I'm Yvette Bonavita, a dedicated and compassionate therapist with a profound love for empowering individuals, parents, children, and families through the therapeutic journey. At the core of my practice is a commitment to support and accept each person on their unique path to personal growth and healing.
  • Passionate Empowerment: My love for empowering others drives my therapeutic approach, fostering an environment where individuals feel seen, heard, and understood. I believe in the transformative power of therapy to unlock one's potential and bring about positive change.
  • Holistic Counseling: In my clinical practice, I employ a holistic approach to treatment. Recognizing that each individual and family is a unique ecosystem. By addressing challenges within the family system, I      aim to create lasting positive changes that resonate across generations.
  • Committed to Growth: My commitment to ongoing professional development ensures that I stay at the forefront of therapeutic techniques and evidence-based practices. By staying informed and adaptable, I strive to provide the highest quality of care to those I have the privilege of working with.
  • Benefits of Counseling with Me: As your therapist, I bring a unique blend of connectivity and expertise rooted in my experience as a former researcher and adjunct professor in Human Behavior in the Social Environment.  Drawing from my academic background, I not only possess the knowledge to address complex issues but also excel in problem-solving. When you receive counseling with me, you'll have the benefit of the following:  Improved coping skills, Enhanced Self-Awareness, Identified Strengths, Tools to Practice/Apply, and a Collaborative Environment to promote personal growth
  • Focus and Specialties: As a distinguished child therapist, my focus revolves around creating a transformative and enjoyable therapeutic experience for children and youth. With a unique blend of expertise and a passion for fostering growth, I engage with my young clients through fun activities and play. This approach serves as a dynamic channel for them to express themselves, share their thoughts, and explore their feelings comfortably. The therapeutic outlet I provide becomes a crucial space for emotional expression and self-discovery, contributing significantly to their overall well-being.

      My specialization extends beyond individual sessions to have a meaningful impact on various aspects of a       child's life. By addressing challenges and facilitating growth in areas such as school, friendships, and family       dynamics, I ensure a holistic approach to their development. Through interactive and age-appropriate activities,       I tailor my sessions to resonate with the unique needs of each child, creating an environment where they feel       heard, valued, and understood.
       Moreover, I recognize the pivotal role parents play in the well-being of their children. As part of my       commitment, I equip parents with the necessary tools and insights to support their child's emotional and       psychological growth effectively. Collaborative sessions and guidance empower parents to navigate challenges,       implement positive strategies, and strengthen the parent-child bond. This holistic approach not only enhances       the child's overall development but also creates a supportive network within the family.
  I invite you to embark on a transformative journey with me, where empowerment, acceptance, and holistic
healing converge. Together, we can navigate the path toward a more fulfilling and balanced life.
