Mrs. Yolanda is wonderful as a counselor and a person. I love how she understands me and is not judgmental and how she takes the time out to actually listen to problems and respond. She is awesome.

The formation I’ve been given from the counselor thus far, are great tools for me to use. I think they will be very useful now, and later in my marriage.

Wow, Ms. Yolanda is such a understanding person. Very aware of the situation at hand and willing to offer positive feedback. The conversations dont sound like therapy, it sounds family. She's very dedicated in helping us with our marriage...

Yolanda, is a very good counselor. She listens and understands my concerns. I would recommend regain to everyone. Yolanda has been a huge help for me during dark and troubling times. I don’t know what I would have done without her help.

Yolanda's work has been invaluable. I feel like doing online counseling was a great solution for the both of us, and talking to Yolanda has allowed us to bond and work on our relationship.

My counselor is WONDERFUL and really listens to my concerns, no more how wild I seem. I make her laugh and she makes me laugh in return. I feel so much relief to be able to talk with someone without being judged and, to me, is what I need at this time in my life. I feel we have been friends for years!

I feel like she is doing great as our counselor and really helps us see the whole picture and that's something we have never been able to do. She hears both of us and is able to come up with exercises that are extremely helpful. She is great!!

Yolanda has been great. Always very responsive and gives us ways to work through issues that are practical. I enjoy our sessions because she is real and does not just choose one side or one way of looking at things.
