Ms. Yvette Ramirez, MS, LPC received her Bachelor’s degree from Texas State University in San Marcos, TX, and her Master’s degree in Counseling at Capella University.
I started my counseling career working with clients that were diagnosed with bipolar disorder, major depression, schizophrenia, or schizoaffective disorder. I would visit the client’s in their homes and help them understand their diagnosis, teach them how to cope with symptoms, and teach the importance of medication adherence. I was promoted to the Integrated Care department where I practiced solution-focused therapy with clients that had medical issues that exacerbated their mental health issues, or vice versa. I was trained and certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in the State of Texas, and continue to utilize CBT in my practice today. I was promoted to a supervisory position for the Assertive Community Treatment Team and led a team of 13 case managers, nurses, and LCDCs, which worked with clients that were high utilizers of the local mental health hospitals and were in crisis often. I was the lead counselor for the team as well, and was trained in Cognitive Processing Therapy to assist our client’s with trauma they have endured and to teach them to challenge the negative thoughts they had about themselves in regard to that trauma.
I worked in private practice at Step by Step Counseling and Alamo Heights Counseling, Inc. part-time and expanded my counseling career. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprogramming to help those who have lived through a traumatic event that is causing distress in their lives or clients that endure distress that they find difficult to handle. I now work full time in private practice and enjoy helping people like you every day reach their goals to feel the best they can. I am person-centered and listen to your needs and want to help you get to where you feel the most successful. Thank you so much for visiting my profile. I look forward to working with you.
I’m happiest when I’m spending time with my family and friends, singing karaoke, relaxing and watching a movie or my favorite show, at the beach, at the river, or on a trip.
