On today’s show, I had the pleasure of speaking with Shirin Peykar.
Shirin is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist specializing in Young Adults (18-40), Women’s Issues, Mindful Parenting, Couples Therapy and Divorce. She is also the Founder of the “Let’s Talk Divorce” Support Group.
Shirin was a go-getter from a very young age and put herself through college with aspirations for a career in psychology. Shortly after graduating, she fell in love, but the love she felt in return didn’t feel quite right. After her own personal experience in her high-conflict relationship and subsequent divorce, she’s decided to dedicate her career to helping others navigate the complex waters of emotional regulation and relationships.
Our conversation navigates between our shared experiences with emotional abuse, what part each partner plays in a failed relationship, rebuilding our own self-confidence, and how to make the most of finding a way… or making a new one after a relationship doesn’t work out.
Shirin now helps others build better relationships with others and themselves through her therapy practice.
