Chad Shubin

Chad Shubin, LMFT has worked at Wasatch Behavioral Health since 2007 as a Marriage and Family Therapist. Currently Chad is the Program Manager of the Wasatch County Family Clinic in Heber.  He enjoys working with families that have children who struggle with social interactions and/or have a hard time behaviorally.

Chad believes that sometimes the best therapist a child can have is their own parent. He works to help parents take on the role of “their own family therapist” and strives to help parents better understand their child’s behavior. Focus is placed on providing parents with a spectrum of useful and dynamic tools to use in their therapeutic parenting. Through this approach it is hoped that parents can develop themselves to the point that they can assess each situation. Then based on that assessment with their new found understanding apply the tools they feel will produce the best possible outcome in each moment. An important element of Chad’s practice is focusing on interventions that will not only help produce the best possible outcome now, but will also help the child and family over the course of a lifetime.
