Luna Medina-Wolf is the owner of Helping Moon Counseling. What would Luna like you to know about her?

I am a licensed mental health counselor who works with individuals, couples, and families experiencing different obstacles that can cause high levels of emotional pain and anxiety. Some negative experiences arise from ineffective communication skills, substance abuse, trauma, school problems, and others that may contribute to feelings of anxiety, depression, anger, and more. I am passionate about helping people overcome traumatic experiences they experienced in their lives.

I continue my professional development with the American Counseling Association, American Mental Health Counselors Association, and Florida Counseling Association in order to bring the best and most current practices to my clients. I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC), Master Certified Addiction Professional (MCAP). I have a strong background in working with individuals who are struggling with substance abuse, who have experienced trauma and those with disabilities. My love for my career and the compassion I possess for my clients make me an effective therapist.

My approach to counseling pulls from several theories. I utilize Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), Trauma Incident Reduction (TIR) to process traumatic event. I also incorporate motivational approaches, cognitive behavioral therapy, as well as solution-focused and self-help resources. My therapeutic approach begins with exploring thoughts and feelings in a safe, and respectful environment, where everyone can feel appreciated and heard. I believe in providing clients with a holistic approach in improving their lives. In order to improve a lifestyle, you have to approach it from a mind, body, and spirit relationship. There is a strong relationship between these three components that affect well-being.

The goal of therapy is to help you find balance and clarity that includes your voice, the voice of your loved ones, and one that honors each individual’s hopes and dreams. I believe that change is possible and that each client has the power to learn the skills needed to better their lives.

I am fluent in English, Spanish, and Hebrew. My private practice is located in the heart of Boca Raton, Florida.

Yocheved’s goal is to provide a safe and caring place for client’s to unmask themselves and to get in touch with their pain, vulnerability, and fears in order to propel them in a positive direction of becoming their more authentic selves.

Yocheved focuses on using an eclectic tool box as there is not ‘one size fits all’ to therapy. Some of the main modalities Yocheved uses include Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), meditation and mindfulness practices, strength perspective, unconditional acceptance, and more, but above all, Yocheved connects to your essence and believes in your power, even when you may be overlooking it.

Yocheved believes we are all the product of our past experiences, family and societal culture, influences, limiting beliefs, and so much more. Luckily, our brains can evolve and change with awareness and goals, which mean everyone has the ability to change and grow! It is the privilege and passion of this therapist to walk along this journey with you!
