Chinnika Crisler, LCSW
I am a licensed certified(clinical) social worker in Mississippi, with over 13 years of experience working with adults as a therapist, but I have been a Social Worker for a total of 21 years. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns, and life challenges including, but not limited to depression, anxiety, other mental health issues, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, grief and loss issues, chronic illness management etc. I also help many people who have experienced physical/emotional trauma or abuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution focused therapy, interpersonal therapy, motivational interviewing , and psychoeducation. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes strength and courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Even though I have only spoken with Chinnika once so far, she made me feel safe, secure, and she is quite a comfort with which to speak. I look forward to our next conversation
