Shira Lee is very comforting and understanding. She explains different ways to handle stress and depression in detail and has helped me overcome some tough times in my life. I do strongly believe I'm better able to handle situations more easily due to our sessions.

I love my therapist, she is amazing unlike my last one. She listens as well as give great feedback. It's like talking to a friend; you won't even notice she's a stranger. I was always nervous about going back to therapysince my first time sucked but she's very kind and welcoming.

I love my visits with Shira Lee. I find that I learn a lot about myself and my emotions that I would not have if we did not speak. She is extremely professional and accommodating which I respect a lot. Asa young adult, I feel like Shira Lee is able to relate to me and understand my generation.
