Yvon Roland, Licensed Professional Counselor
As a humanistic therapist, I am here to assist you in embracing self-compassion and self-awareness while developing meaningful relationships. When a person steps forward to create their own life meaning, it encourages a more fulfilling personal journey. My responsibility is to walk side by side with you as you gain the courage and confidence to trust your judgment and recognize that you are the expert of your life. During our time together, it is my priority to provide a safe, nonjudgmental environment that promotes growth and positive change, for you. Therapy is a process that can move you toward being the healthiest version of yourself and living the life you desire.
I always consider my life as a work in progress. I stay curious about life and constantly explore ways to remain passionate, confident and resilient in my daily living. I wish the same for my clients.
When supporting individuals, I utilize a person-centered and experiential approach, which begins with helping clients acknowledge their internal and external strengths. In addition, I guide clients in developing an intentional mindfulness practice as an effective management tool for stress and anxiety.
As a relationship therapist, I prefer the Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) approach in helping couples and families reconnect and rebuild relational balance. I am passionate in assisting couples with filtering through their individual emotions to encourage empathic responses during moments of distress or conflict.
Neuroscience research reveals individuals that practice self-compassion and mindfulness are happier, more resilient, and better equipped to heal painful memories from the past. It is my honor and mission to help my clients move past what’s blocking them from reaching their full potential individually and in their relationships.
