Hello and thank you for stopping by! My name is Crystal West, and I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California. I have worked with diverse populations across the lifespan and have yet to pick a favorite. I believe that we all develop coping skills based on our life experiences, but for many of us, those skills no longer serve a purpose or may begin to negatively impact our well-being. (i.e., A bullied child may learn to avoid social situations and as an adult, struggles at work or to develop healthy relationships.)

Most of my clients come to me because they feel “stuck” in their lives. They may feel stuck in unfulfilling patterns, a trauma cycle, a sense of purposelessness, grief, depression or anxiety. They may be caught in an oppressive societal perspective of what it means to be “healthy.” In most cases, these symptoms are not enemies, but indicators that something new – a new perspective, a new story – is attempting to emerge, like a sapling pushing its way from beneath the ground.

A little about me: I love going to CrossFit every morning. I am a huge nerd, constantly listening to audibles and/or podcasts such as Huberman Lab and non-fiction books. I enjoy being outdoors: snowboarding, motorcycle/dirt biking, hiking, any movement, &traveling. My parents are from Peru, so I visit there often. Tambien hablo español! Therapy can help your understanding of where your emotions come from connecting the past to the present, and decreasing the intensity by making sense of it.

I can help with anxiety, depression, PTSD, stress, parenting, life transitions, and more. My therapeutic approach is strengths based and solution focused. While I find the cognitive and behavioral lens of CBT, DBT and Narrative Therapy to be valuable, I believe it can be important at times to also incorporate Experiential Therapy, such as creativity, movement, and expression, as well as Somatic work for exploring the mind-body connection.

As a human and as a therapist, I understand that making sense of life and its impact can sometimes be overwhelming and traumatic in ways that can leave us feeling helpless, anxious, depressed, or simply stuck. It takes courage to seek help to find relief. That relief is possible in the safety of the space I provide where you know you and your story matter. I will hold your vulnerability and pain with compassion and authenticity while the process of finding new or renewed hope, healing, strength, wholeness, and vitality for life begin to unfold as the difficulty you are facing is shared and your journey supported.

More and more individuals have been coming in after relating to a social media influencer posts surrounding a variety of mental health concerns. We also see parents coming in with more awareness about signs of neurodevelopmental disorders and wanting evaluations for their children as early as possible so they can begin early interventions. We are here to help provide answers to those questions and guide the next step in treatment.

Female Therapists

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
