I have spent the past 13 years in public education with the prior 6 counseling students/young adults. My experience in public school education a unique perception when helping parents helping their children who are experiencing difficulties. My main areas in counseling are working with those who are experiencing depression, anxiety, and identity adversities.
I use eclectic and uses a broad range of theoretical approaches, including, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused, Reality Based, and psychoeducation to counsel adults. Otherwise I use approaches that fit your personal needs. I will also utilize a holistic approach by exploring with and educating my clients about how their mind, spirit and body are interconnected. I see adults for a variety of reasons including divorce, relationships, grief, depression, anxiety, trauma, life changes, etc. I strive to create a safe and nurturing atmosphere in which individuals can be supported in their efforts to change and grow as well as become reconnected to their strengths and dreams. My theory is that when people have hope and can learn to challenge and replace irrational thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes, people are free to experience change.

Crystal has been wonderful to work with. She listens, is respectful, empathetic and understanding. She offers me various ideas of how to address a given concern and then helps me come up with ways to overcome barriers to achieve my goals. I'm so grateful I've had her as a sounding board as I've gone through some particularly challenging life events.
