About Me

Hello and welcome to Better Help! I want to start with a warm welcome, as I understand the importance of developing a warm and safe space to discuss personal issues. I commend you for taking this step with Better Help, as it takes courage to seek professional help. I would be honored to partner with you on your journey through life’s challenges.

My name is Crystal Ulibarri and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the great, big state of Texas. I earned my Masters of Social Work degree, with emphasis on border culture and military culture, from the University of Texas El Paso in 2013. I have worked in many different settings providing treatment, psycho-education and support to individuals, families and groups. I have worked with a variety of personal issues with clients on probation/parole, as well as working in the military community with active duty service members. My experience includes working with people with personal issues such as trauma, relationship issues, occupational stressors, grief, anxiety, depression, sexual/intimacy issues, addictions, stress and self-esteem. I believe that we all can benefit on a journey of self-awareness and discovery. I believe that through life’s challenges, we grow and become empowered by understanding our personal truths.

I have a passion for social justice issues and an understanding that social trauma impacts the mental health and wellbeing of our communities. My counseling style is client-centered, non-judgmental, supportive and empathetic. I am compassionate and sensitive to my client’s needs. I am straight forward, direct and at times, will respectfully challenge you outside of your comfort zone. I understand the importance of maintaining autonomy, dignity and respect.
I look forward to working with you!

Crystal is a patient and an understanding therapist. I have a bad habit of rambling and after I’m done she has a skill of summing up what I mean and providing a solution to the problem. She helps me feel seen and heard. I struggle with extreme anxiety and she has provided me with the tools to understand my emotions and navigate through them in a healthy manner. Thank you Crystal for your services. You’re going to have to deal with me for a while now!

She is an amazing therapist and listens without judgement. She has helped me to be mindful of my feelings and behavior and that has made a positive impact when dealing with depression and anxiety. I could only do therapy a short time due to finances but during that short time, she has helped me to be a more mindful person and for that I say thank you to her 1000 times.

The most amazing therapist I have ever had. She remembers everything and she is extremely attentive and responsive. I have been blown away at her sheer determination to help! She is truly the best of the best, and I am constantly counting my blessings to have found her (it only took me 30 years, countless $$$$, and many not so great therapists). Thank you so much Crystal for everything you have done and are doing for me!

Written on Oct 24, 2021 after therapy with Crystal for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, and coping with life changes

This therapy had been for my mom who ultimately decided she wasn't ready for therapy yet. Her decision, though, had nothing to with the therapist or the platform. I was the one who setup this account and communicated with Crystal. It's all been very easy, straightforward, and a method for therapy that I would highly recommend. Crystal went out of her way to assist us and even when I let her know my mom wasn't going to continue, she provided some resources for my mom to review on her own time. Crystal responded very quickly and was thorough in all she did with us. This was really a great experience and I would personally use Betterhelp and Crystal again - no question.

I find Crystal Ulibarri to be very professional and understanding of what my concerns are. She took the time to send some lengthy worksheets as a preview to not only help me , but I think to know what my situation actually was and she has been able to help me way more quickly than I expected.

Written on Jul 31, 2021 after therapy with Crystal for 2 weeks on issues concerning family conflicts, grief, and anger management

I have avoided counseling for a very long time. Don’t want to sit in a room and talk. Crystal has been amazing in letting me go at my pace, share when I want to, send a message when I want to and most importantly has pushed when needed and held back at the right moment too. I know I’m the one doing the work, but thanks to crystal I have been able to laugh, smile and enjoy family and friends again. Crystal is top notch and anyone assigned to her will find their path in their time and I believe that’s what’s important.
