About Me

Hello, I’m Yolanda Thomas LPC. I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Wisconsin. I have worked in the mental health field for over 5 years and have been practicing as a therapist for 3 years. If you are experiencing hardships relating to anxiety, depression, life changes, or trauma, do not hesitate to reach out to me. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in conjunction with Narrative Therapy to assist you in telling your story and identifying how to change the outcome or rewrite the narrative.

Everyone has a time when they need support and struggle with asking for help. I know this from my own experience and interactions with others. When someone comes to me, I want to be sure that they know that I understand first the difficulty in deciding to ask for help and second that they feel safe enough to trust me with their story, thoughts, and emotions.

Yolanda is an exceptional therapist. She’s extremely intelligent, personable, resourceful, and everything else you could want your counselor to be. She is the first person to offer me valuable techniques for overcoming my anxieties in daily life. She values what I say, and never judges. She makes the confusing things clear, and is there every step of the way! I have yet to leave a session not feeling like i’ve made progress in my healing, I am beyond thankful I was matched with Yolanda as my councilor.

Yolanda is so kind and patient. It's so nice to finally have someone who seems to understand me. She gets what I'm talking about or trying to say. She is so supportive and gives great strategies to help me through my day to day. Lucky to have her!

Yolanda has truly changed my life by helping diagnose me and being there for me every step of the way. Very easy to talk to and caring. Well worth the money.

Yolanda made my first time in therapy feel comfortable and easy. She guided me on how to take control of my time and really listened to how I felt. She is great a therapist.

There are weeks when I feel exhausted and at a loss for words, yet Yolanda continues to check in on me. It’s hard to get started but so worth it.

Yolanda was the best!! She really listens to me and I’m so sad i can’t afford to keep doing therapy with her.

Written by M.I. on Nov 24, 2021 after therapy with Yolanda for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and coping with life changes

Yolanda is an empathetic counselor who well balances listening and providing feedback. She clearly states what she is hearing and her thoughts/observations with both candor and kindness. I only had the opportunity to speak with her once, but in that time she gave me a lot of perspective. I only discontinued seeing her because I was able to reconnect with my former therapist at her new practice, and my sessions with her (my previous therapist) were ongoing.

I HIGHLY recommend Yolanda as a therapist.

Yolanda is kind and patient. She is extremely helpful and doesnt push. I am an open person so I guess that helps. But I feel comfortable to be so open.

Written by S.A. on Oct 18, 2021 after therapy with Yolanda for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and career difficulties

Appreciated Yolanda being patient with me even though I’m not comfortable with therapy with counselors and even though we did everything through text she was patient and attentive. Would recommend.

Work with me!
