Services

I counsel, I coach, I consult. I do everything within my power to provide guidance and create a safe space where you can release all things that do not serve your highest purpose as well as embrace the person that emerges from the shedding. You are worthy of being holistically well.

“Happiness takes effort.
You don’t stumble upon it.
It doesn’t find you.
It isn’t a
constant
automatic
state of being.
You dig for it.
You demand it.
You refuse to allow moments
to eclipse it. You choose it.
And everday you have the option
to choose it again and again.
You decide”

Counseling

I utilize an eclectic approach fused in humanism and psychodynamics to provide a service tailored to each client’s individual needs.

Coaching

Coaching focuses on a persons specific personal goals, from college planning to job navigation, from dating to marriage.

Consultant

For me consultation means having conversations that work to dispel the myth that mental health is not worth nurturing.

Yulinda Renee

Her passion for helping others began as a child and eventually led to a position as a mentor at the Rogers Park Youth Network at the age of eighteen. After nine years in social work, having held numerous positions and serving a beautifully diverse population with various needs, she transitioned to counseling.

I’d Love to Help

I Have Experience With…

Clinical Counselor
Yulinda Renee “The Spiritual Clinical Counselor” is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Board Certified Sex Therapist, Kink Conscious Therapist, and Energy Worker providing a myriad of counseling services to a diverse clientele with a specialization in relationships and families. From CBT to Tarot she utilizes all resources at her disposal to help all those she work with stand firmly in their truth and get in alignment with their divine purpose and highest good.
Sex Therapist
I am a licensed clinical counselor and Board Certified Sex Therapist. My therapeutic style is warm and genuine. I value a team approach to client work. I utilize gender responsive treatment informed by relational therapy, and implement mind-body techniques to build self-awareness.
Relationship and Marriage Therapist
Every relationship comes with its fair share of issues. Navigating the complexities of life together is hard enough, but when you start to feel regularly distressed or hopeless, about your relationship, it may be time to seek professional help. No matter what your issues seem to stem from (disagreements about money, sex, stress, chronic illness, mental illness, infidelity, trust, emotional distance, parenting etc.), if you and your partner are arguing more frequently and experiencing feelings of resentment or contempt, it is likely that there are some underlying problems to address. Because many problems in relationships are a result of communication issues, a qualified mental health therapist can help you find new ways of talking to each other to  find your way back to common ground
Adolescent Therapists
Today’s teens and adolescents face a variety of unique issues. Adolescents are still figuring out who they are and what their place is in the world. They may be struggling with questions of identity, sexuality, and relationships. Adolescence is also when a number of mental health problems (such as anxiety or depression) may first develop or become noticeable.
Anxiety, Stress, and Depression
Feeling a certain level of anxiety over big stressors or certain life events is totally normal. However, if you find that your fear or worry does not go away and, in fact, gets worse over time, you may be suffering from an anxiety disorder. Depression is a mental health disorder that affects mood, including how you feel, think, and behave. Everyone feels sad sometimes, but when it starts to affect your ability to perform daily tasks and your ability to enjoy things that typically bring you happiness, you may be suffering from depression.
