Ryan Yates, MS, CRC

Certified Rehabilitation Counselor
Psychosocial Rehabilitation Services Supervisor
Mental Health Provider

I enjoy working with individuals from diverse and/or marginalized communities and groups. Building rapport and trust with clients (and the adults in their lives- for minors) is important to me. Years of experience has taught me that bringing an honest, relatable representation of myself will result in long-lasting positive outcomes.  

I am relatable, have a good sense of humor, and bring a dose of realism this and previous work in an array of environments. I am a continual learner who grows and advances my practice to best serve you. I enjoy helping people with mental health struggles, physical disabilities, chronic health conditions to overcome challenges and improve their quality of life).

 I most often work with males; adolescent-young adult males, as well as older adults.  I am matter-of-fact and realistic in my delivery. This approach helps you to break down cloudy, messy, and challenging situations into more manageable, processable, practical parts, which you can work on together. I use a results-based attitude to support you, keeping your end goals in view throughout your work.  I am eclectic in my use of therapeutic strategies and have a vast array of treatment tactics.

I am passionate about helping individuals who experience trauma, stress, anxiety, ADHD, anger, and conduct disorders (to name a few) to build positive, appropriate coping and regulation strategies. When working with adolescents-young adults, I believe in helping you to create a lifelong, positive skills base. I will provide you with social guidance, weaving socialization, and communication strategies into our work.  Together through practical applications, we will help you grow into a more productive, positive, and independent person.
