Shira H-L, LCAT, PsyD, LP

“My primary philosophy is to treat individuals by meeting them where they’re at, not enforcing rigid techniques, and follow their lead. Additionally, it is incredibly important to me to provide a holding and supportive environment, to help them gain perspective and learn more about their inner selves, desires, and goals.”

I work with young adults and adults between the ages of 18-45 from all different walks of life.

I work with people on a wide range of issues including, but not limited to:

  • Anxiety

  • Couples/Relationship Issues

  • Depression

  • Mood Disorders

  • Postpartum

  • PTSD

  • Self Image Issues

If I have never been to therapy before, what should I expect? How do I know if I should go, and how do I start?

I like to tell all my clients when they start working with me that there is no one format; you are not a cookie cutter situation. If you have felt like you need or want some support in your struggles, we’ll start by sharing what brings you to therapy, what your expectations of the process are, and your goals. My primary goal in starting our work together is to build a trusting relationship and provide a safe space for you to share in.
