Shiraz Tata


I provide individual and group counseling to NIU students, supervision to trainees and some outreach to the larger NIU community. I love to work with persons from diverse backgrounds and create a safe space for them to share whatever is weighing on their minds or hearts.

Outside of work at NIU, I am involved in teaching meditation, doing social justice work, walking in nature and spending time with family and friends.

I provide individual and group counseling to NIU students, supervision to trainees at CCS and some outreach to the campus community as part of my half-time position at NIU. I have done research on issues related to acculturation in the Asian American community and have done outreach on many topics. I have expertise in working with a variety of diversity, transition, identity, abuse and loss issues. My areas of clinical interest include multicultural counseling, healing from trauma, family of origin and other relationship concerns. I use an integrative approach in counseling and relies on humanistic, interpersonal and cognitive-behavioral perspectives.
