Pamela Saladino, M.S., M.A., LMHC, CHP – Licensed Professional Counselor

I am a licensed professional counselor serving clients in and around Osprey, Florida and beyond. At present, I use a safe and confidential video conferencing format and conduct sessions via the telephone or in the office. I look forward to working with you to addresses your challenges and realize your goals! Therapy is a beautiful process that can heal you and move you toward being the healthiest version of yourself. Through this experience, you can begin living the life you desire. Give me a call to talk for a few moments about what is concerning you and we can schedule a session. If I’m not available at the moment, please leave me a detailed message and I will get back to you just as soon as I can.

Treatment Approach

field pathI truly enjoy my work! I am committed to helping clients recover their lost sense of self. I am an eclectic therapist, employing a variety of approaches to assist my clients in meeting their unique needs. I encourage the practices of meditation, relaxation, mindfulness, gratitude, yoga and stretching, massage, nature appreciation, and spirituality.  Neuroscience research reveals that individuals who practice these techniques are happier, more resilient, and better equipped to handle and heal from life experiences.  I am a Certified Hypnotherapy Practitioner. Hypnotherapy within the clinical practice and learning self-hypnosis techniques can be highly beneficial. Journaling and other writing exercises, art, imagination, learning to work with the mind and the shadow side and dream-keeping are all important, too, as the subconscious tries very hard to assist us in healing.  I am active in Jungian thought and love to hear, contemplate and help my clients interpret their dreams. I also love the work of Adler, Rogers, and the existentialists, such as Yalom, and the different theories and practices that can offer more short-term, immediate solutions. Every life has a past, every life is interesting,  and every life has experienced the dual natures of joy and sorrow, as life is always in a state of flux. It can be overwhelming to get through this experience.

Though we are human and may disappoint ourselves and others at times, as Emerson states so well:

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”

– Ralph Waldo Emerson
