Meet with Shirley
My passion is to help you envision the best possible future for yourself and then to aid you on the journey of actualizing it, because I believe that everyone deserves a chance to become the best version of themselves. I specialize in working with adults that need support in life transitions, stress, depression, relationship issues, and Asian-American issues. Creating a warm, safe, understanding environment that promotes self-healing, and self-acceptance is my top priority, because it’s important that my clients feel assured that even when it seems like the entire world is against them, I will always be on their side.
My training at New York University has taught me to use strength based solutions while using evidence based practices, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. Combining this with my focus on client-centered therapy creates an empathetic, empowering session that allows you to take control of your life. When working together, I will actively listen to you, help you build your confidence, while also helping you develop the skills and tools you need to thrive in life.
When I’m not working, I enjoy watching NBA basketball, and being with animals.
