Meet The Team


Dawn Yates MSW, LSW


My Name is Dawn Yates and I have been delivering counseling services to families, couples, and individuals for over 20 years. I have raised 5 children in this time period as well. I enjoy the satisfaction I get from seeing families, couples, and individuals progress towards their own goals and become self-reliant. I especially get a lot of satisfaction when I see how much they care for themselves beyond the therapeutic relationship.

Personally, I enjoy taking my kids and grandkids to do lots of activities such as four-wheeling, traveling, and swimming at the pool or the beach. I enjoy the memories I have developed and will leave for my family. I enjoy spending time with my three dogs since they greet me each day with a tail wag and a toy just hoping I will play for a few minutes and give them a treat. The best is cuddling with the kids and dogs every chance I get.

I am only accepting Medicaid Patients at this time.  


We have other therapist in the practice to offer a more dynamic and diverse experience.
