Hello and welcome. You have taken a big step towards helping yourself. Yvette hopes that she has the privilege of working with you.
Yvette Ramirez, MS, LPC is from San Antonio, TX. She received her undergraduate degree from Texas State University in San Marcos, TX, and Master’s in Counseling at Capella University.
She started her counseling career working with clients that were diagnosed with bipolar disorder, major depression, schizophrenia, or schizoaffective disorder. Yvette 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. She was promoted to the Integrated Care department where she practiced solution-focused therapy with clients that had medical issues that exacerbated their mental health issues, or vice versa. Yvette was trained and certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in the State of Texas and continues to utilize CBT in my practice today. After being promoted to a supervisory position for the Assertive Community Treatment Team, she 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. Yvette was the lead counselor for the team as well and was trained in Cognitive Processing Therapy to assist clients with the trauma they have endured and to teach them to challenge the negative thoughts they had about themselves regarding that trauma.
Yvette worked in private practice at Step by Step Counseling and Alamo Heights Counseling, Inc. part-time and expanded her counseling career. She is 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. She now works full-time in private practice and enjoys helping people like you every day reach their goals to feel the best they can. Yvette is person-centered and listens to your needs and wants to help you get to where you are feeling the most successful. Thank you so much for visiting her profile. She looks forward to working with you.
Yvette is happiest when spending time with family and friends, singing karaoke, relaxing, and watching a movie or her favorite show, at the beach, at the river, or on a trip.
