About me

I have a background in working with children, adolescents, couples and families, providing individual, group, and family therapy. I have been practicing as a licensed professional for two years. My theoretical orientations include Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Family Centered Treatment; however, I frequently use Client- Centered Treatment and Mindfulness interventions when deemed appropriate. In addition, I have received rigorous training in mental health wellness recovery, marital counseling, substance abuse assessment, systems and family assessment, depression, co-occurring disorders, suicide prevention, and anxiety. I am a member of the American Counseling Association and I am in full accordance with the ethical codes of this organization. I believe in providing an environment that will enable you to become self-aware and work towards achieving wellness, by developing a therapeutic working relationship with a focus on setting specific goals as they relate to your individual needs. Homework assignments may be given to assist in working on concerns outside of our sessions; completing and discussing these assignments honestly will be beneficial in accomplishing chosen goals.

My name is Crystal Scarborough and I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor. I have been in this practice for 5 years and I have worked in various settings such as hospitals, private practice, schools, and in the community. I currently focus on individual, couples, and family therapy. I've worked with many populations including the LGBTQ+ population. I have a dual Masters Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Career Counseling. There are many factors that influence the processes and outcomes of counseling. The foundation necessary for effective counseling includes a supportive counselor-client relationship, openness, trust, and understanding. Building such relationships results in the development and implementation of a treatment plan. The client will explore and identify specific goals, in which he or she wishes to attain through counseling, a plan will then be cultivated by the counselor as a blueprint to his or her journey throughout counseling. The client is encouraged to be fully invested and motivated to carry out the plan of treatment, in order for it to be effective. As a mental health counselor, my interests include issues concerning anxiety, stress, self-esteem difficulties, relationship issues, women's, life transitions, behavioral issues.
