Hello beautiful soul. Are you often depressed, stressed, and full of anxiety? Are you unhappy and dissatisfied with yourself and your life? Do unspoken traumas steal your peace? Perhaps you feel disconnected and unloved. Maybe you are a successful professional but feel very unfulfilled. There is a better way of existence, and you are worth finding it. As spiritual beings living a human experience, we are meant to become our best Selves and to live a life full of joy, peace, and fulfillment. You can experience clarity, confidence, and love.

Hi! My name is Yanina Marti, and I am a Bilingual Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. I have always been passionate about helping others and sharing my knowledge.

It is a privilege to be an Outpatient Therapist. My clients are the BEST teachers. I would like to teach my clients to be their own therapists and/or to re-parent their parts to function in this world at their highest ability. I completely and thoroughly appreciate and am grateful for every moment even the not so good ones (usually the lesson we need to learn). I want to help my clients learn happiness comes from within, happiness is their responsibility and we ALL deserve to be happy and to feel loved and accepted. The journey is the challenge and turning challenges into opportunities is the goal.

Licensed Professional Counselor, MA, NCC, LPC, CAADC, ICAADC
I work with individuals, family, and couples ranging from children, adolescents, and adults ranging from ages 14 to 80. I address issues such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, , grief, drug and alcohol addiction, marital and relationship issues, positive communication, positive parenting, behavior modification, goal and career setting, self esteem, and relationship enhancement. My view of counseling is a helping process. Helping you make choices about what you want to be, have, do, and give to others. This involves a process of coming to an awareness of your needs and wants in a confidential, safe and accepting environment..
Life can be hard. I understand... I have worked professionally counseling my clients for over 30 years. We work together to find answers to the struggles they are facing, and I have found that if a person truly is ready for change, with the right help and Helper, change will come. We all get "stuck" sometimes and may lose hope, but there IS hope. "We'll get through this together."

I have experience working with a variety of mental health needs such as Depression, Anxiety, Personality Disorders, Trauma and PTSD, Crisis Management, ADHD, Identity and Sexuality. My ongoing determination to continue my education maintains my license and guides me toward new skills and practices to better help my clients.
My main purpose and hope in offering these services is to support those of you who really need to make changes in your lives. Changes that will empower you personally. Changes that will improve relationships with those you love, including family and friends. Changes that will diminish mental and physical pain or sorrow.
Your distressing emotions may be what bring you to therapy, but they can also be a doorway to hope, curiosity, insight, and self-compassion. They provide an invitation to access the strength and worth within you, and an opportunity to heal and move forward with greater ease. I have the privilege of working with individuals that are experiencing the anxiety, sadness and confusion that arise from complex trauma. These show up as issues in relationships, feelings of overwhelm, "stuck-ness", low self-worth and difficulty finding joy in life.
Regardless of circumstances, I believe every person has the capacity and resilience within themselves to find the path they want to live. By providing education on possible approaches to help, and allowing you to decide what fits your needs, best demonstrates my understanding that you have the ability within to heal. Working together to understand the role emotions play, we can then understand the messages your emotions offer, increasing awareness of the changes needed in order to find your desired path.
