About Me

Everyone needs help sometimes, and investing in your mental health is making a sound investment in your future. Sometimes we just don't know where to turn to find an empathetic ear. I will listen to understand, not just to respond and help you to discover and unlock the potential inside you. Moving barriers can be like moving boulders and it sometimes takes two or more to carry a heavy load.

Sometimes our thoughts are the barriers that get in the way of success. I can help you identify the negative or faulty thought patterns that lead to harmful or unproductive behaviors. One by one we can work together to remove those barriers. I am a professional with many years working in the service of others and helping individuals to overcome obstacles. I have worked to help individuals solve real life problems of unemployment, homelessness, financial struggles, and furthering their education. Additionally I have had much success with helping individuals manage the symptoms of mental illness such as depression, and assisting them with finding healthy alternative coping strategies.

Entering into a counseling relationship should not be taking lightly. It is a partnership and it takes time to build a trusting relationship with the counselor of your choosing. I hope that I can become a part of a supportive foundation but if ours is not a good fit, that does not mean counseling did not work for you. It means that you may need more time to find the right professional. No counselor has a magic wand or is an expert at everything. My promise to you is that I will do all that I can to be helpful and supportive in empowering you to make sound decisions to make the best investment in your future and to reach your fullest potential.

Yvonne is always so prompt with very telling questions. I am actually surprised how helpful it has been so far. It's a great option for busy people like me who just need to "fit it in where they can." It's a life changing option for people who really need help.
