Dr. Burkhalter’s practice wisdom has supported me through consultation to set professional goals and create standards for accountability. Her knowledge as a mental health professional has supported me with addressing potential roadblocks and she has given me skills to address those roadblocks head on. She offers great support and I would highly recommend her to others.

Working with Dr. Burkhalter made a positive impact on my life at a time when I was facing multiple personal crises. Her grounding approaches, practical advice and genuine empathy were tremendously helpful in that I was able to locate my own empowerment and agency within, even while navigating such a difficult time. Dr. B helped me take hold of and shape my own narrative. The tools she gives on a weekly basis are accessible and pragmatic. Most of all, perhaps, I always felt and continue to feel important to her.
