About Me

Greetings! My name is Crystal Bush, LCSW LCAS LISW-CP, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with you on your path towards change. I believe you are the expert on your own life, and the role of the the therapist is to help you more clearly identify and develop the strengths and skills you already have. Ours will be a therapeutic relationship with treatment provided from the comprehensive bio/psycho/social/spiritual perspective, meaning we will explore the science, the mind, the environmental, and to your level of interest, the spiritual basis and resolution to your concerns. Clients seeking Friday, Saturday, and Sunday appointments will be the best fit for treatment with me as my weekday availability is highly limited.

I received my early training and education through a Bachelor of Social Work from North Carolina State University and an Master of Social Work from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I have extensive experience in therapy for patients of varying ages in a wide variety of settings, including through use of telehealth. I'm prepared to be in your corner. Let's get to work!

Crystal is so compassionate and caring towards her clients. She validates feelings continuously which can be difficult to find in counseling. She goes above and beyond to assist you with retraining your thoughts and behaviors in a very realistic and rational way.

In the short time that’s she’s been my counselor, I’ve felt welcomed, understood and free to be as open as can be. Would highly recommend her!!

Crystal is a fantastic therapist. She is extremely knowledgeable, a great listener, and gives constructive, helpful homework, so that the therapeutic experience is continued throughout the week. She is kind, understanding and non-judgmental. I highly recommend Crystal as a therapist!
