Yolanda Bouligny, M.A., LPC-A
Supervised by Awa Jangha
BA in Social Sciences from Ashford University
MS in Mental Health Counseling from Capella University
After relocating to Texas in 2004, Yolanda obtained a Bachelor’s degree in social sciences and a master’s degree in mental health counseling, and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Counseling Education and Supervision.
She has worked as a daycare provider, elementary school teacher, as well as a home-schooling mommy of three children. She has also worked as a recovery manager and psychosocial specialist with adult clients experiencing severe mental illness. Although she is passionate about the family unit, she understands that it is critical for each member to have a healthy sense of self.
Her focus for individual clients includes self-esteem building, interpersonal/intrapersonal struggles, identity development, navigating life transitions, depression/anxiety, trauma, shadow work, family-of-origin issues, and ADHD.
As a native New Orleanian, she spends most of her time listening to jazz music, cooking gumbo (and other hometown faves), tending to her garden, minding her business, and sipping on a nice cup of Community Coffee
