Yolonda Pawelski, LMHC

Primary Therapist | Port St. Lucie & Stuart Offices

Are you feeling like you are unable to cope? Do you feel that you have challenges that prevent you from living a fulfilling life? Therapy can allow you to be seen and heard. If you are plagued by feelings that you are not good enough, you don’t matter, or that you make terrible choices, then EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) can help. Depression, loneliness, guilt, and anxiety are byproducts of unresolved trauma that can be processed through EMDR therapy.

As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) with a Ph.D. in Education, Yolonda specializes in EMDR. Yolonda is an EMDRIA-approved EMDR therapist who primarily focuses on adults. EMDR is an evidence-based and fast-acting method of treatment for several common mental health ailments resulting from feelings driven by unconscious beliefs or cognitions developed in childhood trauma or adversity.

Yolonda received her MA in counseling from Liberty University in Virginia. She is genuine and motivating, committed to the therapeutic relationship, and devoted to helping those in need. She has experience treating addictions, co-occurring disorders, PTSD, trauma, behavioral and process disorders. Her education and counseling experience has consisted of working with diverse backgrounds which has provided her with a deeper understanding and awareness of differences among individuals. She strives to empower and improve others’ outlook and quality of life.
