Therapy for Anxiety and Depression
Anxiety and Depression are among the most common mental health problems and can be debilitating. Therapy for these issues can help you to return to a "normal" life.
Trauma Resolution/PTSD Therapy:
Trauma/PTSD results from an event that is perceived as life-threatening. Trauma resolution allows the brain to process memories of the event so that the memory is stored in a part of the brain that does not trigger the "fight-or-flight" response.
Daring Way™ / Rising Strong™
The Daring Way™ was created with the primary focus on developing shame resilience skills and a courage practice of wholehearted living that transforms the way we live, love, parent, and lead.
Rising Strong™, is based on the simple physics of vulnerability: If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall. This is a curriculum about what it takes to get back up and how owning our stories of struggle gives us the power to write a daring new ending. Struggle can be our greatest call to courage and and the clearest path to a wholehearted life.
These groups and workshop experiences are based on the work of Dr. Brené Brown Ph.D. LMSW, a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past fourteen years studying vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame and her groundbreaking research has been featured on PBS, NPR, CNN, The Katie Show, and Oprah Winfrey's Super Soul Sunday. Brené's work is transforming individuals, marriages, families, and the work place, and it is powerful because it is tapping into what we were all profoundly and deeply created for…. love and belonging.
Brené Brown is the author of Rising Strong (August 25, 2015), Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the way we Live, Love, Parent, and Lead (2012), The Gifts of Imperfection (2010) and I Thought It Was Just Me (2007).
Brené's 2010 TEDx Houston talk, The Power of Vulnerability, is one of the top ten most viewed TED talks in the world, with over 11 million viewers. Additionally, Brené gave the closing talk at the 2012 TED conference where she talked about shame, courage, and innovation. View here:

Grief counseling is a form of psychotherapy that aims to help people cope with grief and mourning following the death of loved ones, or with major life changes that trigger feelings of grief (e.g., divorce). Grief counselors feel that everyone experiences and expresses grief in their own way, often shaped by culture. They believe that it is not uncommon for a person to withdraw from their friends and family and feel helpless; some might be angry and want to take action. Some may laugh. Grief counselors hold that one can expect a wide range of emotion and behavior associated with grief. Some counselors believe that in all places and cultures, the grieving person benefits from the support of others. Further, grief counselors believe that where such support is lacking, counseling may provide an avenue for healthy resolution. Grief counselors believe that grief is a process the goal of which is "resolution." The field further believes that where the process of grieving is interrupted, for example, by simultaneously having to deal with practical issues of survival or by being the strong one and holding a family together, grief can remain unresolved and later resurface as an issue for counseling.
Work and Career Stressors
At times, work and career stress becomes overwhelming and affects personal areas, including sleep, relationships, and a tendency toward harmful coping behavior. Therapy helps to restore balance.
Living with chronic pain and other health conditions is a daily challenge. People who experience chronic pain go through a grief process and have to find a new path of living healthfully and balancing activity and rest. Yolanda is uniquely qualified to help in this area and has helped individuals and groups to discover their "new normal".
Yolanda is trained in the Gottman method of couples counseling, which is based on decades worth of research on what makes relationships successful. Your relationship is not doomed... you can rediscover the happiness and security that your relationship once offered. Read more about the Gottman method here.
