Welcome to HopeWise Counseling Center
Salina Shelton, MA, LPC-AT, ATR-BC
Hello, my name is Salina and I am so glad you are here. As a Licensed Professional Counselor and Board-Certified Art Therapist, I am committed to helping people heal and create happier, healthier lives. I am also a certified MARI practitioner and trained in EMDR for chronic pain and trauma.
Often, trauma, grief, anxiety, or depression are part of the story that needs healing and at times, chronic pain & illness are also part of that story. Through the use of expressive therapies like EMDR and art, I would love to help you ease symptoms and find your own path to a happier life.
It takes immense courage to reach out and ask for help. Sometimes we might not know exactly what is causing our troubles, only that we have been struggling for some time. Through our work together, I would love to help you find calm in the chaos so that you can begin the healing process. I might use mindfulness, relaxation techniques, EMDR, or other coping skills to help you find a feeling of safety and calm.
Finding a sense of calm is just one benefit of counseling. Understanding and learning to manage our thoughts, emotions and behaviors can be an important tool in creating a happier life. Through therapy, I can help you explore and learn how to develop healthier thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are true to your own values.
I invite you to start your healing journey today. Call to schedule an appointment.
