About me

Hi there! My name is Shira Collings (she/they). I am a feminist, neurodiversity affirming, queer and trans affirming, fat affirming, and disability justice aligned therapist. I am passionate about supporting people in living a life that is aligned with their true values, and healing from both external and internalized oppression that may be impacting their well-being. Some of my areas of specialization include eating disorders and disordered eating, body image, neurodiversity, grief and loss, and trauma.

My therapeutic approach is primarily based in person-centered and feminist approaches. This means I strive to create a space in which clients can express their full, authentic selves and share their stories without shame or judgment. I also have training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. Additionally, I regularly incorporate self-compassion, expressive arts, philosophy and pop culture, and self-advocacy skills into my approach.

I would be honored to be part of your journey. I look forward to getting to know you and collaborating on the path toward healing and liberation!
