About Me

Hello and Welcome! My name is Yolanda Butcher. I received my undergraduate and graduate degree in Social Work from the State University of New York at Albany. I am a Licensed Master Social Worker with over 20 years experience working with individuals with social, emotional, and behavioral issues in outpatient settings. My approach to therapy is individualized, compassionate, collaborative, and holistic. I strive to ensure an environment that is safe, culturally sensitive, affirming, and mutually respectful. This approach fosters trust and allows you to feel comfortable expressing your thoughts and feelings. I believe a client's experience of therapy and the therapeutic relationship is a significant factor in the success of therapy. I hope to provide you with a safe and secure space for your healing journey.

My areas of specialty include trauma/abuse, life transitions, anxiety, depression, coping skills, stress management, grief and loss, family/relationship issues, self-esteem issues, LGBTQ+ issues, women's issues, chronic illness, and substance abuse. My counseling approaches includes Cognitive Behavioral, Trauma Focused, Dialectical (DBT), Mindfulness Based, Person-Centered, Solution Focused, Strength Based and integrative therapy and interventions to guide you on your path to healing.

It takes courage and commitment to change. You have the power to transform your life. It's a journey, but you're not alone. Let me help you achieve the outcome you want from therapy.

Written by Y.E. on Sep 30, 2021 after therapy with Yolanda for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and grief

I have only had okie session so far over the phone but this far chatting on the website and my first meeting with her was very helpful and she really dug deep into the different areas I needed help, with a compassion that made me feel very comfortable
