Dr. Yvonne Foster

LPC

About Me

I have over 25 years of experience providing mental health therapy to individual's, couples, and families. I believe that you should not be in therapy for years, but should be quickly making the changes in your life to get you out of therapy. The goal of therapy is to help you to determine what those changes are and then to help you take the necessary steps to make those changes. My approach to therapy combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and mindfulness.
I am direct, honest, and genuine in the care I provide and consider my assessment and diagnostic skills to be my greatest strength. Client satisfaction and demonstrable results are a priority. I will be the first person to tell you if we are not a good fit. I am interactive and do more than "just sit there and listen." I have a strong background in working with individuals on the Autism Spectrum, including couples, as well as, female medical conditions that impact mental health functioning. In addition, I have 10 years of experience in the area of disability services at the college level.

Written on Nov 28, 2022 after therapy with Yvonne for 1 year and 6 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, and sleeping disorders

She is very insightful & pragmatic and hones in on areas that I need to strengthen while affirming areas I may not recognizes as strengths.

Dr. Foster literally changed the direction that my life was going in. She is extremely skilled in what she does and does not beat around the bush. She is straight up and honest with you, even when it's sometimes hard to hear. Because of that, it drives change which is why most of us start therapy. She is compassionate and understanding and is able to introduce you to new ways of thinking about yourself and your past. I could not say enough good things about Dr. Foster. If I had to start therapy again from the beginning, I would without a doubt choose her every single time. She is the best of the best.

I’ve been with Dr Foster for a little over a year, having not really had therapy before. I didn’t fully understand the things that were holding me back from really growing into the best version of myself, but over time Dr Foster has helped me to realise how my experiences have shaped me, and in working through these things with her she has supported and encouraged me in creating new experiences for myself. I have done so much growth this year, I’ve surprised myself, and I can honestly say that my sessions with Dr Foster have been a huge part of the progress I’ve made.

The best!

Written on Jun 19, 2022 after therapy with Yvonne for 5 months on issues concerning depression

Dr Foster is a blessing. She shares so much wisdom that she accumulated from years of helping people and gifts it from a place of great care/consideration.

Together with Dr. Foster, I’ve grown to wield my current personality characteristics in a way that helps me and see my life/situations from a holistic view. In addition, she has helped me reduce and eliminate ways I have been negatively judging myself and making my life harder for myself. And so much more.

I highly recommend Dr. Foster to help you improve the quality of your life. Wishing you two the best!

Thank you for being a listening ear and for shedding light on the areas of life that I felt confused and overwhelmed by. You have a tough love approach which I found helped me to really question my beliefs about myself and my circumstances. Thank you!

So lucky to have met Dr Foster. She is so empathetic and understanding. She can be a shoulder to lean when you need it and gives you a dose of tough love when you need it. She has helped me in all aspects of my life. I can’t recommend her enough

Dr. Foster has opened my eyes to things that i have been trying to breakthrough to the last 10 years in different therapies. I am so thankful to have met her. She is honest, supportive, kind and makes you feel safe rather than silly for any fears or anxieties you have. I’m excited to see how much more i can grow through my sessions with her. I highly recommend her to anyone!

Even in just a few sessions Dr. Foster has helped me understand more about my mental needs and their derivatives. If you need assistance, I would highly recommend her.

Written on Aug 21, 2021 after therapy with Yvonne for 1 month on issues concerning trauma and abuse

I've spent 40 + years looking for the right Dr. to help me understand and find peace with my PTSD.

Dr. Foster has been - by far - the most exceptional & insightful therapist with keen observations and practical advice on how to proceed when walking through agonizingly, historical emotional landmines.
Dr. Foster's wise counsel and clear wisdom has changed my jagged viewpoint from the murky lens with which I have tearfully looked through for decades.

Thank You Dr. Foster for helping me find peace and understanding.

Dr. Foster is everything I've been looking for in a therapist and more. She's a warm and compassionate listener, but also able to challenge me when I needed it. I feel confident that she understands me and my goals, and how to help me reach them. I'm genuinely looking forward to our next session!

Dr. Foster is really fantastic. She tells you what actually will work for you and listens you quite patiently and emphatically. She's pretty good in nurturing when it's about your personal independence and empowerment.
