I’ve had a few therapists throughout the years, and Doctor Striar is the best – particularly for couples.

I am in my thirties. I reached out to Dr. Striar because I needed help developing a more positive outlook. Dr. Striar has helped me identify extreme thought patterns that were increasing my anxiety and preventing me from seeing things objectively. We worked on several exercises aimed at avoiding those negative thoughts and learning to live in the moment. I now have a lot less stress and have made noticeable improvements in my life. She’s an excellent therapist and listener who will challenge you in a friendly way so that you can discover the underlying thought patterns that are holding you back.Male, 30s

Dr. Striar is as good as it gets…Dr. Striar isn’t just about talk therapy, she has the gift of actively helping you zero in on the real root of the problem, where it stems from and how to modify that behavior to help you move forward. In addition to my being a patient, my husband (then fiancée) and I saw her together for a little over half a year for couples counseling before tying the knot.

I was a patient of Sharna Striar… and I must say that a big chunk of my well-being today is a result of her guidance and the amount I have learned about myself. She is an expert in her field. She saved me from a major disaster by helping me to get out of an abusive relationship and fixing the reasons that got me there in the first place. She then helped me through the problems of anxiety and depression. I was able to come through and reach a happy place without using any drugs. I am so grateful I found her. —Female, 20s

Sharna was a wonderful facilitator in couple’s therapy. And, despite the uncoupling of my relationship, I continued to work with her on personal issues. She’s smart, caring, really committed… She can be extremely empathetic but won’t let you get away with anything.Couple, 30s
