Professional statement

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.

Message to clients

You cannot change your past, it is Done; You cannot predict a future, it is mostly unknown; however you CAN live in a present and create a life you envision for yourself.

I believe therapeutic relationship is build on trust in the core. It is a collaboration that can help you to overcome your limited beliefs, help you to get "unstuck" and motivate you to become the best version of yourself.

You took the first step and reached out for help and guidance. It means you are ready to make the change and live life you deserve and always wanted. It is time for you to accept and love yourself for who you are with no judgement as i believe relationship with yourself is the most important relationship of all.

One of my favourite quotes of all times:

"The Most Important Time Is Now"

- Leo Tolstoy
