and witty--a rare and welcome combination in a radio host! It was obvious she had reviewed my book beforehand, which I so appreciated. Her familiarity with the book and the subject allowed us to explore a number of important issues together. The experience was akin to having a meaningful conversation with a close friend--she puts guests that much at ease. She is a genuine gift to her listeners and clients and a credit to her field.

There is no one I have seen or heard working in the media, any media, in the areas of mental health and human relationships as dedicated to the problems of everyday existence with the kind of broad scale depth as Dr. Pamela Brewer. I am impressed with the integrity of her personal commitment to be of service to the greatest community possible with the goal of helping all people to attain the best possible individual sense of well being, thus enabling them to go out into their lives and communities and be positive forces for change. In the 20 years of tuning in periodically, I have found a consistency in intention to offer as much pertinent and timely insight as possible, as well as helpful resources. Dr. Brewer is a skillful interviewer whose warm, relaxed style makes settling for a receptive listen easy. MyndTalk with Dr. Pamela Brewer is a great program with a phenomenally gifted teacher/professional/guide at the helm. It should be recommended listening by NAMI and every other mental health organization out there and required listening by every school of social work and/or communications. And definitely needs to be supported so it stays around!
Thank you so much, Dr. Pamela Brewer. You are a delight. You don't ask the standard questions. You are genuinely interested in the topic. And you make the interview feel as if we are sitting in comfy chairs sipping tea and having conversation. Thank you so very much for such a positive experience.
The programming provided is always forward-looking, strengthening and supportive. Well worth the time to listen in. You can sign-up to receive a heads-up email on the topics and guests she'll be hosting each week and make your plans to listen-in! Dr. Brewer is attune to the ways to lift people up and help them/us to problem-solve.
I was so blessed to come across this incredible show. Dr. Brewer seems to find guests who have topics that greatly interest and help me with my day to day situations. Things you'd never think anyone experienced before, other than you, then Wow, that's the topic for the day. Also Dr. Brewers questions are right on point! I love that some of the guest will also provide their books as downloads as well, so that you can delve into the topic in more depth if you want to. Now that I've found Myndtalk I would be lost without it. Thank you Dr. Brewer.
I believe Pamela Brewers work is extremely important in today's world. Now more than ever we need to engage in thought provoking conversations that provide food for thought from a variety of sources. Myndtalk with Dr. Brewer is an engaging and stimulating resource for those of us who are open minded enough to ask the deeper questions about ourselves and the world around us. As a two time guest on her show I must admit that I love her interview style and how she engages with the person she is interviewing.
Every time I listen in on Myndtalk, I am astonished at the continuing quality of the interviews, their depth, interestingness and insight. Would like to see this show more broadly distributed. It is not only a useful tool for someone like me, who sees patients every day, but is also pitched at a level that an intelligent listener from any walk of life can become more knowledgeable with a wide range of mental health issues.
As a longtime listner and one time guest on MyNDTALK. I have appreciated the breath of topics coupled with the wit and intelligence of Dr. Brewer.
Congrats on your anniversary! The help you've brought to the world has been powerful! Thanks for having me on your show to share the message in my book, "Focused Forward: Navigating the Storms of Adult ADHD." Really enjoyed our time together and look forward to another opportunity in the future. Continue doing what you do because it makes a true difference.
Dr. Brewer Provides invaluable insights into the lives of fascinating people. Listening to her ask insightful questions of her guests, and listening to their responses, provides me with significant insights into the workings of my own mind. Thus I have learned that we are more alike than different.
Thank you Dr. Brewer for sharing your gifts with the world.
Dr. Brewer has been a steadfast force in the community and online for many years. She has interesting guests and a down to earth way of talking to people. Love her show - listen all the time - it's great that its an on demand podcast!
