Chasity Burke MS, LPC, NBCCH
I knew when I was 14 years old that I wanted to work in the counseling field and always felt God pulling me to help others and that desire and passion has continued to grow. I have been blessed beyond measure to have had so many unique and amazing people cross my path and have been an active participant in their healing and journey to attain peace, freedom, and clarity.
I have experience working with children, families, and adults. I have assisted many survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, physical/emotional abuse, children with intellectual disabilities and sensory processing disorders, geriatric clients that are in various stages of Dementia, and have had the privilege to help clients with more severe mental illness such as Schizophrenia, Borderline Personality Disorder, adults and children struggling with suicidal ideations and self-harming behaviors, homicidal ideations, and visual/auditory hallucinations as well as experience assisting people that have been fighting addiction.
I have a background and training in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Grief training, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Anxiety, Depression, Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling, and I specialize in Rapid Resolution Therapy. My background in Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling has given me the opportunity to assist clients and families with intellectual disabilities as well as provided me with more insight into physical disabilities and limitations and how they have an impact at an emotional level and can have a profound effect on that individual and their loved ones.
Rapid Resolution Therapy is a beautiful way to assist people in healing painlessly, and what I mean by healing painlessly is that with traditional talk therapy the healing process takes several weeks, months, and sometimes years to feel relief from problematic thoughts, emotions, habits and behaviors, and it is often a painful process. RRT is a trauma informed approach that does not re-traumatize the person or require repeated exposure for the person to heal from the effects of the trauma they experienced. People feel immediate relief after just one session!
I feel very passionate about my new endeavor fully focused on empowering women and helping them to Embrace their light and step into their power! Society has been programming women to dim their inner light creating shyness, self judgement, resentment, and shame. Additionally, we know that there have been life experiences that have inhibited our ability to embrace our passions, make healthy connections, achieve our goals, be body positive and enjoy our sexuality. To this effect, utilizing the revolutionary healing methods of Rapid Resolution Therapy created by Dr. Jon Connelly, Embrace is designed to enhance personal fulfillment, and to engage the psyche in promoting strength.
