Tierra Yonker, LCSW, LCDC

*Licensed in Texas and Wisconsin*

In 2011, I began an internship in a women’s residential setting for substance abuse and knew right away that counseling was my calling. As I began my career as a counselor, I very quickly recognized the complexity of individual experiences and how trauma and grief is deeply connected to addiction and other mental health issues. Issues like addiction and eating disorders aren’t just their own problems, they are a way to cope with those painful experiences.

I firmly believe in meeting clients where they are at and creating a plan for therapy that is individualized to each person’s circumstances, needs, and goals. I love thinking “outside the box” and using techniques in addition to talk therapy. I love incorporating movement into therapy, and also use Sand Tray Therapy.

Working with me is about becoming empowered and building on the strengths you already have, even if you don’t recognize them yet!

Let’s Get Personal

I enjoy being in nature, yoga, baking, and doing crafts. I have new kitten that is keeping things crazy at my house, and I love all animals, so I pet every dog I can.
