My Bio

Salatha Helton is a licensed marriage and family therapist passionate about travel, holistic care, and enriching women's lives. Based in California and Arizona, her journey from journalism to mental health was fueled by her interest in trauma-informed care and supporting those with intellectual disabilities.

Her practice blends empathy with scientific insight, offering a holistic approach that looks at the whole person. Outside of work, Salatha loves to travel with her husband and explore new cultures, bringing these experiences into her practice to connect deeply with her clients. She believes in nurturing the mind, body, and soul in therapy and everyday life.

My Philosophy

My therapeutic philosophy embraces the gradual journey of healing, where understanding the impact of our past is crucial in better comprehending and navigating our present. Healing is an intentional and time-honored process that unfolds at the pace of everyone’s readiness and capacity for change.In therapy, I prioritize a thoughtful exploration of the present moment, informed by the narratives of our past.

It's a place where women, especially those in high-demand careers, can find relief from the pressures of stress and anxiety and can navigate the complexities of their relationships with confidence.The principles of trauma-informed care are integral to my work, guiding me to engage with each client's story with sensitivity and care.

I'm dedicated to walking alongside my clients on their paths to wellness, equipped with the insights gathered from professional expertise and the richness of my life's journeys. Through this balanced lens, I offer a compassionate, comprehensive approach to mental health and well-being.
