I work with a variety of adult clients, both individually and in couples counseling. Many of my clients are dealing with varying levels of anxiety, depression and/or relationship struggles. Often clients have struggled with these concerns for a long time but resisted admitting that anything was wrong or seeking help.

Sometimes life brings difficult and confusing times. These difficulties typically get easier as days pass. However, there are times, or seasons, in our lives where problems are compounded for various reasons. We may feel overwhelmed and emotionally depleted which affect our quality of life and ability to function. We know that we, or our family, need help from a trained professional. If you are feeling this way, Brighter Days are here! My name is Yanada G. Essex. In 2002, I started a holistic counseling service called Brighter Days, Inc. to bring "brighter days" to you and your family.

Greetings, I am a psychotherapist who specializes in Trauma and Sex Therapy. My goal is to support you holistically working together to create a space of healing. Most of us experience some type of negative life event as we move throughout our lives. Events that are not fully processed may show up as increased anxiety, anger, depression, or unpleasant sensations in our bodies. I also work with individuals who have toxic shame. As a Sex Therapist, I work with individuals who want to explore and broaden their own sexuality and those with sexual concerns, sexual dysfunction, sexual pain and desire discrepancies.

Peace of mind. It's something we all yearn for, yet life's challenges can make it feel so elusive. Issues like substance use, anxiety, and depression often stand in the way. But that's where therapy comes in. It takes courage to seek help when you need it most. Amidst the struggles, it's difficult to pause and appreciate the small moments when the weight of larger issues looms overhead. Life is full of hurdles and uncertainties, but wherever you are in your journey of healing, I'll be there to walk alongside you. Because even when hope feels distant, it's always within reach.

Therapy is a collaborative process in which we gently explore your history and build on your strengths to create a greater sense of connection to you and your loved ones. We will increase your capacity and develop tools to become unstuck. I use a person-centered, attachment-based, trauma-informed, and multicultural approach. I have significant experience working with those who are healing from interpersonal trauma and complex grief. I work most with young people and adults who are navigating anxiety, sexuality, relationships, and life transitions. I work with couples who hope to increase intimacy and improve communication.
