Hello! My name is Crissy, I believe the best work is done in treatment when there is trust and a positive clinical relationship. Everyone has different issues as well as different ways of facilitating change. Therefore I focus treatment on the needs of the individual which my be eccletic and ever changing. I hope to help clients find their own way to a positive outcome. I am very warm and engaging with a respecful approach. My experience in counseling over the past 21 years includes work with invidivuals and couples. Areas of practice include, but not limited to, Depression, Anxiety, Abuse and Trauma, Intimacy issues, relationship issues, anger management, LBGTQ, self-esteem, parenting issues, motivation and adjustment. I also worked with adult students needing career guidance. Recently, I have been working with victims of online image abuse (revenge porn) and abusive relationships. I have a Master's Degree in Counselilng as well as a Bachelor's in Art Therapy and have worked with Art, Drama and Journaling in Therapy.
It takes courage and strength to take a positive step towards a better "You". I look forward to supporting and empowering you during this journey.

Crissy is warm and easy to talk to, and she made phone counseling feel very personal. She helped me sort through some very tough emotions. I appreciated her encouraging emails as well. I highly recommend her for anyone who wants support while working through a crisis or tough time.
Empathetic and practical: a great combination!
I was with another counselor before I become a client of Crissy's. The other counselor was also on the Betterhelp network, but we just could not connect in a way that I wanted to from a counselor. I requested to change counselors and I was partnered with Crissy. Immediately, she did things to get to know me and my personality, she took the time to understand my personality, and she jumped right in to help me with things that were going on within my life. She respected the fact that due to my personality, I did not want to do phone or face to face counseling because I found it easier to open up via typing the information to her. I have only been with Crissy for a short time, but I appreciate the time and attention that she gives me, respects the choice that I want to make about my counseling, and takes the time to work with me and my problems in life.
Crissy is incredibly intelligent and I like that we have a lot in common. She approaches my statements with thought and understanding that I can see in her responses.
Crissy is a good counselor. She listens, shares her opinions, and is knowledgeable and understanding. I’m so happy and grateful to have an awesome counselor in my life. Crissy and BetterHelp are changing my life, I’m very grateful. Thank you Crissy and the Better Help team.
