Announcement icon Due to COIVD 19, I am solely practicing telelhealth at this time. I am only seeing current clients via video or phone or via Teledaoc.
Shakira K O'Garro is not currently accepting new clients.
Perhaps you're just feeling down or nervous - maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or have recently been diagnosed with a serious illness. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support. In my therapy sessions I promote healing by maintaining a person centered focus by encouraging a positive outlook, the adoption of new attitudes, and fostering hope and healing. I have the empathy, understanding, personal and professional experience to help you cope and move forward.
I'm a licensed therapist in New York state (Licensed Mental Health Counselor/LMHC) with several years of experience counseling various groups of people which include: the terminally ill, people of color, those struggling with depression, anxiety, and self of esteem issues, and people who are experiencing difficult life transitions.
Your mental health and well-being is so important to me. I love helping people develop the tools they need to cope with all of life's challenges. I'd love to help you on your journey toward healing and self-discovery.
