Christy Crespin


About Me

I am Christy Crespin, LCSW, licensed in California in 1995. I graduated from California State University, San Bernardino and obtained my license in clinical social work while working with families and children in the probation and foster care settings. I have over 30 years of experience working with adults in various settings including vocational rehabilitation, a forensic hospital setting, and families and foster care in a community mental health setting. I have worked through treatment modalities including Solution-Focused, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Client-Centered, and motivational Interviewing.

I strongly believe in the power of self-determination and that each of us is endowed with innate strength that we may need guidance to tap into, provided our avenues are explored, validated and empowered in a safe environment. Growth and change are difficult and it takes courage to step out in faith to discover who we are and that we can make changes so we live in balance at our optimal best. I hold the belief that each of us is a unique and precious child of the one who created us. Everyone is capable of working through difficulties to come out better on the other side, but at times we may need to summon the courage and strength to allow a therapist to assist. It takes being vulnerable and questioning our patterns to explore and embark on a path yet undiscovered, and I enjoy walking with others on their journey through life.

Christy has been so helpful to me during this transitionary time in my life. She is empathetic and really helps me work through my stresses and anxieties and gives me action items and worksheets to do to help me work through my thoughts. I highly recommend her!

After two sessions I already feel better. Christy has insights and tools to help me deal with my family issues.
