Get unSTUCK!

√  Are you feeling stuck?

√  Is there a certain someone or something in your life that is constantly pushing your buttons?

√  Do you feel out of control when you get triggered?

√  Do you feel like you don’t know how to respond to people when they set you off?

√  Do you sometimes feel depressed that you can’t figure a way to just be happy?

√  Do feel like you are the only one in the world getting stuck?

√  Are you looking for emotional support, but don’t feel like you need therapy?


I used to feel stuck all of the time!

You see, I did not grow up with a method to help me get unstuck from everyday emotional stumbles or big, complex issues and because of that my relationships suffered and I struggled.

I would live my life from one stuck situation to the next!

When I started blogging in 2012, I began to realize how my stuck stories were apparently blinding me from reality and preventing me from accessing my inner wisdom. I knew there must have been another way! I knew I needed something I could rely upon to help me get unstuck everyday!

I created The S.T.U.C.K. Method™ to promote emotional well-being and I have never looked back since.

I now know I have the power to choose to get unSTUCK!

It’s a completely and entirely new way of living.

I learned how to get unSTUCK and so can YOU!


Can you imagine what your life would look like if you knew how to get yourself unSTUCK?

Getting unSTUCK is The. Best. Thing. In. The. World!

Bring The S.T.U.C.K. Method into Your Life!

Process through The S.T.U.C.K. Method, one “stuck” story at a time.

It’s really that simple.

But, you have to do that work.

You can’t just think about it.

In the beginning it’s a bit hard, because it’s like walking through uncharted territory. It’s unfamiliar, and you don’t really know how or where to start.

And that’s where I come in.

I can help you.

When I coach you, I help you break down those “stuck” stories into bite size pieces so we can look at, explore, and investigate them into clear and manageable pieces. I not only guide you to get unSTUCK, I help you find opportunities for each of your “stuck” spots.

It’s an awesome, awesome journey.

(*But, don’t take my word for it. Take a moment to read through all the testimonials on this website!)

“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 

“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 

“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
