Ryan McCrea


About Me

I am a licensed independent clinical social worker in Idaho and have more than 15 years of experience providing counseling services to clients facing the challenges of depression, anxiety, bipolar, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder, and addiction. I also help individuals see their way through difficult periods of life, for instance feeling hopeless, lost, confused or grappling with grief and loneliness.

In counseling sessions, I focus on forming a positive therapeutic bond that is genuine, warm, and non-judgmental. I employ techniques based on the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy methodology, which has proven to be effective in bringing about desired change through evaluating thoughts and behavior to better align with one’s desires and promote growth. I work with individuals to determine their goals and then provide support for setting measurable steps toward achieving established objectives.

Many people find it difficult and overwhelming to reach out for help. Once that door has been opened, you will find acceptance and a willingness to meet you where you are. No two journeys are the same, and together we can chart a course forward.
