As such, I'm not limited to one approach to helping my clients but can offer multiple approaches that fits the individual the best.

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!

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.

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.

Written by A.L. on Aug 01, 2021 after therapy with Steve for 4 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, and coping with life changes

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.

Written by S.I. on Jul 21, 2021 after therapy with Steve for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and self esteem

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.
