Exceeding Expectations One Patient at a Time
I am originally from Miami, Florida but relocated to Ft. Lauderdale after Hurricane Andrew destroyed my family’s home. 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 specifically 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.
At Online Therapy of Atlanta, we implement effective psychotherapy methods to instill self-understanding among clients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix; therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the client and caregiver alike. But in the end, making small changes in self-defeating behavior and in feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results – and with our services, we will help you achieve just that. Our services are personalized to suit everyone’s needs, and we go the extra mile to provide you with all the tools you need to recover.
I loved working with Shaina and she taught me how to see and react to things differently. I have used her for two sessions, two years in a row and plan to come back as needed. I feel I got over the most difficult roadblocks I was facing and have the tools now when I encounter new ones. Shaina is a good listener and lets you see both sides while making your own decisions. She is very supportive and encouraging.
