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.
Tammy Cauthern, LMSW
My therapeutic philosophy is based on the belief that we all have an optimal self; a self that is the best version of who we are and who we can be. It is my mission to help people uncover or re-discover their best selves. My past clinical positions in community, residential, and acute mental health settings has afforded me the opportunity to work with diverse populations and people from all walks of life. I am experienced with working with individuals with anxiety, depression, eating disorders, lack of self-esteem, trauma, personality disorders, and more. I have advanced training in LGBTQI+ mental health and gender transitioning.
My therapy approach promotes personal strengths, life satisfaction, self-compassion, self-worth, gratitude, and optimism. I believe in providing a safe, validating, respectful, and nonjudgmental space for the people I serve. I am passionate about working with LGBTQI+ individuals. I use CBT, DBT, and blended therapy models to suit the needs of my clients.
