Yvonne was an amazing guide and provided a gateway to understanding my current fears and behaviors by leading me through my past memories. In doing so, I was able to connect what’s going on now in my life with how I learned to deal with experiences and feelings as I was growing up. I was totally in awe after receiving her help. My life is more complete and less complex today because of our work together. I whole heartedly recommend Yvonne and Rhythms of the Mind.

We (as a team) are usually able to achieve your Goals in Treatment within one >three sessions. However, though one glove does not fit all ~ most issues are resolved by our third session as we begin uncovering the underlying issues which prompted you to seek treatment.
Honestly, ... growing up as a child of a veteran, my father returned home from Vietnam, ending up severely traumatized and was eventually hospitalized. I watched him disappear as my father, becoming so out of touch with reality... our family fell apart and I was left alone, abandoned, grief stricken, depressed and confused.
This experience caused me to want to understand the dynamics of the mind, how emotional trauma affects all aspects of our lives and by the age of 17, I dropped out of HS, to get my GED and get to college to study Psychology ~ which I ended up doing for the rest of my life ( in between my marriage and the time off raising my children).
Later in life, the subconscious drive observed in my patients/clients, led me to delve deeper and continued with more education in many therapeutic approaches to understand more ways to assist clients return to a place of Center, peace and calm in their lives by resolving so many of those unconscious conflicts we've forgotten ~ which has a direct impact on our peace and happiness today.
Professionally, I've worked with both men and women (of all persuasions) in long-term treatment as a Assistant Program Director/Counselor of a inpatient treatment center for women and,
Ive also worked in an all male treatment addiction treatment center. Both facilities were located in NY.
So I am familiar with gender issues issues ~ though treatment is primarily the same, generally speaking.
The privilege of taking a front row seat in witnessing the miracles of change occur in so many wonderful people...Priceless!
Participate in an Intake but you should also ask questions about their levels of experience with Your Issue(s) and observe their comfort level and ease in their response.
This will demonstrate an insight into not only their experience, but their style of counseling and,.. if you think you could enjoy working with them and can feel safe in sharing your experiences and vulnerabilities (if that applies) with this individual.
"Do you have experience with my issues."
"Can you share how it was resolved... What interventions did you utilize and how long did it take?"
See if they LISTEN to you... are they genuine and sincere? This is important to you..it's why you're seeking advice and direction. So is your well-being truly important to them.
