Navigating the dating scene can be frustrating. I can help you understand the unspoken rules and expectations of our dating culture. I wrote my thesis about hookup culture on college campuses and how that taught us unhelpful dating habits that we carry into adult dating. I would love to help you navigate dating and relationships. I have provided therapy to kids, teens, and adults who struggled with difficult life transitions, family separation, depression, anxiety, and grief. I have also worked at a homeless shelter for young adults who struggled with addiction, PTSD, and incarceration. I utilize CBT, DBT, and analytical psychology.

I know counseling works because I have been through it. Take it from someone who has served 9 years in the army, as a medic, deployed twice, divorced, and was abusing substances because all of these events hindered my spirit. Is life easy? No but you can make it way easier. That's the trick and that's what I am here for. I may not know all the answers but I am willing to discover it with you. I may have solutions that are different due to my upbringing (being half Korean and white had many learning lessons growing up and life). To find the answers to instill proper actions for a better quality of life is the goal. That's my mission.

We all have our own story that needs to be told and we need to "feel" heard without judgment. Children just as adults, want to tell their story and feel & know someone is really listening. At BHCS we pride ourselves on meeting the client where they are while providing a safe and comfortable place to begin healing. We all have our rough patches in life and as Murphy's Law would have it, "life" did not come with an instruction book on how to navigate through the rough storms. Children, the same, just less experience and less knowledge; children do not act out for no reason; they just do not know how to express themselves yet.

Accepting New Clients: I understand how difficult it is when choosing a therapist; so I try to provide the most safe environment possible. My strengths are teaching people to use tools necessary to be more effective in their lives, relationships and find piece of mind. I believe safety and having a non-judgmental stance are among the most important aspects of the therapeutic environment. Even though it may be difficult to initiate the process of therapy, having someone assist you in making sense of internal confusion can result in insight and clarity that is often very difficult to achieve alone.

My strengths include listening with a non-judgmental ear, assisting people to develop and use the tools necessary to live more authentically, and improve their relationships and overall quality of life.

I believe that healing is possible no matter how deep the wound. Sometimes all we need to do is take a step of faith into the unknown and enter into a safe space where we can “let go” and learn who we are amidst our pains or struggles. I approach healing from a holistic perspective by addressing how the body, mind and spirit are impacted by our past trauma and wounds. I offer tools for learning how to self-regulate the nervous system, thus allowing the body and mind the freedom to heal. Faith is also important to me, and I welcome the opportunity to integrate a faith-based approach to therapy if you as the client prefer that.

I believe the path to wellness involves taking a deeply personal journey back to self. We cannot fully connect with others without first connecting with ourselves. My name is Crystalyn Jones, and I have been a Licensed Counselor in Arizona since 2015. I am an EMDR trained therapist that specializes in complex trauma. I utilize Structural Dissociation Theory along with EMDR to help people integrate parts of themselves and find resolution to unprocessed trauma. Meditation personally changed my life, so I enjoy encompassing mindfulness into my practice and teaching even the busiest minds how to meditate.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
