Byalinah Shakir-Burgess, LCMHC

I have over 20 years of experience in mental health. I am trained in EMDR, Hypnotherapy, military counseling, and (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) CBT. I enjoy using humor to ease tension and lighten the mood, as I build rapport and help people feel supported. When working with clients, I help them identify natural support systems, set healthy boundaries, develop coping skills, gain work/life balance and process trauma. I have a holistic collaborative approach to care focusing on building resiliency using active listening, empathy and unconditional positive regard.
Treatment areas include: EMDR, Hypnotherapy, Major Life Changes such as first-time parents, divorce, helping students prepare for and adjust to college, and more, including: Grief • Anxiety • Bipolar Disorder • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) • Depression • PTSD/Trauma • Family/Parenting Therapy • Parent/Child Concerns
