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.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Yvonne Foster. 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 have had the best experience I have ever had in therapy with Dr. Foster. She has helped me uncover and process childhood and family dynamics that I have been completely unaware of. She is the only therapist who has been able to correctly identify my family system and how it has impacted me in my life. I can easily say she is the best clinician I have ever had. I feel empowered to improve my life in ways that I did not know I needed. Dr. Foster has been inspirational.

Dr Foster’s approach to therapy is unlike any other therapist I had. She is phenomenal for the people who have long term therapeutic experience who need a fresh point of view in a way that challenges them again. She is goal oriented and that goal is to get you to a place you don’t need to talk to her all the time. I would say she is not for the faint of heart but rather for the people that need a new and challenging perspective to how they think and act.
