Yazmeen received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, with a minor in Spanish, from Benedictine University. Yazmeen has been inspired by Dr. Brené Brown’s work with shame resilience, perfectionism, and wholehearted living. Whether the child/adult is struggling with anxiety, difficulty adjusting to change, or other life struggles take hold, Yazmeen aims to empower her clients utilizing a strengths-based approach. Yazmeen hopes to provide mental health counseling to her clients through the combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), expressive arts therapy, and other forms of play therapy. Yazmeen enjoys running for exercise – she’s even traveled to Australia and Hawaii to run a 5k!
