Pam Burns-Clair, MFT, is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice in Napa, California, specializing in women’s issues and child/parenting issues. She is the daughter of the late Disney Legend, Harriet Burns, who was in many ways a pioneer for women entering the professional world in the '50s. Together with co-author Don Peri, Pam authored a tribute book about her mom, Walt Disney’s First Lady of Imagineering, Harriet Burns, in 2009. Pam has facilitated women’s support groups in her practice for 30 years, authored several articles, taught classes and workshops in her field, and lives in Sonoma, California, with her husband.
She has two daughters, both artists. Chelsea Clair Livingston has collaborated on cover and book design for both books, and is raising her young daughter with her husband in Sonoma. Haley Clair is a performing artist in musical theater and voiceover in New York, living with her husband in New Jersey.
When Pam is asked what her style is in her practice, she says "Eclectic--I pull from a variety of approaches depending on what the client needs. I am always learning from my clients."
