My Approach to Helping
Welcome! Sometimes it takes a lot of courage to reach out for help and I am so glad you have made your way here. Everyday living can bring us to experience loss, grief, depression, anxiety, stress, and much more. Some experiences knock us down and shake us around a bit. As humans, we are wired for survival. So, when we are going through traumatic experiences our mind will go into survival mode sending such experiences to our subconscious to help us continue. But, in time life will bring us back to face those feeling and emotions that got put aside to set us free of the irrational self-massage of “I am not good enough, I don’t matter”, and other negative self-messages. Like you, I too have suffered greatly and have been knocked around in life. Because of this experience, I believe that each of us has the strength we need inside of us to find solutions to the problems and difficulties we face in life. Faith, in my life, was a great help, and applying it every day became a powerful healing process that I continue to live by today.
My name is Yolanda Rosas. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California (LMFT). I have been working in the counseling field for 25yrs. I found my niche in life helping others to live life one day at a time. The mind is a very powerful influencer on how we feel and how we react in life. Pain, stress, and anxiety can be productive when it moves us in the direction of change. A big part of coping with our daily struggles is learning how to recognize early signs and symptoms to take preventative steps and care for ourselves.
I have experience working with individuals, couples, and families who are experiencing depression, anxiety, overwhelming feelings of emptiness, recent life transitions, grief and loss, chronic health issues, trauma, self-esteem, and relationship problems. Often, individuals seek therapy because they feel stuck or unsatisfied with a part of their life or want to explore negative patterns that are holding them back. I also work with individuals who are wanting to improve their feelings of overall happiness, life satisfaction, and self-actualization
