My Approach to Supporting Wellbeing

Trauma-informed knowledge is at the heart of my work.   I understand that trauma is a human experience that exists at individual, agency, and community levels and requires proper support and attention.

I do not believe in cookie-cutter approaches.  I work to understand the unique challenges that are present in your personal or professional environment and provide innovative solutions and support.

I believe that all humans, agencies, and communities have strengths that can be built upon to promote growth.  I work with you to identify the strengths that currently exist in your environment and promote solutions that build on this.

Trauma-Informed

Services

Therapy and Mental Health Coaching

My approach to therapy and mental health coaching is laid back and down to earth. I am warm, nurturing, and empathetic. My work with you would begin with an assessment of where you are presently at, specifically paying attention to what's going well, as strengths are an essential foundation on which positive change can be built.

PLEASE NOTE: At this time I have a waitlist for therapy and coaching services.

Psychedelic Assisted Therapy Facilitation

Psychedelic Assisted Therapy (PAT) is a type of mental health treatment that involves the use of psychedelic substances, such as psilocybin, under the guidance of a trained professional. This approach aims to enhance conventional therapy practices by inducing altered states of consciousness that can facilitate deep psychological insight and emotional processing. PAT occurs in three phases including preparation, administration, and integration.

Trauma-Informed Consultation

Trauma-informed approaches are now being utilized in many industries as a way to support better, serve or treat individuals and communities. I can provide consultation if you want to expand your knowledge of trauma-informed care, ensure that your policies and procedures are trauma-informed, or even begin adopted trauma informed practices in your workplace or industry.

Workshops and Trainings

I develop workshops and trainings based on theories of adult learning, understanding that learning is most effective when participants are actively involved in hands-on activities, discussions, and opportunities for collaboration with others.  Past workshops and trainings have included How to Combat Burnout, Teambuilding, Creating Effective and Cohesive Groups, Wellbeing 101, Trauma 101, and Illuminating Grief.  Click the button below to learn more. 

Clinical Supervision

Clinical supervision is a requirement for unlicensed mental health practitioners.  I currently provide clinical supervision towards the hour requirement in the state of California. My approach to supervision blends principles of trauma-informed care, strengths-based and empowerment practices, and theories of adult learning. I approach supervision with an understanding that it is a parallel process that usually mirrors dynamics that present in the therapeutic relationship between supervisees and the clients that they serve.

Process Groups

Traumatic events, both political and those directly affecting your employees, can affect morale. Process groups can be a way to provide crucial support for employee wellbeing and can be instrumental in combating burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma.

Process Group Focus Populations:

  • Healthcare Teams

  • Remote Employee Teams

  • Film and Television Cast and Crew

  • Post-Production Crew

"I had the pleasure of working with Shaina in 2018, during which time she served as my supervisor in the Behavioral Health Department of a Federally Qualified Health Center in Los Angeles. Shaina is an exceptional supervisor, with a clear vision, excellent communication skills, and a knack for fostering collaboration. She consistently provided constructive feedback that was both insightful and motivating. Under her guidance, I gained confidence both professionally and personally. Shaina's genuine care for her team and her dedication to helping each individual reach their highest potential are truly commendable. Her leadership and management style have significantly contributed to my success. I highly recommend Shaina for any role that requires strong supervisory skills and a commitment to excellence."
