Is your child saying the below phrases?

If you are hearing these phrases from your child you are not alone. Many parents do not know what to do when they have tried everything to support their children socially. I work with your child to help support them socially by reducing anxiety and/or depression so that they will want to be with friends and have the confidence in themselves to express their needs and wants with their peers and family. 



We can help bring you back to a reduced state of anxiety or depression.   Here is how we make this happen.

Use catchy, fun text to tell people what you offer.


This happens by weekly sessions as well as through communication with family.



We believe in keeping family and other providers involved in treatment, if given permission by the patient and family members.  We are available to support my clients through email or phone in between sessions as well.

Use catchy, fun text to tell people what you offer.

CBT treatment usually involves efforts to change thinking patterns. It has been demonstrated to be particularly effective for depression, anxiety, marital problems and even alcohol and drug abuse.

Use catchy, fun text to tell people what you offer.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy

We will help you regulate your emotions, cope with stress, and improve your relationships



I use dialectical behavior therapy to teach people how to live in the moment, cope healthily with stress, regulate emotions, and improve relationships with others.

"I know that every client has different mental health needs.  This is why each treatment plan is different."

Yael's philosophy and approach to counseling is to enable both children and adults to find their way to superior mental health and stay there.  She knows that each person has arrived at their current situation in a different way.  It is for this reason that each person must arrive at their ideal state of mental health through a customized, tailored plan that meets their individual needs.  This is why she is so excited to join Cutting Edge Counseling, and looks forward to meeting you and helping you on your personal journey to mental health and happiness.

The Importance of


Struggling Adolecents/Teens are not "Broken"

Rather, they are confronting the human experience of coming into conflict with their environments. This is a process that is especially intense for adolescents as they develop and grow. When society teaches teens that they are “not enough,” they sometimes seek to address that pain with dysfunctional behaviors. What they are truly in search of is a sense of belonging and connection with themselves and those around them. We support adolescents by teaching them the life skills and self-understanding that allows them to find their place in the world.

If you feel like you are in need of additional support, I can see you during the week as well as on the weekends.  Contact us at 847-306-6477 and we will get back to you within one business day.