Pam Brewer interviewed me for an hour about my book PRESCRIPTIONS WITHOUT PILLS. I was stunned when the hour ended. The interview had been such fun that it felt like only five minutes had gone by. We laughed a lot, and yet at the same time Pamela's well-chosen questions enabled us to cover multiple key issues regarding how to deal with the common colds of mental health like depression, anger and anxiety.
I look forward to a second interview, which we scheduled at the end of this one, having found the first so invigorating. Total kudos to this superb interviewer.
Dr. Brewer is steadfast in giving her time and knowledge to the community. I have had the pleasure of working with her in the community and have found that that she is not only a consummate professional, but also extremely generous with her support. I would recommend Dr. Brewer and her organization as great resources for many divers groups.
What an honor it was to be invited to speak with Dr. Pamela Brewer on MyNDTALK. She is hands-down the most insightful and talented interviewer I have had the pleasure of talking to. Her knowledge about the dynamics of addiction and recovery and her obvious familiarity with my book made for a discussion of depth that I will always appreciate. Thank you, Dr. Brewer! Lisa Sue Woititz, author of Unwelcome Inheritance: Break Your Family's Cycle of Addictive Behavior.
Dr. Brewer provides insightful interviews with compassion and grace. MyNDTalk shares the challenges and triumphs of mental health and wellness highlighting stories from our diverse community.
I've learned a lot and make sure to share the topics with my friend and families. So glad the interviews are archived online!
While there are a number of not-for-profit organizations whose goals are noteworthy, MyNDTALK with Dr. Pamela Brewer has a uniqueness all its own. Dr. Brewer's all-inclusive message resonates on so many levels, which is precisely why I wholeheartedly offer my endorsement and support to both her and her organization. I'm sure I'm not alone in believing that her contributions to society are immeasurable. Bravo Dr. Brewer!
My interview with Dr. Pamela Brewer far exceeded my expectations. She is kind, considerate, thoughtful, insightful and I felt like I was speaking to a very intelligent friend. Her questions spoke to my passion and allowed me to share from the deepest part of my heart. I feel our conversation will be very helpful to the listeners which is what is all about. I felt honored to be able to have an hour conversation with her. I received questions I have not heard before based on my book and felt very comfortable speaking with Dr. Pamela Brewer. I highly recommend listening to her show and for experts that have knowledge to share to step up and have a conversation with her so her listeners can benefit. Not only will her listeners benefit but so will you personally from her warm, inviting and intelligent nature. I am very grateful for this experience.
Dr. Pamela Brewer has the special gift of being a wonderful listener and then someone who talks "with" her guests so that they can share the best of what they have to offer to Myndtalk's audience. I am a specialist in the field of interpersonal communication and am always on the lookout and listening for people who are excellent at it. Dr. Brewer is a wonderful communicator. Listen for yourself to check her out.
If you are tired of mindless radio and interviewers with more of an agenda than a purpose and who don't listen, Myndtalk is the antidote.
Myndtalk is an exceptionally valuable resource to the local community and the nation for the health building perspectives it brings relating to knowledge of mental health, coping and problem solving, confronting life's challenges, and employs famous and everyday personal examples of overcoming adversity. The information is facilitated in a compassionate and expert manner by Dr. Pamela Brewer. It is an excellent use of today's media that engages today's audience by respecting their intellect and diverse cultures. I have been a listener and contributor because I believe it is worthy of being an institution from which many can be enriched.
When I interviewed with Dr. Pamela Brewer to discuss my book BLENDED: Writers On The Stepfamily Experience, I found Dr. Brewer had a deep understanding of the issues stepfamilies face, and a thorough knowledge of every story in BLENDED and how it relates to those issues. Her warmth, compassion, and knowledge shone through every question she asked, and I found time with her both informative and important for listeners, and a great pleasure for me. She is doing immensely important work through MyNDTALK and I hope her audience is broad, receptive, and appreciative of the gifts her work brings them.
Dr. Brewer is an intelligent, kind, compassionate person. She treats
people with a lot of respect. She makes people feel comfortable teling
their story. Because she is a psychologist talking to people in such a
warm way, she does a lot to break down the stigma of seeking help
for mental health issues. I am a psychologist too, and I respect everything
that she is doing.
