For those people who are unable to go out due to chronic medical issues and/or significant emotional difficulties. I am a broadly trained, board-certified licensed clinical social worker providing psychotherapeutic services for adults in their living environment. In my practice, I mostly use the psychodynamic approach, which touches on natural human reactions to stress as well as existential challenges related to life experiences.
I have twenty two years of experience in working with a wide range of presenting problems including depression, anxiety, identity issues, trauma, family conflict, and relationship difficulties. I also have a specialty in infertility and adoption. I work with clients to understand the root of their current difficulties, and to help them develop the insight that they will need to avoid repeating problematic patterns. I meet the client where he/she is at to work on the issues that feel most relevant and interfere most with their enjoyment of life. There is a focus on symptom relief and on building introspection and self-esteem.

Together, we will gain a clearer understanding of the obstacles that stand in the way of realizing the changes that you desire. With this awareness, we will focus on enhancing your skills so that you can replace patterns of thought and behavior that are not working for you with more effective alternatives that ultimately lead to greater satisfaction in life.

I specialize in working with individuals facing anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, loss, and relationship difficulties.

I believe that unspoken, unresolved themes within a family can have a crippling effect on its members.
I believe that therapy has the power to help us feel less alone and change the way we view ourselves. Have you ever felt like there’s something wrong with you? That the things you struggle with are somehow “easier” for others? Or you’ll only be ok if you do X, Y, & Z? If so, I may be the right therapist for you.

I was drawn to become a psychotherapist by a desire to walk with people as they navigate life’s twists and turns. I have a warm and nurturing style, believing that often only when we feel supported by another are we are best able to realize our potential. I also like to quote Victor Frankl, a survivor of the Holocaust, “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response there is growth”.
Dr. Joe Yanni is a caring and skilled psychologist, whose experience has had its base in educational settings that specialized in assisting adolescents and their families with social/emotional difficulties. Dr. Yanni works on relationships with his clients based on trust and a desire to help the clients move forward from their current issue. Working with clients to identify the issue, understanding why it is causing stress, and the multitude of factors that may result in its persistence, are all crucial aspects of the healing process.

Depression, anxiety, isolation, co-dependency, suicidal ideas, are almost always manifestations of unresolved Trauma. Sadly, trauma is all too prevalent in our world, and people often believe they have little power to overcome it. Medication to reduce symptom intensity is important in a crisis. Its value in these moments is unparalleled. But while it can suppress your symptoms, it does not heal you in the long term. Have faith that you are RESILIENT! You have amazing strength and an inner healing intelligence. My role will be to guide you through the healing process so you can begin to live with self-love and hope.
