Yenny has experience working with adolescents, and women struggling with behavioral problems, supporting individuals navigating difficult periods of their lives, trauma, grief & bereavement, mood disorders, relationship issues, and individuals with substance use issues.
Yenny has a Bachelors's and Masters's degree from Lewis University. Her counseling style is client-centered and she customizes interventions to meet each client’s needs and personality. Yenny utilizes a different set of modalities such as Choice theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, and Strength-Based approaches.
Yenny’s goal in therapy is to hold a space for her clients for them to feel safe enough to slow down, speak up, and get the chance to really feel heard. Yenny structures her sessions to be a moment of peace, where clients can really learn skills to help them feel a greater sense of control in their lives and learn to be a little kinder to themselves.
When she is not working, Yenny spends time with family where Sunday dinner is a tradition. During the week Yenny practices Pilates as it helps her unwind and stretch her body in a mindful and active way.
I support people in finding their strengths, building on them, and finding balance and contentment in the emotional, relational, physical, cognitive, and spiritual components of their life. I seek to create a safe and respectful environment for individuals and couples to nurture growth and healing.
I uphold the autonomy within those seeking help. I gently challenge them to courageously face life’s invariable disappointments outside the therapy room and to embrace opportunities to encourage others in their life journey.
