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.

Dr. Foster has been very helpful to me, I would recommend her to anyone struggling with relationship, family, or boundary issues.
At this point I am comfortable with Dr. Foster. I am looking forward to more sessions with her. Not sure what to expect I am new at letting others into my life...
Dr Foster gets to the root of every situation in a fast timely manner and is very professional
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.
Dr. Yvonne is the first psychologist that I truly feel I’ve connected with. With just the first few sessions I already see differences in my anxiety levels and my perception of the world around me. She is understanding and remembers little details. Highly recommend.
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!
She is a wonderful support
Amazing judgment free human being. Really has helped me brush myself off from a very rough spot in life. We were able to move through things like my history efficiently! Highly recommend!
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.
:) very friendly and helpful
I’ve been to many therapy sessions in my life and so far the few I’ve had with Dr Foster are the best I’ve ever had. I felt an instant connection,. Dr. Foster clearly has the skills and expertise to help me, and she has a kind and caring approach. I feel very fortunate to have been paired up with her.
