Kelly Crow, LCSW
As a Social Worker (SW), I have 25 years experience. Prior to that, I wore the badge of a policeman for 16 years. As a SW’er, I have worked with families, K-12 kids and adolescents with pending legal issues. The K-12 kids primarily had ADHD, childhood trauma and oppositional attitudes/behaviors. I also worked with all branches of the military, dealing primarily with soldiers and their families who were involved in domestic violence (DV) incidents. Many of these were special forces and green beret soldiers who experienced Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) related to their combat experiences. I also worked for 4 years in in-inpatient psychiatric settings. Before working in clinical settings, I supervised three emergency receiving homes and maintained a counseling office supported by the state’s Baptist Convention.
As far as counseling techniques, that totally depends on the particular need and the mental condition of the client. I like using cognitive-behavioral therapy CBT) to evaluate cognitive distortions of the client and help them to adjust and better cope with their environment. With stronger clients, I won’t hesitate to use Gestalt Therapy to challenge or confront a them. As needed, I also employ grief and relaxation therapies.
Finally, it my viewpoint that most people seek counseling to help them find peace in their lives. My goal is always to help the client gain a sense of peace, which comes from lessening their internal storms.

From our first conversation, Kelly put me at ease. He listened carefully to everything I had to say and responded thoughtfully and with compassion. He provided many good options for me to try, to help sort out my issues. He has excellent insight into human behaviour and is completely non-judgmental in his approach. I've been very satisfied with his help.

I highly recommend Kelly.
He was very professional and helped me find the answers I was looking for.
