Adult Therapy

Psychological challenges such as anxiety and depression often create barriers to living the life of meaning and freedom you are looking for, leading to a lack of fulfillment.

Making the choice to begin Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy is the first step in a process aimed at teaching you the skills, strategies, and understandings to overcome these barriers and ultimately become your own therapist.

Young Adult Therapy

While challenges in life can come at any time, the amount of stressors teens and young adults are facing seems to be ever-increasing these days.

Dr. Yeilding has a deep understanding of these stressors, as well as the specific skills needed to help teens build resilience and confidence in their ability to cope.

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy offers these proven skills and a structured path to help teens overcome their stuck points and flourish into adulthood.

Group Therapy

YCBT Services currently offers a structured CBT for Social Anxiety Group, as well as a CBT for Insomnia Group. 

The groups are currently being held primarily virtually. The Social Anxiety Group takes place weekly over the course of 12 weeks. The CBT for Insomnia Group takes place weekly over the course of 6 weeks.
