ABOUT SHIRA KFIR LCSW
I I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who’s great passion is working with women and couples on their journey to becoming parents and in the transition into being a family.
I received my Masters in Social Work at NYU and got licensed as an LCSW 10 years ago. I have had a private practice in both Newport Beach and Irvine for the past 8 years.
AS A THERAPIST
I work alongside my clients as they prepare to start a family, throughout the challenges of pregnancy and postpartum, and during the transition into parenthood. Early in my career, I developed an interest in helping mothers through this emotional and physical transition into motherhood. While so much of parenthood is full of joy and excitement, there are also difficult periods of time when parents seek guidance and direction. I am here to provide that much-deserved assistance to help make this journey as smooth and joy-filled as possible.
As a mother of three young children myself, I understand the challenges that women experience firsthand. I work hard to provide a supportive, nurturing, and judgment-free environment to help women and their families through this life phase. I follow a collaborative, goal-setting approach, focused on addressing the immediate stressors/issues and tackling these goals during weekly therapy sessions. Together, we will work toward helping you gain insight and awareness of your current life challenges. As your mentor and advisor, my goal is to listen carefully and provide continual support, guiding you on your journey to self-awareness and strength to tackle issues now and in the future.

Shira was so helpful in helping me throughout my pregnancy and after I delivered. She gave me great advise before I had my baby so that I felt prepared and had things ready when my baby girl arrived. A few years later and I am still using the useful tips she gave me on dealing with anxious situations. Thank you!!!
I want to thank Shira so much for all of her guidance in this difficult time for me and my husband. I am a first time mom and things were so overwhelming at first-we had so many questions and were trying to figure out how to survive each day. Shira helped me so much and gave me direction and so much support. I appreciate her calmness and guidance in this foggy time for me and my husband.
