About Us

Shaina Gordon, Founder/ Clinical Director

My name is Shaina Gordon and I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) providing therapy for those who live in Georgia, North Carolina and Florida. I am here to guide you through life’s most complex and difficult matters.

I am originally from Miami, Florida but relocated to Ft. Lauderdale after Hurricane Andrew. I received my Bachelor of Arts in psychology from Emory University in 2009 and my Master of Social Work from Boston University in 2011. At Boston University, I also received a certificate in behavioral medicine which provided me with comprehensive knowledge of psychotropic medication.

I am intensely trained in Dialectical Behavioral therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT) as well as mindfulness and meditation practices. I have found these therapies very effective in treating depression, anxiety, emotion dysregulation and interpersonal issues.

 

Dave Terraso, MSW

I believe everyone has a story to tell. The way I see it, life is made of the stories we tell ourselves and the stories we tell others. Trauma, depression, anxiety, and substances can influence and interrupt our story, but if we are mindful about who we are and who we want to be, we can put those occurrences in their proper place. They can exist as something that we went through rather than something that defines us.

I work with adults all ages, genders, and sexualities. I aim to help people who’ve been traumatized by events and experiences, as well as those who are struggling with depression, anxiety, or recovering from abuse, whether it be from another person, substances, or alcohol.

I am trained in DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), and TF-CBT (Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy).

I received my MSW from the University of Georgia in 2022 and am pursuing an LMSW.
