Mental Health Professional


My name is Shir, and I am a graduate of the master's program in Couple and Family Therapy at Nova Southeastern University. I took Collaborative Divorce class two years ago and have worked with Dr. Randy Heller for over two years as an administrator and a facilitator in her Pro Bono Collaborative Divorce Project for Veterans. The project was developed in conjunction with Mission United - Legal Aid for veterans and their spouses transitioning to divorce to assist them in going through this process more amicably, outside of court. In the past year, I had the opportunity to practice applying what I have learned about the role of the mental health professional and a child specialist in a few cases that we were able to complete successfully.
My goal is to get involved within the collaborative community and expand my experience working with families.
My approach is Bowen driven, with the overarching goal to (a) reduce the overall level of relationship anxiety in the family system and (b) to introduce increased abilities to think about how the family operates and move clients to a different level of understanding themselves and the people around them.
