Dr. Jones is great. I honestly never thought therapy was for me, but she helps me sort through my thoughts in a way i never thought possible. I highly recommend her.

Saying that Dr. Jones is great is probably not enough to cover how good she is. I feel comfortable in our sessions. I feel that she listens very intently. There are things that she points out that I am not entirely aware of. It's either something I probably tried to deny the existence of for a while or something I refused to know more about. Knowing those things makes changes.

She has a good way of stating her observations/feedback that has a good balance between (what I think is) gentle, and firm. She "calls me out" (for a lack of a better term) when needed. She doesn't just say what I want to hear.

I am far from perfect. I mean, I don't think we ever really get to 1000% perfect. But I feel like I have made some progress. I mean, I've learned how to deal with my anxiety. Sure, it still pops up here and there but I am now better at managing it. As for my boundaries, they are far from well-structured but I think they are much better than how they were before I started working with Dr. Jones.

Dr. Jones will identify between you and a happier life, and what is preventing that. Then she goes straight to solutions. She is not a Doctor who will tell you what you want to hear, she tells you what you need to hear. She is emphatic and caring.

Written by K.E. on Mar 06, 2022 after therapy with Shyra for 4 months on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, and parenting issues

Dr. Shyra is a joy to work with. She is competent and kind, while also being a straight shooter who isn’t simply all about “feeling good.” She is attentive and honest in her feedback, and often drops golden nuggets of wisdom into each conversation. Dr. Shyra is knowledgeable in many different areas of psychology, and was extremely helpful to me in sorting out some issues related to my daughter’s eating disorder and my own issue regarding forgiveness. Dr. Shyra is caring and spiritual, and has clearly done a lot of her own work in the realm of simply being human on this earth. I deeply appreciate the time I spent with her, and if I ever come back to this platform for therapy again, I will choose to work with her again.

I have been very lucky to be matched with Dr. Jones. She's a great professional and a great soul. I feel I could trust her from the beginning and I feel totally at ease during our sessions. I was scared of starting therapy and it's been the best decision this year. In fact, I now wish I had started years ago, but then, there's a time for everything and this may be the best time to do it. I feel listened to, understood and cared for during our sessions and I'm always looking forward to the next one.

I adore Dr. Jones. She is attentive and has helped me work through so much over the past few months. The most valuable thing about my time with her is she helps me navigate things in a thought process compatible with my own, and that’s only possible because she took the time to learn it.
