About Shirin

I would like to congratulate you on taking an important step to achieve your goals. I am a client-centered and passionate therapist who will empower and encourage you to move toward your happier life. Life can challenge us and you may struggle to manage a healthy balance while dealing with difficulties.

Together we can analyze, brainstorm, and focus on solutions that 
apply to your very unique situation. I can help you navigate your relationship issues and set

achievable realistic goals. If you might need help processing the grief of a loved one, or a relationship I can help. Life transformation and adopting new positive habits are doable. If you are suffering from any health complications, or life issues I got your back. I look forward to seeing you grow and being there for you while we navigate your therapy journey.
