Yvonne believes that just like the river stone each individual has a soul and a story to tell.  She believes that the answers lie within each of us and the work of the therapist is to partner with the one seeking assistance, listen to their stories and assist in finding the answers within that brings them health, healing and wholeness. 
 
Yvonne has a history spanning over two decades of working in the social work field.  Currently, she provides therapy to individuals dealing with substance use disorders, PTSD, Depression, and other mental health diagnoses.  She is clinically trained and proficient in Motivational Enhancement Therapy/Motivational Interviewing and Cognitive Processing Therapy.   Yvonne is also trained in Seeking Safety, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focus Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy   and Behavioral Family Therapy.    Additional clinical experience includes working with adoptive families, survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and individuals experiencing other traumatic life experiences.   
Yvonne enjoys supplementing talk therapies with creative expressions such as music, writing, drama, and dance with clients who are open to the inclusion of non-conventional methods of healing and processing emotions/feelings.  She embraces the strengths perspective; therefore she looks for and builds on the strengths of her clients. 
In keeping herself balanced and well, Yvonne enjoys writing stage plays,  acting and directing.  She enjoys laughter and good conversations with trusted friends, journaling, meditation, prayer and enjoying nature.
