Nira Shah

Do you feel the weight, or big waves, of anxiety or low moods? Our work together can help you develop a sense of joy. Joy doesn't necessarily mean "happy" all the time; it means finding a sense of peace through both the good and the bad. Therapy with me can help attain this, with learning how to cope with your emotional distress in a meaningful way. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, life transitions, relationship difficulties, blocks of creativity, and racial/social equity and justice. I operate from a strong multicultural and compassionate lens. Our work together can help you navigate those waves.

I draw from holistic, cognitive behavioral, and trauma-informed approaches with a focus on mindfulness, compassion, and intersectionality. I believe that healing and adaptive coping mechanisms are within us all and I'm passionate about empowering clients to discover and build their inner strength, in a safe and compassionate space.

CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Compassion Focused Therapy, and Mindfulness based interventions, with attention to racial/cultural identity and intersectionality.



anxiety, depression, life transitions, relationships, stress, personal growth, and trauma.
