I work with a range of clients, from children who are struggling to read, to adolescents who experience signs of depression and anxiety, and I even help parents understand what their child is going through so that they can become an advocate for their needs. This is done through assessments, counseling, and offering parent consultation and supports. Additionally, I am able to walk families through the special education process and review IEP documents together as well.

Hello all, I am Crystal Purdue and have been practicing social work and working in the field of mental health for the past 9 years since graduating with my Masters in Social Work from USC in 2013. I currently am a clinical supervisor at a local nonprofit outpatient mental health clinic. When I am not supervising and educating future therapists, I like to focus my practice on maternal and parental mental health, specifically how our own trauma impacts the way/how we parent our children. I offer a sliding scale fee agreement that is discussed at first phone call to assist all clients with obtaining services regardless of income.

Life sometimes throws us a curve ball. Daily life struggles and stress that we have normally handled with relative ease can suddenly seem overwhelming. Too much stress and the inability to handle it properly can begin to undermine our potential to enjoy our work and to care for ourselves and others. Finances, parenting, relationships, school, care taking, health concerns, and loss can be stressful aspects of life. When we begin to internalize these external stressors it can lead to depression, anxiety, anger, addiction, poor health, phsysical/emotional exhaustion and relationship problems.

Are you always a little bit afraid that your anxiety will show up at the worst time? I know the feeling! Anxiety can be scary, even when it shows up when you are leaving the house, meeting a friend, or ordering food. Everyday tasks don’t seem that easy with anxiety around. I want to help turn the volume down on your anxiety so that even the simplest asks will become easier. I like to use a combination of CBT, ERP, and Mindfulness to help reduce anxiety. I am now currently accepting new clients via tele-health!

I enjoy working with a wide variety of clients and strongly believe that as a therapist my job is to be the fellow traveler of those that seek the road of recovery of whatever their challenges might be. I have great respect for those individuals that seek to overcome life challenges that impair their lives and have the determination to reach out for help. I am also a Christian Pastor, who clearly predicates inclusiveness and love without any trace of judgement, welcoming all and embracing diversity.

I specialize in providing couples with the tools to navigate the "growing pains" of marriage. Whether it is communication issues, high conflict, being caught in a negative cycle or infidelity, I am here to help. I provide you with the tools to create a better, stronger and a more fun marriage! I am solution focuses and goal driven, giving you the results you need now not over years of therapy. Traditional couples counseling focuses way too much on re-hashing conflict, and not enough on the tools to navigate conflict.

What type of Aliso Viejo mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Aliso Viejo?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
