Excellent. A real professional who gets to the heart of your issue.

She is thoughtful, thorough and patient. She listens to your background and helps you see blind spots that you were not even aware that they were there.

I have been work with Ms. Barnes for about a month and a half (6 sessions so far) and I really believe that she is God sent for me. Even going through all that I'm dealing with, I truly trust her and look forward to meeting with her each time. She is extremely professional and knowledgeable. She is also very personable and kind. She challenges me and gives me hope to go through the journey and reach the other side of recovery.

I've only met with Yvonne Barnes once, so far, but I really appreciate her willingness and professionalism in working with me toward becoming a better me. I truly feel that she understands me and my emotional needs as well as any voids I'm experiencing now.
