Professional statement

Maira Munir is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) based in North Carolina. She offers individual therapy to adults, many who are from culturally diverse backgrounds. She strives to build connections and empower her clients through education and integrative understandings of the self, clinical intuition and the human touch. As a trauma-informed Therapist, Maira is sensitive to the influence of past experiences on present challenges, and works closely with her clients to reframe the narrative of their life in a way that increases self-confidence and compassion.

Maira's approach to therapy draws from various clinical orientations when creating a personalized therapeutic experience for each client. She particularly loves using EMDR, movement and breath-work, as she believes inviting somatic experiences in the therapy space is not only necessary for wholeness, but generative. Her flexible and interactive style of relating is person-centered, insight-oriented, evidence-based and has an eclectic blend of eastern and western healing practices. She gleans from client identity, values and strengths to create the foundation for therapy. She believes healing is a process of curiosity, mindfulness and bringing the mind, heart and body into unity. Maira also integrates spirituality when requested.

Maira holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Master of Social Work degree. She is a Master Trainer in ASIST: Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training and enjoys teaching communities about identifying suicide risk and providing helpful intervention methods to those who may be struggling.


Message to clients

As a second-generation immigrant with a bicultural identity, I am keenly aware that talking about mental health concerns can feel confusing and isolating. Navigating the intersections of our identities, values, relationships and experiences can feel like we constantly pulled in many different directions and struggle to feel at peace. Many of my clients experience emotional pain, whether their relationships feel disconnected, stress and self-criticism are impacting confidence, or unresolved past experiences hinder the ability to live fully.

My passion is to encourage curiosity about oneself as a necessary part of mental health and overall wellness. My passion is to inspire curiosity about oneself and revive the path of intentional and heartful living, particularly with culturally and ethnically marginalized communities, many of whom are accustomed to living in survival mode. I am dedicated to cultivating a warm and trusted space, where my clients feel empowered to glean from their innate wisdom and make meaningful changes in their life. I value nurturing strong connections with my clients to reach the depths of health, healing and inner peace. This is the greatest honor for me as a Therapist, and human.

Your story is unique, and your life matters! Finding balance, feeling better and restoring wholeness is within your reach, and taking that first step towards therapy can help you achieve this. If you sense that my approach may benefit you, or you just have questions, feel free to send me a message to connect.
