Meet Your Therapist
M.A., Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern
Mental Health Therapist
My name is Yuleisy (you- lacy) Cardoso, founder of Mindful Journey with Yuleisy. I am a mental health therapist, published author, teacher, reverend, and mother whose passion is helping and teaching others how to fill their cups with self-love so they may walk in their authentic truth.
I graduated with a bachelor's in Psychology from Florida International University in 2007. I graduated from the University of Central Florida shortly after with a master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and Mental Health Therapy in 2011. During my graduate years, my background and research were primarily mindfulness meditation, a tool used to help rewire and reshape the brain, so we are thinking and feeling differently and experiencing better moods.
Additionally, I am a published author in counseling and my community on the topic of Mindfulness meditation and practices. Presently, I offer telehealth mental health therapy to anyone struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD, chronic stress, or spiritual ailments. I also actively facilitate mindfulness workshops throughout the communities I serve and host online courses that teach others the science of living a happier and more fulfilling life with the evidence-based tool of Mindfulness and Loving-Kindness Meditation as a daily practice.
In 2021, I became a certified Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapist and a Psychedelic Integration Therapist. I now provide KAP sessions and integration sessions through my private practice via telehealth.
My healing journey with psychedelic medicine began in 2018 in the mountains of Mexico with the help of an 86-year-old curandera (medicine woman) and psilocybin as the medicine. I was relieved from symptoms of anxiety and deep depression instantly. While I appreciate traditional therapy, I have experienced how effective and fast-paced psychedelic-assisted treatment is in my healing and with my clients. This non-traditional but evidence-based path provides individuals instant relief from depression, anxiety, PTSD, and trauma. Individuals are finding relief within hours of being administered psychedelic medicine, and it is when coupled with psychotherapy, that psychedelic-assisted therapy works best.
My clients' healing is essential to me and something I take very seriously. Those that have worked with me know and feel the divine love, compassion, kindness, and safety in our sessions. I feel honored, grateful, and blessed to be a part of a client's healing journey as I get to be a witness to their beautiful awakening, remembering, and divine transformation. Thank you for allowing me to be a witness to your spectacular growth and evolution.
