Yolanda Thomas, LPC
I’m Yolanda Thomas, a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Wisconsin. I have worked in the mental health field for over five years and have been practicing as a therapist for four years. If you are experiencing hardships relating to anxiety, depression, life changes, or trauma, do not hesitate to reach out to me. I primarily utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in conjunction with Narrative Therapy to assist you in telling your story and identifying how to change the outcome or rewrite the narrative.
Everyone has a time when they need support and struggle with asking for help. I know this from my own experience and interactions with others. When someone comes to me, I want to be sure that they know that I understand first the difficulty in deciding to ask for help and second that they feel safe enough to trust me with their story, thoughts, and emotions.
**At this time, I am providing therapy sessions for adults only.**
• Relationship issues
• Trauma and abuse
• Anger management
• LGBTQ Support
Providing Clinical Consultation Only
Hi! My name is Beth, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been working in the social work field for about 10 years. Most of that time was spent working with children and adolescents either as a school-based therapist, child protective services case worker or community health/wraparound behavioral health clinician. I really enjoy working with teens and young adults. Helping those individuals with anxiety and complex childhood trauma (especially Domestic Violence) understand they are not alone. I work to provide a safe, nonjudgmental space for them to explore emotions, challenge thought distortions and change behaviors. Yet while I have a passion for teens and young adults, I also have a special interest in helping first responders, emergency personnel and others in similar fields who may be struggling with vicarious trauma. Just as with the teens and adolescents, I can provide individuals troubled by vicarious trauma a safe, nonjudgmental space to process. My unique experience prior to becoming a social worker provides me with an ability to empathize and relate to this population of individuals.
I have a Master of Social Work from George Williams College/Aurora University in Lake Geneva, WI and I also have a Master of Criminal Justice from University of Wisconsin, Platteville. I relocated to North Carolina from Wisconsin in Oct 2021. I am also a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Wisconsin as well as North Carolina.
My approach to therapy is collaborative, flexible, client centered, and strength based. Approaches I use are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (I am trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Client Centered and Strengths based, with a strong emphasis on holistic wellness and self-care as a protective factor. I believe success in therapy centers around the relationship between therapist and client. It is your life, and you deserve to live it the way you want. My role is to help you get there.
