About Shaina

Imagine walking into a room where you are greeted with warmth, compassion, and acceptance. Now imagine sitting in front of someone who listens to you, really gets you and lets you be you. That is my goal as your therapist. I accept you as you are, offer you support and guidance, help you learn tools and offer you hope. In fact, most of my clients say that when they leave the sessions, they start to notice changes and feel hopeful about their life, relationship, and the problems. 

I believe that if it's not broken, don't fix it; if it works, do more of it; if it's not working, do something different; small steps can lead to big changes; the solution is not necessarily related to the problem; & the future is both created and negotiable. 

I have worked in the behavioral health field for over nine years. In that time, I have provided counseling to couples, families, worked with victims of domestic violence, rape, trauma, homelessness, military individuals, & families, helped people enduring grief, counseled on healthy relationships, and dating dilemmas. I am a poly and kink friendly therapist who will provide you with a safe space along with understanding and compassion as you work together. I am also a proud and committed ALLY to the LGBTQII community and really enjoy working and supporting the community.
