Greetings! I am Yilanee Rivera Irizarry. I am of Puerto Rican descent, pet lover and proud mother of two amazing daughters. I have been living between Puerto Rico and North Carolina for the past five years now due to my military family, therefore I speak both English and Spanish. I have an invisible illness called POTS, for that reason it is my hope to bring more awareness for all who are battling just to make it through another day. I have experience working with the Hispanic community, domestic violence survivors, chronic ill individuals, children, the LGBTQ+ community and many more, it is an honor to work with each one of them.  


I graduated from Walden University where I completed my graduate coursework resulting in the acquisition of a Master’s in clinical Mental Health Counseling with highest honor. During my tenure at the Walden University graduate school, I was an active member of the Honor Society Chi Sigma Iota, Zeta Chapter, and the American Counseling Association. I pursued my undergraduate degree at the University of Puerto Rico where I acquired a bachelor’s degree in biology with concentration in General Science.
