***As of February 1st of 2019, YANA Counseling Services LLC will not be taking any new clients or referrals for counseling services***



Welcome! Our journey towards creating a counseling space guided by compassion, love and acceptance, began as a vague idea when the three of us met while working together as substance abuse counselors. Our passion for people connected us instantly and that lead us three years later to join our efforts, expertise, and vision to originate YANA.

YANA stands for "You are not alone". Our hope is that you feel heard, understood and supported through whatever circumstances bring you to us. Personal growth should be enlightening,  providing more than just therapy; helping you to reconnect with yourself to create a life of purpose and joy. We will identify reoccurring patterns and themes running throughout your experiences and find solutions that are realistic and applicable.


Thank you for visiting!

Our Values






Cultural Competence

The Therapeutic Relationship

Making the decision to start therapy takes courage. It shows a desire to rethink our choices and a hope for change. We believe that the right fit between a therapist and client is essential to the success of any treatment. This important relationship is the springboard for safe exploration into the areas of your life that you find challenging. 

Personal Growth
through Therapy

Therapy can be a tremendous asset to managing personal growth, interpersonal relationships, family concerns, marriage issues, and the hassles of daily life. Our counselors can provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or assist you with identification of a solution.

Because each client has different needs we personalize therapy treatment to meet the specific needs to the issues and goals of each individual. We will work together on exploring issues in your life that you would like to gain clarity on and will schedule therapy sessions to a time frame and frequency that is most conducive to you reaching your desired goals.
