About Me

Welcome and thanks for being here!

I’m Celtiyote* and I’m a licensed professional counselor, a life coach, a single parent to 3 teens, a cat-lover, an avid reader, and a music-addict.  Oh, and I run this website you’re on, too.

At DIY Self-Therapy, I share self-therapy skills and self-help for anxiety, depression, and life’s rough patches. For inspiration, I draw from cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance & commitment therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy, along with my clinical experience, my formal counseling education, my life experiences, and the wisdom of others.

While I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC), the information provided at diyselftherapy.com (and its FB page) is intended for information and skill-building purposes only, not to treat clinical levels of depression or anxiety or other mental illness. People seeking a diagnosis or treatment of depression, anxiety or other mental illness should consult a medical practitioner or mental health professional.

In addition to my professional experience, I also have personal experience with depression, anxiety, and some of their nasty friends.  People helped me and I helped myself, and I pay it all forward.  I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

If you have questions or suggestions, feel free to email me at celtiyote@diyselftherapy.com.  Thanks for being here!


If you don’t feel better after trying self-therapy, or you feel worse, please talk to a therapist or your doctor.
