Shirley is a wonderful person and therapist. She goes above and beyond. She is a great listener, provides wonderful advice and is kind, thoughtful and intelligent. She explains things well and is very easy to talk to and with. She is accessible in person, zoom and even answers text messages almost instantly. I am so lucky to have found her. She is a treasure and has helped me in many areas of my life and in many different ways. She is the best!!

I have seen numerous therapists over the years, and no one has ever helped or understood me the way Shirley has. She is compassionate and intuitive, and I feel truly heard by her. She has taught me valuable coping skills and helped with my confidence and self-esteem. I highly recommend her.

Shirley is so attentive and really understands the core of the issue at hand. She catches on to all of the characters involved very quickly. She always advises with the utmost insight, wisdom and compassion.

Shirley is the kindest, compassionate and most enlightening therapist you could find. With every visit you will walk away having learned something new to help get you through whatever life decided to throw at you. Shirley was a shining light in person and virtually during the pandemic. You will never find a better therapist than Shirley. I wish there was an option to give more than 5 stars!

Not only is Shirley Azoulai a superb psychotherapist - she's also a first class person who I consider a true friend and ally. Shirley is hardworking, very gentle, highly empathetic, whip-smart, and incisive - she is the Real Deal that you want in a therapist. Shirley was born to be a therapist and makes her patients feel special with her kindness and warmth. I love that she sees patients virtually or in person and that she has the flexibility of weekend appointments. I have referred clients to her and will refer many more because therapists like she are extremely hard to find!

Shirley is the first therapist I've gone to and I was extremely nervous my initial visit but she does a wonderful job at making you feel comfortable along with allowing your emotions to be valid and acceptable! I don't think I'd be in a good place mentally if it weren't for Shirley. I look forward to all of our appointments and I very much recommend her

Shirley is a wonderful therapist. Not only does she provide a calming and safe environment, but she also makes you feel heard and understood. She has given me valuable tools to manage my anxiety and has helped me better understand and move forward in my grief.

I took the time to research and find the right therapist and I am extremely glad I did! Shirley is incredibly easy to talk to and very understanding. She isn't judgmental and makes you feel at ease. I highly recommend her regardless but especially if you are feeling uneasy about therapy.

I have worked with other therapists before but never had the kind of enlightening experience that I have had with Shirley. She is sensitive and kind and seems to understand exactly what I mean, even when I don't quite know how to express myself. She helps me to feel better about myself and is working with me to develop strong self esteem and self advocacy skills. I give her a most glowing review.

I think you are lucky to find Shirley Azoulai if you are looking for counseling services. I highly recommend her to anyone who is facing challenges in life. I started working with Shiley about 6 months ago. After the first several sessions seeing her alone, my husband joined the session to restore the marriage and talk about the family dynamics. Ever since, she has been very supportive, compassionate, and great listener. From the first session, I immediately felt that she was the most honest, empathetic and connected therapist I have ever met. Now, I feel like I have known her my entire life. Her caring and sensitive approach towards our feelings and emotions, or anything arose in between sessions, transformed us to look at each other the more positive side of things and rebuild better communication skills. She offers very helpful guidance and suggestions too. If you feel stuck, do not wait for any longer. Just talk to her.

Situations that seem impossible to navigate and remain in one piece have become manageable with Shirley's counseling. I initially sought her guidance after my father received a terrible health diagnosis. She is the perfect balance of empathetic and constructive. Ultimately Shirley helped me address and improve other areas of my life such as my relationship, ability to cope, even work. She is always 100% present and focused on helping me. I cannot say enough kind words - her counseling is invaluable.

Shirley has been very helpful to me in helping me through any anxiety I might be feeling. I feel very fortunate to have found her as she offers great advice and has a very calming presence about her.

Shirley has been so incredibly helpful to me since I began seeing her in September. As my first therapist, she made this new experience very easy to get used to and see the full benefits of spending time with her. She shows the utmost compassion, empathy and care for whatever it is that troubles me, and gives great advice to best manage these difficulties. She really is such a genuine and kind-hearted person. When things are good, she is also very helpful by spending time discussing the positives or any other topic that arises. Outside of her skills and demeanor, Shirley is very accommodating and makes it clear that she is available to help outside of scheduled sessions with her. I would highly recommend Shirley to anyone who is seeking therapy and counseling services.

Shirley is a gem! My partner and I started seeing her to address communication issues in our relationship. She is a great listener, and really spends time getting to know the couple’s dynamic and each person’s history. In our case, she has been able to hone in on the original issues we were hoping to address, as well as dig deeper and get to the heart of more subconscious matters that play a part in our relationship. To that end, she is very perceptive, which helps my partner and I to explore things we may have not otherwise thought about. Shirley’s warm and compassionate personality has definitely helped me feel safe and comfortable in our interactions. Her guidance has been invaluable to our relationship, and my partner and I have made a lot of progress since we started working with Shirley. I highly recommend her!

My wife and I found Shirley while planning our wedding, during covid and trying to navigate this new world we all find ourselves in. While I wasn’t thrilled with the idea of therapy, my new wife and I thought it would be helpful in dealing with the sudden communication issues we found ourselves dealing with. Shirley has been so wonderful, understanding and compassionate. She is equipping us with new tools to deal with stress and refocus and re-prioritize our relationship. We consider ourselves very lucky to have found her, and couldn’t recommend her more, to any person or couple who finds themselves needing a little help in dealing with all the exciting adventures life has to offer.

I wasn't sure what to expect since it was going to be my first time in a therapeutic session. Dr. Azoulai has been nothing but amazing. She made me feel completely at ease discussing anything that was on my mind, and being able to let my guard down and express difficult emotions was a huge relief. Getting her feedback has shown me another aspect that I never noticed in myself before and noticing my difficulties with such calm and caring manner. We have insightful conversations. Her patience, understanding and guidance have enabled me to be more confident with myself and allowing me to respect myself more. She is so caring and flexible and understanding. The environment is also very relaxing and comforting. I would definitely recommend Life Quest Pursuits Counseling. Dr. Azoulai is a wonderful therapist and I am very glad to know she is there if I need any future help. Thank you!
