  • About Shira 

    Shira Pomrantz, LCSW

    Shira Pomrantz is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a graduate from Rutgers University School of Social Work. Shira serves as the director for Project SARAH, a NJ statewide program servicing those affected by domestic violence and sexual abuse, where she was also a therapist for many years . Shira works with women and teens in the context of family and individual therapy. She offers sessions in English or Spanish, and works with people who experience the following:

    Anxiety/Depression

    Self-harming behaviors

    Panic attacks

    Eating disorders

    Friction with family or friends

    Emotional pain

    Loss

    Trauma

    One of the primary modalities Shira uses in her treatment is the Internal Family Systems model (IFS). She also utilizes the Structural Family Systems model within her work with families. Shira works from the belief that “all parts are welcome”, and when we come to a place of compassion for even the parts of us which seem most difficult to embrace, healing can occur. This experience is what helps us be the best version of ourselves.

     

    It is Shira’s goal to create a therapeutic environment where individuals can arrive with curiosity, to learn more about how their internal system works and each part’s positive intention for themselves. This will allow them to safely process the pain which burdens the more vulnerable parts of their systems.
