I've been a therapist for a lot of years and have a lot of vary diverse experience ranging from individual, couple/relationship, inpatient and outpatient therapy and even training as a hostage negotiator. I've been a certified hypnotherapist, have a background in spiritual counseling as well. As such, I'm not limited to one approach to helping my clients but can offer multiple approaches that fits the individual the best. I have expertise in both mild and severe mental health related issues. While I don't believe that I have all of the answers, I am confident that I can provide ideas, methods, and approaches that are probably very new or different than what you have already currently experienced. My goal for therapy is to find what works best for you, in order to get you feeling and functioning better sooner rather than later.

He is wonderful
This guy just knows how to listen and is someone you can just talk to. Highly recommend because he is just a regular guy nothing supper but he does have awesome things to suggest. He has equipped me with the mental tools to tackle my challenges.
Steve is great and has a lot of words of wisdom to share. He helped me through my issues and incorporates my faith into my healing.
A good listener
I really enjoy talking with Steve about the challenges I'm facing. You can tell how much he loves working with clients. Big plus that he has appointments available in the evenings & on the weekends!
I knew immediately that Steve was going to be able to help me. He was honest about his unconventional approach from the off, and that put me at ease. I’m really looking forward to the coming weeks of my therapy journey with Steve.
Stephen has been wonderful. Highly skilled and great to work with. I get a sense that he is genuinely invested in my health and therapy outcomes.
Steve has an amazing way of centering your thoughts and remove the clutter that’s holding you back in life. Since I’ve met with him I’ve been able to understand how to face my challenges big or small and it’s made making decisions simpler with peace of mind.
Steve has been incredible in helping me figure out my ongoing anxiety- even after just a few sessions together, he has given me new perspective, insight and tools to reflect on and use in day-to-day life space between sessions. I am so happy to have connected with Steve through Better Help, and am excited to continue working together!
I would recommend Steven Yates to any christian who has a lot of questions , or needs any help in their walk with the Lord Jesus.
Steve is outstanding and a treat to work with,
Steve always made me feel very comfortable in his sessions and was very understanding, empathetic and came up with amazing solutions to problems. He provided some great extra material as a food for thought after our sessions were over. I am very glad I got to meet such a cool person who is so good at his job. Best of luck <3
Steve is awesome we learn from each other, I used to fear my therapy sessions now I look forward to them as I am getting serious help and have found a new friend to talk to who understands me and listens.
He is understanding and gives me recommendations on what to do to better my mental health.
Steve is an amazing counselor. His approach is different than most and I really appreciate that.
Steve Yates has been amazing. He listens, cares and is super responsive. In a few short sessions he has provided affirmations, guidance and resources that were specific to my needs. He's been a great guide during my healing process.
In each session, Steve has been incredibly kind, helpful, and attentive. He listens intently and provides feedback that is helpful, manageable, and matches what I am looking for. Steve recommended great books and Ted Talks to help me work through what I am experiencing and our video sessions were seamless.
steve is incredible and amazing at what he does. he makes people feel so comfy and confident in their own skin. can’t thank him enough.
I have found Steve to be attentive, empathetic and aware of what is important to me. He talks straight (which I like) but doesn’t put me under pressure (which is important bc of my experience w bullies). He is sensitive to my faith and I feel I can be myself when conversing with him. I’ve been unable to have sessions w him these past two weeks bc of circumstances at home and I miss hearing his bits of wisdom.
Steve is one awesome counselor hes a great listener he has lots of experience and insisted darn good counsel
