Lateela Burns

(MS, LPC)

About Me

Hello and welcome to Better Help! My name is Lateela Burns. I am a licensed professional counselor in Atlanta. I have worked as a counselor and case manager for a little over 10 years. Many of my clients have experienced or are experiencing depression, anxiety, stress-related illness, chronic pain, self-esteem issues, and other types of crisis. I enjoy working with younger adults; however, I have a great deal of experience working with older adults especially when it comes to coping with chronic health issues, caregiver strain, cognitive changes, and grief.

In therapy, I like to use cognitive-behavioral and solution-focused techniques. I believe that a therapist should serve as a guide to help you navigate the highs and lows along this journey that we call life. We all have many lessons to learn about ourselves, and I want to help you recognize and use you strengths in order to become your best self. Thank you for taking the initiative to start your journey. I look forward to working with you.

So far she provides a safe space, non judgmental and actually makes me feel like my thoughts and feelings matter. I can say that I can see where I’m going in this journey! I really like her!

Lateela is amazing! She has helped me through some terrible times, marriage issues, and just personal issues that I needed to work on. She makes great points, and gives excellent advice on what goals to work on and what steps to take to better yourself.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with Lateela as my counselor. She has provided helpful tools and helped me begin to open up about how I am feeling, not only with her, but with those around me. I am very grateful for my time and growth. Thank you Lateela!

I just started counseling but so far I’m very pleased. Lateral Burns checks on me periodically and it’s more than appreciated.
