An interesting client for me is the middle-aged male who has climbed the ladder of success only to find there is nothing there but "stuff". They are extremely depressed realizing that they are unsatisfied with their lives. So they come into therapy to start "The Male Journey". If they become humble and honest, there is a chance that they can transform their lives for the better. Often, this approach is successful with couples who are in need of relationship counseling.

Hi! I'm Yolanda. I'm an open-minded mental health therapist, licensed in the state of Florida. I've been practicing for over 10 years. However, I joke that I've been a therapist since I was 12 years old because I've always sought resolution, peace, and togetherness. My expertise in relationship counseling comes from working with many families over the years. Relationships can be hard at times because there are on-going situations and circumstances that challenge them. There are effective ways to get through the tough times. I can help you implement effective tools needed to attain and maintain healthy relationships.

I have over 30 years of experience helping children and their parents. I help children who are experiencing emotional or behavioral problems in school, with their peers or with their families. I use a therapeutic approach that combines talk therapy (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and play therapy, in an environment that is safe, nurturing and fun. I meet individually with the parents to instruct them in skills they can use to help their child. A "Positive Parenting" model is used to identify and strengthen the qualities the parents want their child to develop.

My path to becoming a therapist was more of a calling than a career decision. I’m not particularly suited to this profession. I’m introverted, which causes me to present as somewhat unfriendly and aloof to strangers. I’m really not concerned with small talk or what I consider the superficialities of life. But when it comes to exploring the deepest, most difficult and painful core aspects of your life that’s the space where I feel most comfortable. The foundation of my practice is my own personal journey in 12-step recovery. I would say I was "chosen" for the gift of recovery from a self-destructive lifestyle more than 32 years ago.

*TEMPORARILY NOT TAKING NEW CLIENTS* The majority of my experience over the last 10 years has been with couples and individuals, and this is where I find myself to be most successful and happen to find the most enjoyment. I find great satisfaction in seeing couples discover the ability to reconnect, communicate, and discover new ways to live in harmony again, whether this is in an actual couple session or individually.

Being a counselor is a great privilege! I enjoy walking with people through some of the darkest times of their lives as they move forward to reaching their goals. The environment of the client-therapist relationship is unique and powerful. Within this context, growth is contagious. It's amazing to watch people say things like "I finally know and like myself" and feel that they no longer feel "stuck" or full of confusion or regrets. In order to be engaged in this process, I believe in being genuine, caring, and straight-forward.

"Spinning my wheels." "Struggle Bus." "Stuck." These are just a few of the common phrases we use to express how we're feeling when things get difficult or we're struggling to make changes in our lives and relationships. Sometimes that "stuck-ness" feels like depression or sadness, stress or anxiety. Sometimes it's behaviors and beliefs we want to revamp to get life moving forward again. And, sometimes, it's hard to define in words. For many of us, it's knowing we want to change and grow, but it's also frightening. Fortunately, we don't have to do it alone.

Bipolar Disorder Therapists

What is the most successful approach to treating bipolar disorder?

Living with bipolar disorder can be challenging, and a number of therapies have been found effective in providing support to patients as they gain the skills to understand and manage the disorder. Family-focused therapy is often helpful for children and teens (the majority of cases develop before age 19); it aims to minimize mood cycling by improving family communication and reducing conflict. It also helps young people navigate the developmental challenges the disorder can create. Cognitive and behavioral therapy (CBT) and variants such as dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) help patients manage the thoughts and feelings that influence bipolar mood swings as well as develop specific behavioral strategies to counteract them.

What happens in therapy for bipolar disorder?

Because the patterns of mood switching and its triggers differ for each person and can change over time, mood tracking or monitoring becomes a basic way patients learn about the nature of their condition. One of the most common features of therapy is finding a workable method of mood monitoring, in which patients track their daily activities and rate their moods, then use the findings to adjust routines accordingly. Patients learn ways of handling the many stresses that arise in life so that they do not trigger mood swings.

What kinds of problems does therapy help with?

Like many other mental health disorders, BPD is heavily influenced by stress; therapy provides skills for coping with stressors of all kinds. Therapy is extremely important for helping individuals identify the situations that may trigger mood switching, so that mood swings can be prevented. Therapy may especially target recognition of the early stages of mood change so that they can be managed. In addition, therapy helps patients deal with the significant amount of turbulence the disorder can create in relationships and in work life.

What is the goal of therapy for bipolar disorder?

Therapy helps patients set up their lives to maintain stability so that their mood isn’t constantly threatened by daily events. Perhaps the first task of therapy is to educate people about the nature of the disorder. At the same time, a primary goal of therapy is to enhance adherence to drug treatment. Extended periods of mood stability can prompt patients to discontinue medication, triggering relapse, while the early phases of manic episodes can feel so energizing that patients stop medication, ushering in full-blown mania and the altered self-perception that can lead to destructive behaviors. Another major goal of therapy is to understand one’s mood patterns so as to minimize both the frequency and intensity of mood cycling.
