Welcome! My name is Yianna and I am a bilingual (Greek\ English) licensed professional counselor (LPC) in Washington DC, and a licensed mental health counselor (LHMC) in Florida.
A few fun facts about me:
1- I grew up in a Big Fat Greek Family
2- I played soccer for over 16 years
3- I am a New Kids on the Block Fan
I have over 10 years’ experience working in the mental health field. I have worked in a variety of settings including ACT team clinical outreach, acute inpatient\ intensive outpatient settings and ER crisis assessments. Although that seems like a mouthful, it simply means that I have had experience working with a broad range and severity of clinical issues. I have worked with all age ranges of clients from children to the geriatric population. Currently I am working as a lead clinical assessor for crisis psychiatric evaluations. I also facilitate weekly group therapy for the adolescent population aging 10-17.
My therapeutic approach is primarily person-centered, multicultural and solution focused integrated approach. This means I begin where you are and tailor the treatment approach to your needs while being compassionate to how your individual cultural identities and lifestyle choices affects your experience.
I would describe my style as warm, supportive and compassionate, and I am ready to help you tackle your struggle head-on. Collaboration is important - together we can work on establishing concrete goals and steps for you to help overcome your current obstacles. I believe in taking time and working on wellness slowly, holistically, and consistently. Just as physical health takes time and consistency, so does mental health. I look forward to helping and guiding you in any way I can!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Gianoula " Yianna" Sideris. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
I am grateful for Yianna's support and guidance through this grieving process.
