Yonnette Stephen is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor located in Weston, FL. Yonnette works with adolescents, teenagers, young adults, and adults, as well as families. She specializes in helping clients with depression, anxiety, stress management, and grief. Her clients feel overwhelmed by their emotions, whether those emotions are fear, insecurity, sadness, or loneliness. She also helps people with their relationships, including the relationships they have with partners or parents.
Yonnette’s approach to therapy draws from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Clients explore, with Yonnette’s guidance, their values and learn what’s important to them. By aligning their lives to these values, they can reduce some of their negative feelings and begin to feel more in control of their emotions. Clients also change their patterns, incorporating healthier habits into their daily routines. Yonnette’s sessions are a safe and supportive environment, and she helps clients find peace and joy in their lives.
