About Me

Dr. Yvonne E. Holmes, LPC, DDP, MCC
Licensed Professional Counselor
I currently work as a Licensed Professional Counselor with Loving Touch Support Services, where I am the only licensed African American counselor in the area. In 2006, I received my Master of Arts in Christian Counseling from Andersonville Theological Seminary. In 2010, she earned a Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling from Capella University. To further my education, I enrolled at Jacksonville Theological Seminary, where I earned a Doctorate in Christian Counseling in 2017.
In order to stay current in my field, I am a member of the Licensed Professional Advisors Association of Georgia and the Council on Accreditation. I was a Desert Storm Family Coordinator for 17 years, working with 17,000 military and families, providing life coaching and directing them to other agencies within the military structure. My clinical approach encompasses, but is not limited to, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Group Therapy, Client Centered Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy. I am knowledgeable, open, and compassionate when it comes to the needs of others. Outside of the military, I have counseled military personnel (both men and women), women, men, and teenagers. Stress management, adjustment disorders, anxiety, behavioral issues with teenagers, anger management, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression, low self-esteem issues, surviving divorce, and other concerns are common.
My professional success can be attributed to my desire to assist others in reaching their full potential. It makes me happy to see others achieve their goals. I am empathetic and work to increase self-esteem in order to assist people in making long-term changes in their lives.

Written by C.A. on Jul 03, 2022 after therapy with Yvonne for 1 month on issues concerning depression, and self esteem

My sessions with Dr. Holmes have been wonderful. She is kind and gentle and funny. She listens, and I felt she very quickly understood what my issues were and what kind of help I needed. She was gentle and encouraging, but also challenged me. Her suggestions were very practical and helpful, and I feel I have really turned a corner in understanding my own mental health and in knowing how to take better care of myself. It has been a very positive and life-changing experience for me!

Dr. Holmes was an answer to my prayers. She does a great job at balancing spiritual console with professional advice, all while being a great listener and having an extremely kind spirit. Dr. Holmes welcomed prayer into our sessions, which really gave me peace that we were handling my situation with a balanced and well rounded approach. The advice and teaching she gave me challenged my thinking, and she often encouraged me with her insight and tenderness. Being able to journal and share my notes with Dr. Holmes gave me an even greater outlet to share my thoughts and feelings, and also gave her a chance to respond to my writing throughout the week. Overall, she was outstanding and I consider her a blessing. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
