Desiny Yates

I obtained my Master of Social Work degree from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate approved by the North Carolina Certification and Licensure Board. I am a member of the Phi Alpha Honor Society for social work. My clients consist of children, teens and adults. I have completed additional training to clinically assist children and adolescents that have experienced trauma and utilize Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) as needed. I also incorporate other therapy modalities into sessions for children and teens which may include art therapy, play therapy, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness techniques. My goal as a clinician is to provide each one of my clients with a relaxed, safe place to receive support and guidance throughout their therapy journey. When I am not assisting clients, I enjoy traveling to both new and familiar places and spending time with my family. I enjoy music of all genres and love trying new foods, both local and ethnic.
