Shira is an attachment-based psychotherapist and mindfulness educator who is deeply committed to helping people integrate traumatic experiences, adversity and dysfunctional relationships into secure, resilient narratives. With over 11 years of clinical experience, Shira has extensive training in Emotion Focused Therapy, the Gottman Method, mindfulness meditation and interpersonal neurobiology.
Shira's work with couples and individuals centers around uncovering the inner scaffolding of habitual conflict, co-dependency, and complex trauma. Shira also has a special focus on treating attachment injuries in adult children of severely mentally ill parents (who suffer with borderline personality disorder, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and narcissistic personality disorder).
As the daughter of a treatment-resistant schizophrenic mother, Shira found her way to psychology with the imperative to make meaning out of her own traumatic experiences as a child and to support adults recover from the legacy of insecure relationships.
Shira is currently available for online therapy sessions but maintains an office in Santa Monica.
