I've been seeing Shira since 2016 and the effects have been profound: professionally and personally, I've grown and achievedgoals that felt like idle dreams before. I've gained tools to appropriately structure my time and to take my aspirations seriously. I couldn't ask for a more genuine and safe environment to discuss my innermost thoughts and continue working towards my goals.

About Shira Lahav

My integrated approach to psychotherapy fosters reflection and self-awareness, permitting clients to express themselves openly in whatever manner they choose. In using this approach, I am able to work with clients in a comforting, non-judgmental environment, providing diagnoses as well as therapeutic care. My focus in treatment is to understand you as a whole person, to uncover with you the root cause of desires, aversions, and patterns of behavior that may be holding you back. In the process of undergoing therapy, you will learn to identify problems while also understanding and applying their solutions. Ultimately, these skills will lead you to a more meaningful life and provide you with healthier ways to communicate. My style is interactive and applies both verbal and creative techniques to access the unconscious. As an active listener, I’ll structure personalized sessions customized to your unique needs.

I have been working with Shira for 6 years now, and I can’t imagine working with anyone else. I have found many therapists to be so clinical writing down names for their own memory, and I find it hard to openup in that environment. You will never find Shira with a clipboard. She sits and has an equal sided conversation filled with compassion and empathy. While feeling with her clients, Shira is able to give a broader perspective leaving you with a fuller understanding of what’s happening in your life. I could not give her a higher rating.

Shira is really warm and I immediately trusted her during our first session. She listened to me with empathy. Shira has a unique approach to processing things with me. I look forward to working with her more...

I’ve been seeing Shira for the last three years to help me with anxiety, public speaking, as well as interpersonal relationships. Since I’ve been working with her, I have been able to manage my anxiety much better, incorporated healthy habitsj to my life, and learned that I deserve to set boundaries in relationships and how to do that. I am so grateful to have Shira as a major support in my life and someone I can talk to about anything.
