About Me

Hi,
My name is Yvonne Heim, a Licensed Professional Counselor with the state of Texas. I have been a counselor for close to fifteen years. I have a master’s degree in psychology with a specialty in addiction and a master’s degree in human services with a specialty in mental health counseling. My approach to helping clients is I understand every client is different as are the problems they present with and one size does not fit all when it comes to helping clients. There are a variety of theories and techniques to assist clients in reaching his or her goals but, Person Centered Therapy along with Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) has worked well for me in treating clients.

I want clients to feel comfortable working with me and me with him or her. More importantly, I want a client to leave a session feeling like he or she was heard, and the problems, issues, and goals were the focus of the session. During sessions, clients should feel comfortable sharing and asking questions and not feel judged in any way. Person Centered Therapy is ideal for accomplishing those things. I also believe one's thoughts greatly impact one's mood, emotional well-being, and behavior. Teaching clients how to overcome many of his or her negative thinking patterns is extremely helpful and utilizing DBT can be beneficial in assisting a client to achieve peace within while working on problems and overcoming problems through emotion regulation and mindfulness.

Whether it is depression, anxiety, grief, addiction, or some other mental health issue, I will assist and support clients as they work in either overcoming the problem or learn to manage issues more effectively.

I am a compassionate and caring counselor and a good listener. I know firsthand how important it is to have a good counselor because I have experienced trauma, grief, and a host of other emotions and symptoms as a result of my trauma. I reached out for a counselor and for me, the counselor I worked with made all the difference in overcoming my life challenges.

Yvonne and I have met only two times. We are in the midst of identifying my needs and the tools that I can use to work through my struggles. She is super nice, inquisitive and supportive. Learning about how we can work together and recognizing strategies that I can use for now. Yvonne has provided literature for me to use and study.

Written by C.O. on May 13, 2021 after therapy with Yvonne for 6 months on issues concerning trauma and abuse

Yvonne has helped me more in the past 6 months than all my other therapists combined have in previous years. She is an active listener with lots of experience and she understands narcissistic abuse which most therapists don’t get!
You can tell she really cares about her clients. I have learned a lot and feel more emotionally stable than I did before working with her. I always look forward to our meetings and love it when she ends the sessions with prayer. Thank you Yvonne!!

Yvonne helped me hone in on the root of the issues I was dealing with and helped provide me with tools to improve my outlook and self-esteem. She helped me realize the ways of thinking that were not serving me and take steps to overcome my fears and insecurities. She's also been great at providing me with perspective. I have loved working with her and have received much solace. I highly recommend working with Yvonne!

Written by S.H. on Oct 13, 2020 after therapy with Yvonne for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and career difficulties

Yvonne makes me feel like my voice matters and that what I'm going through matters and is valid. She let me know right away that I'm not alone, and even that she has gone through a similar experience and that alone makes me feel more at ease.

Written by J.O. on Sep 29, 2020 after therapy with Yvonne for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, grief, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

Yvonne was very personable and really easy to talk to. She didn’t make you feel like you were under a microscope which allowed me to really focus on how I was feeling. She offered options and solutions right up front after an initial evaluation which allowed me to start to focus on getting better sooner. One of the best parts about her therapy is that she provided worksheets that helped explain the “why” which I feel is very important for someone to understand so they can know how to work on themself from within. I would strongly recommend Yvonne to anyone who needs help.

Written by J.A. on Sep 23, 2020 after therapy with Yvonne for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and adhd

Extremely kind and sympathetic. Never passes judgment or shames you about anything. Even when you aren't sure exactly how to put things into words, she understands what you mean. She's very easy to talk to, but she's also very clear and realistic with you when she needs to be. I've thoroughly enjoyed my time with her and feel a lot of progress every session.

Written by A.M. on Sep 03, 2020 after therapy with Yvonne for 2 weeks on issues concerning trauma and abuse, and intimacy-related issues

Yvonne has been greatly helpful. She has allowed me to understand myself and how to address my internal struggles through positive thoughts and self-talk.

Written by J.E. on Aug 27, 2020 after therapy with Yvonne for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Yvonne has been great helping me through post-partum anxiety, panic attacks, and family issues. She’s given me lots of info to learn from and book suggestions that have helped as well. She’s helping me process family issues as they come up and has helped me learn to control my anxiety better. She truly seems to understand where I’m coming from. I look forward to continuing to work with her.

She's the best. I have learned more about myself and how to deal with myself in two sessions than any other therapist. Seriously, she is a stud.

Thanks Yvonne!

She is not just supportive and understanding, but always makes me feel safe and heard. I have been in and out of therapy before because I was always told "you're so self aware.." and then I guess trusted me to work it out myself. She knows I'm there for the help to work it out. I'm really happy with her.

Written by A.N. on Aug 13, 2020 after therapy with Yvonne for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and self esteem

Yvonne is a wonderful therapist. She listens to every word you say and has the best answers to each issue. She works at your pace and adjusts to your schedule. She is very sweet and pleasant to work with. I personally like doing worksheets in between each session and she makes sure I get at least one or two each week to work on my specific issues.

Yvonne is a great counselor, she really spends time with you and cares. Her attention to me really showed, and I appreciate her objective input for this past month of my life! It had been great time spent, and very helpful to have someone to air ideas with. Yvonne really helped me set my goals and accomplish my goal for counseling, which was to get me back on track and have good things to look forward to. She really holds herself to a high standard and I’m so thankful for her help!

Yvonne has been extremely helpful. we have only worked for a short i dont feel like im lost in the wind anymore. Its a simple as positive self talk and when i think it needs to more i fall back to my behaviors that trigger panic attacks. I want to work with Yvonne for as long as i can
