Work With Me

The S.T.U.C.K. Method was created for people dedicated to making big shifts in their lives towards happiness and emotional well-being. The S.T.U.C.K. Method gives people everything they need to regain control and create personal transformations in their lives and in their relationships. The S.T.U.C.K. Method improves the lives of those committed to the path of personal well-being.


Not everyone is ready to get unSTUCK. Getting unSTUCK takes commitment to yourself. It takes time. And it takes energy.

I only work with people who are ready and willing to make this commitment to themselves.  I only work with people who are ready to invest in themselves. I only work with people who believe personal transformations are possible. I only work with people who are ready to carve out the time to do the work necessary to make big shifts happen in their lives. I only work with people who are ready to take action now. Are you ready?

“What makes Shira such an effective coach is her willingness to be human and let people see the imperfect side of her. She offers excellent role modeling for so many of us who are afraid to let our imperfections show, but know that real growth comes from being willing to take chances and to sometimes fail.” Becky, Sunnyvale, CA 
“Shira has a gentle way of guiding me out of my suffering. Her non-judgmental attitude helps to open my heart so that I can be true to myself and consider which alternate perspectives to my ‘stuck’ stories I may have not considered. I have learned that I can lose my grip on my stories and even find relief from them. Shira’s spirit is simply inspirational.” Hadas, Israel 
“I appreciate how Shira is genuine and authentic showing us how you she uses the method, how it is difficult for her sometimes, reminding us that we are all human.  She isn’t preaching what we should do and that it will make it all better.  Rather she is doing it with us and showing us that it can be challenging but worth practicing and trying over and over again.  I appreciate it when someone is alongside me and relatable rather than feeling they are preaching down because they have complete control over their life, leaving me to wonder why can’t I do the same.” – Susan, New York, NY 

“Working with Shira was a complete eye opener and joy. Not only did she teach me a more positive way of dealing with my ‘stuck’ situations, she provided me with a common language between me and my wife (who also went through Shira’s program). This journey provided me with important insights and self-awareness I never thought possible.  It was one of the most useful and powerful experiences I have ever gone through in my life.” – Yitzhak, Israel

“Shira has such a straightforward, doable system that it was a pleasure to work with her.” – Sara, Cleveland, Ohio

“Shira helped me realize valuable insights as I learned how to deal and process through some of my ‘stuck’ spots. I would highly recommend working with her.” – Baila, Jerusaem, Israel

“What I received most with working with Shira is self-awareness. I’ve learned to catch myself many times a day when I found myself “stuck”. I’ve become more deliberate with my thinking and less reactive. Learning how to process getting unstuck in the moment has become almost like a daily habit.” – Christine, Phila, PA

“When we get stuck in life, we often create suffering for others as well as ourselves. Learning to free oneself from this pattern is at the heart of The S.T.U.C.K. Method. Shira Taylor Gura has created a simple acronym S.T.U.C.K as a process for looking deeply at the triggers, thoughts, emotions and stories that we tell ourselves — some of which have the potential of becoming a lifetime script.” – Jerry Braza, Ph.D., author of The Seeds of Love: Growing Mindful Relationships  

“The Stoics of Ancient Greece cautioned us to check in with our emotions and consider whether each of our emotional reactions is serving us or has the potential to harm us (or others). In the 1950s and 1960s, psychiatrist Aaron Beck and clinical psychologist Albert Ellis introduced new types of talk therapies that clinicians may employ with clients, cognitive therapies, in which the connection between thoughts and emotions is explored and thoughts are modified to enhance mental health. Today we can engage in such self-examination without a therapist. Shira Taylor Gura presents a simple, step-by-step, and easy-to-remember process through which we may notice and gain control of our emotions, thereby enhancing our well-being. Several other do-it-yourself cognitive therapy systems exist, but Ms. Gura’s is particularly simple to implement and memorable. Try her approach once and I think you will be S.T.U.C.K. on it.” –Gretchen M. Reevy, PhD, editor of The Praeger Handbook on Stress and Coping and author of Encyclopedia of Emotion.

“The S.T.U.C.K. Method has been life-transforming for me in my roles as family member, friend, and physician. Each of us can use this powerful technique to guide our thoughts and emotions, and thereby our bodies, away from unnecessary, heart pounding distress and towards mindful, health-promoting calm.”  Shoshana T. Melman, MD, Pediatrician & Director, Foster Care Program; CARES Institute

“Challenging one’s automatic beliefs and interpretations, along with finding self compassion for themselves, is key to living a life of peace, joy and freedom. Shira Taylor Gura finds a simple way to help people find new ways of thinking, not only about challenging situations they may face, but also about embracing a new way of relating to themselves.” – Joanna F. Kleinman, LCSW, Creator of the “Dethroning Your Inner Critic” series and Founder of The Center For Extraordinary Relationships
