Crystal is perfect for me.

For a first-time therapy seeker, Crystal was exactly the person I needed to talk to. I was wary of finding the right fit for my personality and needs. Crystal really supported and helped me to disentangle the anger and anxiety-inducing strands in my life as I balance a toxic work environment, caregiving, and marriage stresses. Mostly importantly, she guided me in strategizing healthier and practical ways to address these issues.
