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 feel listened to, understood and cared for during our sessions and I'm always looking forward to the next one.
