Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Director of Lincoln Counseling Center, Lincoln, CA http://wwww.yvonnesinclair.com Licensed Marriage Family and Child Counselor -State of California Board of Behavioral Science California CE Provider 5106 Certified Anger Management Specialist with National Anger Management Association Master in Counseling Psychology, National University, B.A. in Dental Hygiene, Loma Linda University Associations: California Association of Marriage Family Therapists, American Association of Marriage Family Therapists I have seen a little of life and my life experience assists me in knowing what tools you might need to acquire the relationship happiness you are seeking. After 30 years in a physical healing profession, I realized healing our inner self was of utmost importance. Physical health is affected by our emotional health and vice versa. I listened to my patients tell about relationship, family, and personal concerns. I did not have the knowledge to help them and decided I wanted to do just that. I am now a licensed Marriage Family and Child Counselor in California with a Master in Counseling Psychology. This year marks my fiftieth year in a healing profession. My need to change my life work and the adventure of completing that process helps me support clients in their need for change. I have lived on a farm, in a city, in a small town, in the foothill/boonies of California, been married and lived alone. I have had a soul mate connection and a bad choice for marriage. I have lost a love and know the deep pain that accompanies that loss. I am a parent of two children and a Nana of four. I have been a parent, step-parent, and foster parent. The Reason I Became a Helping Professional Being a healer, whether physical, emotional, spiritual, or mental, is a rewarding path. Assisting others in finding their inner true self, their "muchness" is what I am all about. I adore watching another soul discover they are wonderful, worth loving, and outstanding. The truly despicable part is the fact a child's pure true self was destroyed. Guiding that soul to themselves is a joyful ecstatic experience for me. Sometimes it is the quiet times that feel the best. Being accepted by another human without strings or ulterior motives. Allowing reality of existence, no pretending, just the true self. No need for walls or masks. Being myself. My inner beauty shines much brighter than any outer shell we could imagine. Feeling good from the inside. Being real. Showing myself and knowing I will be loved. Quietly authentically me, that feels the best. Board of Behavioral Science California CE Provider 5106 Online classes are interactive. Self-study and electronic courses differ only in the way the testing is administered. If the student submits the test answers through the mail or email, the CE hours are considered self-study. Hours earned with interactive online testing are considered regular CE hours. Our online testing allows you to complete regular hours required for license renewal. Self-study is limited to one-half of the total required hours for renewal. You can check the specifics of the criteria at www.bbs.ca.gov. Check out my website for current classes offered, http://www.ceu4counselors.com My internet programs are based on methods used successfully by 1000’s. In my private counseling practice I see children, families, couples, and individuals. I address most issues around relationships, healing from abuse, parenting, anger management, and many others. I create and facilitate retreats and workshops for couples and singles. My celebrated couples retreats and workshops address counseling issues about relationship enhancement, sensual safe touch, tools for communication, and self actualization. I have a passion for helping my clients attain joy. I have studied several modalities and draw from them to show you the way to love. I delight in attending trainings and classes offering tools that will help my clients grow and find happiness. In my face to face counseling I may use art therapy, hypnotherapy, talk therapy, or sand tray world play therapy. I drew from this same knowledge base in the creation of my books and self-help products. Having the right tools is important in whatever you are seeking to accomplish. I am a little like the hardware store. I have tools for you. Tools to help you get your relationship, not only on track, but headed in the right direction. Tools to assist in healthy expression of anger. Tools to make parenting more enjoyable and less stressful. The tools I offer in my private practice and self help online programs are the tools I have found, over the years, to be successful in helping my clients achieve their goals for love and inner strength. A great soul mate connection often just happens, but keeping that connection alive and sizzling takes attention and the right ingredients. I love to see couples come together with the help of my tools. I have the secrets to a happy sexessful marriage. Love happens. I adore watching the hope return and hear how communication improved or the emotional intimacy had deepened. The mission for my online self help programs is to offer relationship advice for any couple or individual with access to information, easy to follow step by step instructions, and professional assistance available. You are in charge of the pace of your growth and change. My self help products show you how to attain relationship enhancement and healing. You are in charge of which tools you incorporate into your life. Whether you are a married couple seeking relationship help to save your marriage, a committed couple wanting marriage counseling services, a new couple looking for a counseling before marriage, a couple in trouble seeking online relationship counseling services, a person looking for abusive relationship counseling to save their relationship, or an individual searching for relationship advice or healing from infidelity, my program will have tools to help you find happiness and create a solid loving connection. The format of my anger management programs has been used by thousands to successfully change their way of expressing anger. My anger management includes programs for children, teens, and adults. I am a Certified Anger Management Specialist with the National Anger Management Association. My anger management self help programs also embrace the time tested effective methods I have found successful in my private practice. My website offers court ordered anger management, co-parenting, and domestic violence online classes. How to Revitalize Your Relationship, A Step by Step Guide, begins with effective communication training, leads you through fair fighting, healthy anger expression, family of origin issues, control, all the way to HOT monogamy. Eight easy to follow audio book CD’s. Each chapter is offered with step by step instructions and exercises to help assimilate the new ideas and behaviors into your life. On my websites I offer free help in the form of articles, information, explanation and examination for depression, and resourceful links. You will find information on health, happiness, counseling, relationships, parenting, diet, and fun.

I would welcome the chance to add you to the successful clients I have known.
