Hi! I'm Christal. Feeling like you are stuck? Feeling lost, isolated? Overwhelmed? Racing thoughts? Not sure about the next steps? Difficulty in articulating how you really feel? Life threw you a curve ball and you are in a tailspin? My heart's desire is to provide you with a safe space to express your thoughts and feelings, gain clarity, feel heard, and be supported. I'm a clinical therapist who works with teens and adults who have ongoing challenges with depression, anxiety, trauma, phase-of-life transitions, caregiving, and work-related stressors. With 28 years of clinical experience, my goal is to start encouraging you to see healing and transformation.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
Sessions will provide you with the space to express your thoughts and feelings. In feeling safe and comfortable, you'll be able to gain clarity and be understood and heard. The therapy process is collaborative. There isn't a "one size fits all" approach to therapy. Our sessions will fit your specific needs and concerns.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
I draw from strength-based therapeutic approaches & techniques such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, Dialectical-Behavior Therapy, and Solution-Focused.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
People who know me often say that I am a good listener who can help people feel heard and understood which helps people feel seen and start to heal.
