Shaina McPhetridge, MA, MFTi, RYT
Shaina McPhetridge is a Marriage and Family Therapy Registered Intern and Registered Yoga Teacher, specializing in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Mindfulness and somatically-focused therapies. She has numerous years of experience teaching mind-body wellness through yoga and healthy living, as well as several years of clinical experience with The Center for Individual and Family Counseling and private practice. Before graduating from Antioch University in 2015 with a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology, Shaina worked in both higher education and the health and fitness world coaching individuals and teams in pursuing their goals toward living healthier, more robust lives. She continues her relationship with the health and fitness world today, and integrates those experiences into her therapy practice, knowing that a healthier body contributes powerfully to the healing of the mind.
Shaina has been fortunate to treat a diverse population of people with varying difficulties, and believes that holding a space for and guiding people through healing their past trauma is the foundation of a successful treatment program. She primarily works with adults, groups, and couples struggling with the effects of trauma, PTSD, anxiety, disordered eating and body image, behavioral addiction, codependency and relational conflict. She tailors her therapy approach according to an individual or group’s unique needs, meeting her clients with authenticity, candor, and empathy, and taking great care to honor both the courage and the time given to the process of healing.
