Ariel Shuhart, MS, NCC

National Certified Counselor


I have had a passion for psychology and counseling since my first psychology course in high school, this motivated me to attend amazing colleges where I received education that broadened my worldview.

Messiah College- 2012

Bachelor of Arts in Psychology

*Counseling Concentration

Shippensburg University- 2015

Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling



Following graduate school I joined the Peace Corps and received intensive training in cross-cultural and interpersonal work, focusing on interventions with students and families.  


I received training while working at Wellspan Philhaven on managing more intensive psychiatric disorders. I also have experience working in outpatient clinics, drug and alcohol programs, as well as college counseling departments.  


I received trainings and close supervision in all of these settings and have been able to grow into a more diverse counselor as a result.


In 2017, I completed the mandatory training for drug and alcohol counselors from the Pennsylvania Department of Drug and Alcohol.

As a mental health practitioner I strive to continually educate myself through reading books related to mental health and treatment as well as keeping up with new research.  I also will continue to seek out and attend trainings as well as receiving supervision from respected professionals in my field.



I am happily married and living in Greencastle, Pennsylvania.  I have an extreme passion for traveling and increasing my global knowledge and awareness.  I also do my best to stay active, going on hikes, exercising, and being outside as much as I can.
