She/Her/HersLicensed Mental Health Counselor, LMHC Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
Yelena Augustin is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor located in Lake Park, FL. Yelena specializes in working with individuals and couples who feel like they’re on the brink of feeling happy, however cannot get over the line. They are frustrated that they can’t seem to live the life that they want and seek help to become unstuck, especially in their daily routines and relationships. Yelena also works with clients who suffer from the impacts of anxiety and those that have a hard time controlling their emotions, often finding themselves crying, anger, or panicking over everyday occurrences.
Yelena’s approach to helping her clients begins with encouraging clients to learn more about themselves. She takes clients through conversations about their values: what’s important to them, why it’s important, and how closely they’re living by these values. She then empowers clients to identify and leverage their individual strengths, including their resilience in past experiences. Yelena also draws from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy to teach clients how to assess their thought patterns for roadblocks, assumptions, or harmful self-talk.
Yelena earned a Master’s degree from Palm Beach Atlantic University. She has over 10 years of experience supporting clients in a collaborative, solution-focused style. Her goal is to equip clients with the tools they need to be their best selves and to engage in the life that they want for themselves.
