About Me

Hello,
Welcome! My name is Crystal, I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. I understand that something in your life has initiated this search for support and you’ve come to the right place. You may be feeling, sad, angry, anxious, depressed or you may be struggling with OCD or addiction. I understand how you maybe feeling at this moment and I am hear to help you through this stressful troubling time. Here is a little about me and how I plan to support you: My counseling philosophy is that, you are the expert in your own life. You being the expert means, that we will work together to come up with the best skills for you to move from the place you are to the place you want to be. We work together to help you learn skills to navigate from your current situation, to a new place in your life. My role is to guide and support you in learning and implementing the skills and confidence needed to help you improve your overall life. Together, working as a team, We can come up with the best skills to ensure success. I am down to earth, and I make myself available, so that I can provide a listening ear, relevant feedback and support when needed. I look forward to meeting you and working together to ensure success.

My therapeutic style involves helping you to arrive at insight, strategies, and tools that you can begin using immediately to make positive change in your life. We don’t just sit and talk. I love to provide you with concrete tools wherever possible and help you to have a plan for the following days before our next session, if that is the pace you would like to move at. Some of my Favored therapeutic modalities are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness and Positive Psychology, Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Structural Family Therapy (SFT), and Family System Therapy (FST). These are just a few of the tools and skills I use to help you obtain your goals. Most importantly, we are going to make sure we are making progress on goals that you have for yourself. I will be there to guide you, encourage you, possibly even challenge you if I feel you are unknowingly allowing obstacles to stand in your way.

What makes me different?
I will ensure that as soon as you sign up with me I will work with you to get you seen the same week, even if our first session is on the weekend. I will engage with you not only during our weekly session but we will be able to connect and communicate daily if wanted. I do weekly check-in's to see how you are doing throughout the week and to ensure you are working on your goals. I will also reply to your messages within 24hrs or sooner. If you choose to work with me I would try my best to ensure you are seen within the same week you have signed up with me, if you are not seeing a good day and time please message me so we can set you up on the scheduler for this week.
I look forward to working with you soon.

Crystal is an awesome and very supportive therapist who has always helped me. She is always thinking of ways to help my situation and challenging me when I need it. I truly appreciate her.

Crystal is very insightful. She picked up on particular body language and responses to questions in order to make pointed suggestions.
