Yolanda has been my therapist for the last months, she is a great listener, always understands me and her suggestions for me are always the best.
I strongly recommend Yolanda Patterson.

Yolanda is very caring of the issues I’ve brought to her. She listens to every detail. I’ve had a great time explaining what I’ve been going through because I don’t feel embarrassed or ashamed, she makes me feel comfortable.

Ms Yolanda provides me the time and opportunity to look deeper into situations that have allowed me to better understand me. I feel a calmness and clarity in my situation since our communications. My response is so different. I am super glad to have her as my counselor. She listens and provides perspective. Yes I would absolutely recommend her to others---She is for REAL!

Yolanda is very patient with me, she checks in when she hasnt heard from me for a while. She helps me set goals, she helps me think outside the box, and she helps me to see things from a different perspective in order to get my own life in order. I truly enjoy talking to her!
