Everyone experiences life challenges and changes that can create stress, confusion, discomfort and pain. Because life isn’t perfect, some or many of them cause wounding. Therapy can help. We’ll laugh. We’ll cry. I invite you to take a journey to a safe and unique space for healing. I will share coping mechanisms to tolerate emotional distress to improve upon overall functioning.
As a graduate of New York University’s Silver School of Social Work, I began my experience working in New York County Family Court providing expert testimony to judges about children in foster care to facilitate permanency. While obtaining my clinical license I provided psychotherapy in community mental health centers.
Surviving the trauma of COVID-19 as well as with any other time of crisis, persons whom may be struggling rely on substance misuse resulting in relapse of co-occurring disorders, such as depression, anxiety and self-harm ( non suicidal self injury [NSSI]), I am here for you to process and provide alternative coping skills to improve your quality of life.

i’ve been working with mrs.kira for a while now and she’s been absolutely amazing. she’s so friendly and kind and very open/open-minded. i love what she does and she’s always so helpful, even when it’s hard for me to get my point across.

This was my first ever experience with therapy. So I had no idea what to expect. Kira was warm and welcoming and made me feel really comfortable from the get go. She made a point to get to know me first and expand from there. She gave me useful tools and insight into things I was doing/not doing. Overall it was a great first experience and has made me feel more comfortable seeking therapy.

She's very responsive and answers in a timely fashion. However she's not very available and not professional when canceling sessions. She seems like she's good for someone who's just starting out with therapy and has a flexible schedule not someone who's been in therapy and runs a company
