im glad you're here
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Shakyra uses evidenced-based modalities like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as the foundation of her therapeutic practice. This allows her to reach clients where they are. Understanding how challenging ‘adulting’ can be, whether you are 28 or 58, Shakyra aims to help clients compartmentalize and directly address life’s conflicts.
Additionally, she aims to normalize conversations about mental health and therapy in underserved and underrepresented communities, specifically among African Americans between the ages of 13-40.

To my potential client,
I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for the opportunity to work with you as your therapist. First and foremost, it is an honor and privilege to be a part of your therapeutic journey. I truly believe in the power of therapy and have seen firsthand how it can transform lives. The focus of this practice is your life transition and improvement, not the accolades that qualify me to help you make them; I am here to provide support and guidance during difficult times and to witness the growth and progress that therapy can bring.
Growing up, I was always the friend that people sought advice from; the “therapist friend.” I knew very early on that I wanted a career in a helping field, specifically mental health. I also knew that I wanted to normalize talking about and communicating feelings with people whom I relate to. I have a deep passion for helping people overcome challenges and live fulfilling lives, so I am committed to our work together. I’m here to offer non-judgmental support by always prioritizing your well-being and working to create an environment where you can explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences.
My approach to coaching and therapy is grounded in empathy, authenticity, and respect for each client's unique experiences. With this, I encourage you to share your truth openly and honestly. As we build a therapeutic alliance, know that I am here to help you navigate any obstacles that may arise. During your journey, you may have feelings of frustration and sadness, and that’s ok! You will develop various skills to cope with new and internalized feelings.
I am proud of you for integrating therapy into your self-care regimen. Thank you again for entrusting me with your care and choosing Timeless Therapeutic Services.
