My Approach to Helping

Are you sad, anxious, or overwhelmed? Dr. Shaye offers brief therapy to help you understand your feelings so you can quickly change your situation. Her approach to therapy promotes healthy relationships, reduces anxiety, and alleviates depression. Additionally, you gain insight into your thoughts and actions and will get to know yourself better. Resulting in self-awareness that leads to feelings of self-control of moods, actions, and day-to-day interactions.

Dr. Shaye offers tools to reduce stress, guilt, tension, muscle pain, stomach discomfort, and sleeplessness. You can build a new way of seeing the world, and see the world differently.

I embrace all types of diversity—age, culture, sexual orientation, etc. I ensure that each client knows their value and strength. Therapy is not about changing you, but about helping you be your best self.
