About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas. My education was obtained at Texas A&M University - Kingsville where I completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Master of Arts In Psychology and a Master of Science in Art. I have worked with clients in correctional and residential settings. Taught classes in Anger Management and Domestic Violence. Over the years I have worked with clients dealing with addiction, sexual abuse/offense issues, victims of sexual abuse, grief, trauma, anger, anxiety, coping with life changing issues, physical and emotional abuse . I am also certified in Anger Resolution.

My counseling approach is client centered, cognitive behavioral, reality and the recognition everyone is different and should be treated with respect. Life is a classroom and if you don't make mistakes how do you learn, but to learn from them we must forgive ourselves.

As a counselor I support my clients and respect the courage and determination it takes to grow,

Yvonne has helped me so much! She almost felt like a mother to me, and showed me the tough love I desperately needed. She called me out on my self-destructive behaviours, but was also kind, encouraging, supportive, and patient while doing so. She was the perfect balance between challenging me and still providing me with a safe space to talk about my feelings. I value her guidance so much!

Written by Z.I. on Oct 10, 2021 after therapy with Yvonne for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

I’ve tried therapy before, but this is the first time I actually feel like it’s helping. Yvonne does not judge, she’s genuine and caring. I’ve only had a few sessions with her so far, but she has no idea how much she’s already helped me. I reached out for help when I was in a very bad place. Yvonne listens to every single thing I have to say and helps me better understand my situations. I consider it my safe space and feel comfortable telling her anything because you can tell she truly cares and wants to help. Thank you for everything Yvonne!

Yvonne has her hands full with me, and is doing great. Grateful for her input. She responds as soon as she can, considering she has other clients and we are on a 17 hour time difference with me in Australia and her being in Texas. It is good to have a therapist that can balance the plethora of listening, the little bit of love you need and a kick in the ass delivered properly. She does that well, glad to have her helping me through this.

I feel comfortable with Yvonne as she lets me speak and express myself. Even though sometimes I interrupt her as I didn’t want to let what I have remembered, disappear. She didn’t find me rude for cutting her off and lets me speak my mind and listens to what I have to say.
I like frank people, very upfront and fair. I would like Yvonne to be totally frank and upfront with me as I would like and am eager to learn.
