Yvette has a particular interest in working with adolescents and young adults in urban communities, within the DCFS and penal systems, as well as those that have been referred to as “difficult “. She believes that this population is “young enough to create meaningful change in thier lives and old enough to recognize and appreciate the impact this change can have on the rest of their lives”. To meet this objective, Yvette integrates a culturally sensitive perspective and eclectic theoretical approach to empathically connect with youth in an effort to join them in exploring depths of emotional spaces that motivate behavioral change and press relative self-actualization.
