Hi there! My name is Shira Collings (she/they). I am a feminist, neurodiversity affirming, queer and trans affirming, fat affirming, and disability justice aligned therapist. I am passionate about supporting people in living a life that is aligned with their true values, and healing from both external and internalized oppression that may be impacting their well-being. My therapeutic approach is primarily based in person-centered and feminist approaches. This means I strive to create a space in which clients can express their full, authentic selves and share their stories without shame or judgment. I also have training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. Additionally, I regularly incorporate self-compassion, expressive arts, philosophy and pop culture, and self-advocacy skills into my approach.

Shira Collings Practice Description
My specializations include eating disorders, disordered eating, and body image, as well as neurodiversity affirming therapy, LGBTQ+ affirming therapy, grief and loss, and trauma, including religious trauma. As a neurodivergent, queer diet culture dropout myself, I know firsthand the impact that ableism, cisheterosexism, and anti-fatness can have on our mental health. I believe that we should never have to heal from the trauma and oppression that we face in this world alone. I would be honored to be a part of your journey.
