About me

No one in life is perfect, including me! Being able to identify, relate and empathize with you as my patient is probably one of my greatest strengths. The special relationship formed between you and I, ensuring trust, confidence, and ability to truly work through the issues are of utmost importance. I believe everyone has something to work through in their lives. By providing evidence based therapy and unconditional positive regard, I have been very effective in my treatment history. I will always begin where you feel you need to go in therapy and allow you to guide me in your struggles, what you need most and what you desire to gain from therapy. This is a two way relationship and feedback throughout the therapeutic process will only enhance the therapeutic relationship towards your goals. I wish for you to find the inner peace and strength that I know everyone has within them and to be able to achieve and live the life that makes you feel truly alive!

As for some information about myself, I am a retired Army social worker and love that I have had the ability to work with Soldiers throughout a multitude of issues to include PTSD, depression, anxiety, phase of life issues, grief and loss, marital counseling, substance abuse, domestic violence intervention, parenting skills, and adjustment issues. My background and strengths are in utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Prolonged Exposure and other desensitization therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, and Supportive Therapy. I like to provide psycho-education and lots of coping skills, self-reflective, and other psychological tools to allow patients to learn and grow via hands-on materials. Growth comes with constant practice and application of the things we learn. I hope you will allow me to be part of your journey and I look forward to meeting you.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Yumi Lemaster. 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.

I’ve learned a lot about myself in the process. I’m at the point where I haven’t needed to check in as much because of it. Yumi is really good at allowing you to see the bigger picture & look beyond the current situation you are in to figure out why you feel the way you do, figure out ways to face them & gives you different methods to try to resolve your problems.

Yumi is great. She listens, supports but also tells me what I need to hear. She offers great suggestions and she breaks things down so I will understand them.

Yumi is an amazing therapist that listens, and also really helps you understand what you can do to better the situation.
She is great at creating a safe space to share your struggles and is very calming.

Yumi has been an awesome therapist. She is very insightful and very respectful. She approaches things from all angles and lets me decide how and when I want to deal with things. She has made texting her feel safe and comfortable. Definitely one of the best.

Yumi is very good at listening. She points out interesting things without me feeling like I'm being picked apart. She even sometimes offers some anecdotal bits that help me feel like I'm not too crazy. She's awesome
