About Me

Hi, my name is Yohalinny Veloz and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the State of New York. I have a Master of Social Work Degree and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. I have worked in the social services field for 14 years and have been providing counseling for over 4 years. Throughout this time, I have had the opportunity to work in various capacities and providing an array of services. Some of these have been within child/family welfare services, teen and family therapy (individual and group), LGBTQ, working with individuals diagnosed with HIV/AIDS, renal transplant candidates and recipients, and individuals that engage in alcohol and/or substance abuse.

I primarily use the following concepts: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, and Solution-Focused Therapy, yet am flexible in providing other interventions if they are more suitable for your needs. Together we can work as a team towards a healthier and happier life. I look forward to working with you.

Yohalinny is an amazing person! She’s such a sweetheart and I just enjoy speaking and chatting with her. Just talking about my day with her and the things I’m going through has helped me so much. In one month of therapy with her, I feel like I’ve changed so much. I’m feeling much better now than I did a few months ago. I wasn’t even sure if I would ever go back to being the “old me” that was happier and less anxious, but I think I’m slowly getting there and as I’m getting there, I’m changing but in a really beautiful positive way. Thank you Yohalinny.

I've tried many therapists in office and another online. Yohalinny has been my favorite so far: she's open minded, understanding, encouraging, and has a calming energy that makes it easy to talk to her.

Yohalinny is a great listener and her expertise has helped me over our sessions. She asks thoughtful questions that force me to think about my situations in a different way I haven't thought about before. She's always very kind.

Yohalinny is such a great and kind counselor. She understood exactly how I felt without me telling her much about me. She offered great advise and insight and I would definitely love to work with her again if I happen to need it. She is a great listener and very thoughtful.

She is very responsive and is able to get to the heart of what my concern is and provides valuable feedback for me to think of further, reflect on, and execute when I reach a comfort level to do so. She is not forceful in her approach but very kind which is appreciated.

I have been to so many other therapists befor. She is without a doubt the best person I have ever talked to about my mental health. For the first time I felt liatend to. She helps me live a better life. I hope she findes success in her life because there are too few people in this world that truly care about people and she is one of them.

An AMAZING counselor. I am currently pregnant and in one months time I had an experienced a loss, had family trouble. It caused me so much anxiety and stress. But she helped me through it, and after every session I felt so much better. She communicates clearly with you, listens and she is extremely motivating and helpful. She gives you tools to keep focus on your goals and yourself. I highly recommend her.

Yohalinny is very kind and patient as I went through much trauma. She was able to discuss some things in depth and in video with me in order to help me grow as a person and move on from the messed up things that I’ve been through. I highly recommend getting her. She was non judgmental as I went through my highs and lows.

Yohalinny was an amazing support for me during an extremely difficult time. She was so responsive and checked on me when she hadn’t heard from me. She was caring and also gave me actionable things to do to help myself. Highly recommend.

I've worked with a variety of therapists and working with Yohalinny is the first time I can recall feeling like I'm not being judged. She responds in a timely manner and is able to understand how I'm feeling below the surface. Best of all, I love that I don't have to wait a week or 2 for an appointment and that I can get out and share how I'm feeling in the height of a moment.

Written by J.E. on Jun 29, 2020 after counseling with Yohalinny for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, and coaching

Yohalinny has been an extremely integral part of my support system through a very difficult time and circumstance in my life.

She has been nothing but kind, considerate and attentive to my needs and how I’m feeling. I never feel judged or misunderstood when we discuss the ins and outs of my life, no matter how “small” the issue may seem.

This experience has completely altered the trajectory of my recovery in the best way possible. I’m in such a good place now, in large part to my experience with Yohalinny and BetterHelp.

Whenever I need her, I know she is here for me and to help where she can. I’m extremely grateful for this experience and my decision to explore therapy.
