Yolaine Menyard, MSW, LCSW

Psychotherapist, Clinical Supervisior

Yolaine Menyard, LCSW, is a psychotherapist, supervisor, and trainer who works with individuals and couples using holistic, psychodynamic, and anti-oppressive approaches to healing. In addition to working with people dealing with anxiety, depression, and grief, Yolaine has extensive experience with racial identity and trauma, including sexual abuse.

Yolaine provides a space for patients that centers their multiple identities and explores how their experiences, past and present, influence how they feel and the choices they make. Together, she works with patients to identify and address interpersonal and structural-based trauma and incorporates somatic techniques to help folks explore the connection between stress, trauma, and their bodies. Yolaine sees therapy as an act of love, community, and resistance to the status quo. She supports folks in deepening their understanding of the different parts of themselves to ultimately get to a place where they can choose how they want to engage in the relationships in their life, without guilt, shame, or judgement.

In addition to her therapy practice, Yolaine supervises clinicians and provides supportive services to staff in social justice organizations dealing with COVID-19. Prior to joining the Critical Therapy Institute, she worked in justice reform spaces and has over 15 years of experience working with young people, adults, and families. Yolaine is a licensed clinical social worker in the State of New York and holds a master’s degree in social work (MSW) from the University of Chicago.
