About me

I am a knowledgeable therapist - Certified Drug and Alcohol Counselor and a Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist, who takes a non judgmental, practical approach, with an understanding that we are all different. Utilizing this approach, along with evidenced-based practices and Christian principles, I educate, encourage and empower clients to increase growth and healing.

I have first-hand experience with the military culture. I am a veteran and I was a military spouse. I understand that challenges that the military can bring - from military trauma, separation due to deployment, to combat-related stress

I am currently independently licensed in Washington state and Kentucky. I am experienced working with individuals (male, female, teens - of all ages) with mental health disorders, depression, anxiety and issues coping with daily life stresses. and those who struggle with God's calling upon their lives.

I look forward to working with you towards wellness and wholeness!!!

Yvette is wonderful - I cannot say enough good things about her. She told me the truth even when it was hard and helped me realize how capable and empowered I already was, if I just used what I had in a healthy way. Our sessions have been transformative and truly beneficial. She's the best!

Yvette is amazing! She has helped, encouraged, corrected, supported, and directed me in many ways. Sharing the same faith has been so helpful in our sessions, and I thank the Lord for connecting me with Yvette.
