Welcome! My name is Crystal. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor that has been working with adults, children, adolescents and families for over 14 years. Something in your life has initiated this search for support and you’ve come to the right place. I applaud you. It takes a wise person to seek out counseling support in getting the life they want. I want to help you get there. Here is a little about me and how I plan to support you: My counseling philosophy is that, you are the expert in your own life. You being the expert means, that we will work together to come up with the best skills for you to move from the place you are to the place you want to be. We work together to help you learn skills to navigate from your current situation , to a new place in your life. I use Person-Centered and Strength-Based styles to help each person come up with skills needed to help you in your current situations. My role is to guide and support you in learning and implementing the skills and confidence needed to help you improve your overall life. Together, working as a team, We can come up with the best skills to ensure success. I am down to earth, and I make myself available, so that I can provide a listening ear, relevant feedback and support when needed. I look forward to meeting you and working together to ensure success.
My therapeutic style involves helping you to arrive at insight, strategies, and tools that you can begin using immediately to make positive change in your life. We don’t just sit and talk. I love to provide you with concrete tools wherever possible and help you to have a plan for the following days before our next session, if that is the pace you would like to move at. Most importantly, we are going to make sure we are making progress on goals that you have for yourself. I will be there to guide you, encourage you, possibly even challenge you if I feel you are unknowingly allowing obstacles to stand in your way.
You may find it helpful to know that I have a lot of experience being the client in a counseling relationship and I was very picky about what I looked for in my therapist/counselor. I am a person who needs to know I can say absolutely anything to my counselor and they won’t think any less of me. I need to feel understood, validated, and (I’ll admit) almost admired in their presence in order to feel that I can say things that I hold back from saying in my ordinary life. If this is the kind of relationship you would like to have with your counselor, too, then I understand you and you’ve come to the right place.

It is relatively early days but I am already impressed with Crystal. She is easy to talk to and has offered me actionable advice on several occasions.
Crystal is super patient, kind, and understanding. She finds away to make your appointments count and fit both of our schedules. At no point do I feel judged or looked down upon, she makes me feel comfortable opening up.
