These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Yvette Smith. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with ReGain might be different.
Yvette has made a positive and lasting impact on our lives. I appreciate her caring nature along with the way she challenged me and told the uncomfortable truths that I needed to hear. I felt supported and championed. I highly recommend Yvette if you want a therapist who is down to earth, encourages you to identify and address parts of yourself that you ignore or suppress, and will be on your team to cheer you on.
Yvette has a kind, understanding personality, with the clarity to call you out on things that can be improved about your owm behavior or beliefs. its always a great experience to receive help from her, cant recommend Yvette enough!

Yvette is kind, caring, and truly cares about what we are going through. She offers amazing help and tools to set us up for success!! She’s fantastic!
Yvette was amazing in being non bias in marriage counseling for my husband and me. She was down to Earth, relatable, and real.
My husband and I just started counseling with Yvette and have been happy with her timely and insightful responses. We both feel heard and she has helped to facilitate better communication between us so far. I’m looking forward to the breakthroughs to be had!
Yvette is very helpful and understanding. She can understand what me and my husband fell. She become our mediator when there is issue in our relationship. We fell much better after counselling with her. Our relationship improves in a few weeks.
