Introducing Shira Hearn

Portrait of Shira Hearn, MA, AMFT Contact Us Now! Shira's Background

My name is Shira Hearn, MA, and I'm a Registered Associate MFT (#101884) under the supervision of Morella Hammer, MA, LMFT (#46762).

I started out my professional life working in technology, and after more than decade of working in the business world, I realized that I needed a way to better express who I was.

Inspired by my own journey in therapy, I returned to university to become a therapist myself.  I have undergraduate degrees in Information Technology and Psychology and a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Fuller Seminary in Pasadena.

Being a therapist is not just a calling, it is also my passion.  I am always reminded of what a privilege it is to be invited into others' lives, and to be present through pain, change and difficult times.

My Specialty

As a therapist I use a variety of modalities, but I find myself most often using Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).  I focus on treating anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationship problems.  In addition, I also specialize in treating adolescents and their families.  I am certified in Prepare/Enrich® and trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy.
