Maira Munir is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and a Level 2 Certified Clinical Trauma Professional based in Raleigh, North Carolina. She offers individual therapy via telehealth to adolescents (16+) and 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.
