LaTonya N. Shelton, LCSW, RYT
We all know that life can seem unbearable at times. You probably have tried everything possible to face these challenges on your own. Or maybe you feel your problem is too big (or overwhelming), or the hurt too deep (or shameful) for anyone to possibly understand or help. I’m here to share that this is simply not true. Your heart knows there is more–better. More importantly, you want more. The potential for healing is available when individuals are given the desired support and guidance in a safe space to explore, validate and address their emotional wounds.
I offer compassionate care from a strengths-based perspective. This means we build upon the strengths, gifts, and skills you already have to further support change and growth–TOGETHER! I do this by balancing empathy, healthy challenging, honesty and encouragement as parts of the therapeutic process. You may laugh. You will cry. And all of that is okay. I believe this is the door to healing.
You are not alone. You are not defective or flawed. You can experience a life that feels joyous, purposeful, and in control. You can establish meaningful connections and sustain healthy relationships. You can achieve a tranquil mind, relaxed body, and an open heart. Let’s get ready to do good work TOGETHER!
