Shakenya Burch, Ed.S LPC
I am originally from Birmingham, AL. On my free time I enjoy exploring the city with my friends and family. I love reading a good inspirational or romance novel. I am a devoted podcast listener and foodie. I have a love for Christ but i'm not judging if you don't. Mental health has been my passion since 2011 and I love that I get to help others manifest the life that they have always dreamed of. I have watched people come into my office broken, lost, and hopeless and leave rejuvenated and thriving. As someone who has seen her rock bottom, I know how difficult this journey can be. My therapy style is very intentional and personal. If you're ready to do the work, then i'm ready to assist you.

I will begin by saying that I am not a Christian counselor, but I am a counselor who is a Christian. That means I will only integrate your belief system into your therapeutic services to the extent that you desire. I believe it is important that that option is given to you, if you desire to have it. When I am not at work, I usually spend my free time working out, reading a good book, traveling, watching a movie, listening to music or a podcast, meal planning, or spending time with those who are closest to me. I’m originally from Florida, but I spent 2 years living overseas in an underprivileged community (2017-2019) and I learned so much about the resiliency of people. After my time overseas, I moved to Georgia and so far, it has been great here! I love helping people and seeing them reach goals that they have set for themselves. I want to collaborate with you to help you gain more insight about your life and gain a better understanding of what positive change would look like for you. Together, I know we can do this!
Tiera Couch, LCSW
I am originally from Detroit, Michigan. I enjoy good food, art, cultural experiences, hiking, reading, and exploring the city. Mental health is my passion and my purpose. I've been involved in this field since 2015. I know how it feels to LOOK strong, to LOOK like you have it all together, and to try to meet self-imposed, family, and/or societies impossible standards. My goal is to offer a safe space where you feel seen, a place that allows you to be uncensored and truly embrace your individuality unapologetically; as you define what a healthy life/mind means to you. My clinical approach can be described as relatable, validating, challenging, and honest. I’m ready to meet you where you are and support you as you meet your goals.
Patricia Maul-Jones, Ph.D
Loving life and living out loud is what I ascribe to do. I was born in St. Louis, MO but spent most of my adult life in the San Francisco, Bay Area of California. In my free time I enjoy dancing and acting and I am usually performing with a dance group or in a play at any given time. I also love to travel and I have touched 6 of the 7 continents including living in Liberia, West Africa for 4 ½ years. Needless to say, I have seen a lot and experienced a lot and I bring that wealth of wisdom into my therapy of empowerment. I am also an open-minded believer in God with a heavy background in Biblical studies. I have a way of transforming your difficult/complex situations into simple, resolvable solutions. I am a calm, loving, funny, insightful therapist. Our sessions will feel like a warm embrace that will leave both of us feeling reformed, inspired and enlighten.
