Associate Marriage and Family Therapist
Shaina received her Bachelors of Arts in Psychology from Rutgers Newark in 2014. Thereafter, she moved on to attend Kean University, Nathan Weiss Graduate College where she earned her Masters of Arts in Psychology in 2016. In May of 2017 she completed a professional Diploma in Marriage & Family Therapy. Shaina is currently working towards becoming a fully Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist.
Shaina believes in the ideas of Family Systems Theory and that in order to fully understand a client, it is essential to see how they interact with their environment and family unit. She loves family therapy because she feels working collaboratively with the family not only becomes an enriching and fulfilling journey for them, but can also aid in the healing process.
Some of her favorite books include: The Family Crucible, Manic, Awareness and The Diary of an Oxygen Thief . She looks forward to completing her clinical hours at Integrated Care Concepts & Consultation and expanding her understanding of families and couples therapy.
One of Shainas’ favorite quotes is by Brené Brown –
“We don’t have to do all of it alone. We were never meant to.”
