About me

I am licensed in Texas and New Mexico with 25 years of professional work experience in the mental health industry. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, motivation, self esteem, confidence, depression, trauma & coping with life changes.
A therapist can be a facilitator to help us navigate the path of healing that can often get overwhelming and emotional safety is key in your healing on your counseling journey. You will find that the answers lie inside of you, and a counselor can help you find those answers, hone in on your strengths, set realistic goals for yourself and excavate thoughts that no longer serve you. It takes work, but I believe you can do this, and we get back the work that we invest in ourselves. Taking the first step takes courage, let’s walk on your new journey together as you embark on becoming your best self, your highest version of you. I am proud of you for moving forward!

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Yolanda Fajardo-Vela. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Yolanda is professional, positive and kind. For the past 20 months she has walked me back from the pit of despair and back into a life!
She is a Godsend. I have never stuck with therapy until Yolanda came into my life. She helped me with breathing techniques to ground me back into reality. She has spoken truth into me so I don't fall into the lies of the enemy and remain in the darkness of guilt and shame. I truly thank God for Yolanda...and I hope I always have her cheering me on to faith and good works in the Kingdom of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Yolanda is a genuine and person-centered therapist. She has a calming way about her and also has a personable style that evokes trust. The homework has been very helpful and having an unbiased ear has been healing. Thank you, Yolanda, for caring and listening to me.

Yolanda did a great job listening and encouraging me—making me feel heard and empowered.

I’ve enjoyed and have been enjoying my sessions with Yolanda. I feel like Yolanda is giving me the tools and homework necessary to help guide and push me in the direction I want to be in. I feel heard and remembered when we meet. I felt discouraged coming back to therapy, I felt like I couldn’t dive deeper, and Yolanda has changed that for me.

Yolanda has such an open approach to therapy for her clients! She makes me feel at ease almost immediately. Her self help & breathing exercises have tremendously helped me thus far. Thanks, Yolanda!
