About me

I am a licensed psychotherapist for individuals and couples, yoga instructor and a certified Movement Analyst from the Laban Institute. I hold a Masters Degree in Clinical Social Work from New York University and postgraduate training in Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy. I've worked with pregnant women, their families and birth community in New York City for a decade and made a valuable contribution in the Birthing community in NYC on the topics of anxiety, perinatal depression, trauma, relationship and movement. I am the co-founder of TrueThriver, a private psychotherapy practice in midtown, where I works with individuals and couples.

How I work with parents

Psychotherapy: I work with parents (male and/or female) at my clinic TrueThriver. We meet once or twice a week.
My work is to accompany you through challenging feelings and life phases. Together, with care and respect, we will unpack who you are and how you function in the world. This is a very active process where we create a space to slow down and build insight into how to achieve your desires. Seeking help requires courage and starting the process shows your strength and readiness for change. Finding the right person to talk to can be a daunting, so we offer a free consultation to help you decide. For more info:https://truethriver.com/

Prenatal/Postnatal Yoga classes: we meet at your home or group settings (see my website for schedule https://www.shaharlion.com/ ).
Expecting couples workshops, at your home and or at various locations (see my website to for more info: https://www.shaharlion.com/new-events).