Dr. Brewer has labored relentlessly on behalf of the community for twenty years to deliver enlightening content to her listeners. The community has celebrated her for her contribution of (in her words) "making it make sense".
My colleague, Dr. Lorraine Mangione, and I were recently interviewed for mYndtalk regarding our book, "Daughters, Dads, and the Path through Grief: Tales from Italian America." Dr. Brewer's questions were indicative of a nuanced understanding of our book - they were thoughtful, on point, and engaging. Beyond our interview, mYndtalk does a wonderful job of highlighting important cultural and mental health issues; this is a great service to people looking for helpful information regarding relationships and personal growth in a world that is increasingly complex. Bravo!

FOUND THIS PODCAST ONLINE - I CAN LISTEN WHENEVER I want to and I like that I can listen to shows over and over. One day I heard an interview about autism...what a life changer! MyNDTALK is on my calendar every day!
I used to think that I was ALONE with the terrible relationship I was in -plus I thought it was all my fault - thanks to MyNDTALK with Dr. Pamela Brewer I know better! i used a referral I got from the show , now I have a counselor and i have a real chance at a realy life!!!!!!!!!
This program has introduced me to different degrees of mental wellness that helps me to stay focused on what is important and healthy for me. I have also learned when it is time to ask for help - that asking for help is ok!
Thank you so much for this comment - this is exactly what MyNDTALK is for!
Since I've been listening to the programs that are on MyNDTALK, my whole perspective on life and how to live it has changed for the better. I can now make good decisions for myself. I now invite those people into my life who can help me with my dreams. Thanks Dr Brewer!
I have listened as often as I can since discovering this remarkably informative and profoundly helpful talk show. Great guests, fabulous host. What a tremendous resource for up to yah minute mental health news and deep information. Go Myndtalk!!!
I have never listened to a show that has impacted my marriage, and my overall well being in such a powerful way!!! I highly encourage this show, it has something to offer everyone!
I love Myndtalk! It covers a ton of fascinating mental health topics. I listen to it a few times a week, depending on the subject matter.
I greatly appreciate the courage that Dr. Pamela Brewer exhibits on Myndtalk; taking on the tough and most current subjects facing today’s culture as a whole. I enjoyed the opportunity that was given to me and my colleague to discuss in a positive and scholarly manner, the effect of community violence on adults, children and families who live in many of Maryland’s marginalized communities. Media outlets such as Myndtalk are essential resources for educators, community representatives and Non-profit stakeholders; allowing for an unbiased gathering place that promotes positive conversation over issues and concerns.

Dr. Brewer is extremely knowledgeable and I believe she truly understands her callers' need to hear straight forward advice. I find her conversational style to be very soothing.
MyndTalk with Dr. Pamela Brewer is excellent, awesome and far reaching. I have been a guest twice on Pamela's radio and online show and she is devoted, compassionate and very intelligent. She made me feel so comfortable as I told her the story about the brutal murder of my son and the immense cover up and corruption that surrounds the criminal investigation. I have written a book, The Scent of My Son, In God we Trust, that details all factual and truthful events. Myndtalk is the perfect venue for any author, advocate and person who has an unconscionable and heart wrenching story. Any person who is fighting for justice and needs to be heard must talk with Pamela Brewer........she engages her listeners and is always genuine and forthcoming. She has very special gifts and conveys her and her guest's message with pure and honest dedication. Her mantra is.....if it is unacceptable, than that is exactly what it is, unacceptable. She is the best!
Myndtalk with Dr. Pamela Brewer is a wonderful show with so many loyal listeners, I include myself in that group. Dr. Brewer has interesting guests, a wide range of topics, and continues to be a clearinghouse of information and resources for the community. I hope the show continues for at least a couple more decades. Kudos to Dr. Brewer and Myndtalk
