ABOUT
YOLONDA

It's good to meet you! 

Accepting new clients

We often cannot choose the challenges that we face and can become frustrated and overwhelmed by them. If you are experiencing struggles with various relationships, as well as communication concerns, I can help you explore barriers and work on new ways to approach them while examining how you can learn from these challenges in order to become a better you.

 

I am experienced working with adults, children, adolescents, families/parents and well-versed in providing gender-affirming mental healthcare. My professional background includes substance use, foster care and adoption, inpatient psychiatric care and community case management. Therapy treatment is integrative and consists of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Motivational Interviewing, Psychodynamic and Solution Focused Therapy.

 

A bit of what you can expect is a genuine experience tailored to who YOU are. I like to laugh and have fun in sessions-to foster joy in the therapy experience too. I encourage and support you being your own guide and assist when you ask or when appropriate. I will never claim to know your story better than you do.
