Crystal Hoffman

(LCSW)

About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker with 8 years experience in counseling/direct care and an additional four years experience in supportive roles for mental/behavioral health. I have worked in family care (residential) settings, in-patient psychiatric hospital settings, school and community based services and with a Federally Qualified Health Care Center (FQHC) healthcare setting. I have worked with clients (youth, adults and families) experiencing a wide variety of issues to include family dynamics, school/work related stress, depression and anxiety, loss or change and trauma.

I realize I might not be everyone's cup of tea as my style is a little different than some. I believe in using a combination of motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy and internal family systems to approach my clients. I also utilize components of play therapy not only for children/youth but with my adult clients as well! I love to work collaboratively with my clients for treatment planning, goal setting and outcomes and rely on a positive client/therapist dynamic to set the tone for our meetings.

I recognize that in today's society, there is such an amazing choice for mental health providers, with a vast array of experience. I look forward to meeting new clients and challenges and helping you face whatever issue you might be struggling with so, together, we can set you on the path to healing.

Written by L.I. on Aug 25, 2020 after counseling with Crystal for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and self esteem

Crystal offers practical tools to get over the mental roadblocks that can come with anxiety and stress. She helps me identify behaviors associated with my anxiety and coaches me on ways to interrupt the cycle of negative thoughts that prevail during stressful instances. Most of all I appreciate her directness because for me that makes her advice easier to commit to memory.
