I believe in giving it to you straight wrapped with warmth and love. I believe we all have the power to make change but sometimes need a little help along the way. I provide individual, couples and family therapy to children, adolescents and adults. I have an array of experience from working to outpatient mental health clinics where I supervised psychology and social work interns to consulting at local schools to coordinating clinical programs. In addition I also enjoy weaving eastern and western philosophies into my practice.

I believe in human resiliency. I have witnessed profound healing, strength and transformation in lives through the process of psychotherapy. With a therapeutic relationship; awareness, learning and renewal occur. Relationships failing? Body image issue? Feeling stuck, insecure, depressed or anxious? Therapy supports emotional intelligence so that we can face these challenges with new perspectives. Introspection & support are an important part of objectively looking at ourselves, our habits, relationships and lives. With these tools, healing conversations, insight and more, change is achieved.

Sometimes we need to talk it out. Not for sympathy, but to find truth that guides us to our purpose and peace within ourselves. Struggling with self-conflict or with others? I use several methodologies: Brainspotting for trauma, Imago Relationship Therapy, Grief Recovery. I teach you to avoid pain, change behavior patterns, and dialogue with Safer Conversations for more creative, productive, and healing solutions. Her clients say, "I wish I had seen you before! Your depth of knowledge, empathy, and understanding of the real world have helped me build resiliency for my life's challenges, creating a sense of inner peace and joy."

Throughout our lives, we encounter a number of spaces where we feel our voices silenced. Continual experiences of being quieted can lead us to internalize messages that we don’t have the permission to speak – questioning whether or not to start therapy is no exception to this. As a queer, Korean-Japanese American, there have been countless times when I’ve been told that I’m not man enough, that I’m unfit for love, and that I don’t have a story to be heard. Much of my work is informed by the idea that, in order for us to heal, we must first feel like our perspective matters and that our struggles are deserving of support.

You are mad at yourself because once again you're in a relationship with a narcissist. Your partner was fun and charming, but now you realize that he/she; is only interested in himself, is incapable of recognizing their responsibility when things go wrong, angry most of the time, and often has terrifying rage episodes; tell you that you are the crazy one. You feel isolated and confused and longer able to trust your own reality. You mask the pain with alcohol, drugs, sex, over-spending, over-working, over-pleasing, and over-doing, but eventually, these ways of getting through bad days stop working. You want your life back.

In a rapidly changing and evolving world, it may sometimes feel challenging to preserve your peace and strength. Therapy is the choice to slow down and give yourself time to reflect on what parts of yourself need compassion, acceptance, or movement to change. My aim is to empathetically and non judgmentally align with you to enliven your purpose and desires. I utilize the therapeutic relationship to foster connection and explore resiliency and attunement with the self. In working with adolescent and adult clients, I meet you where you are respectfully and provide support to help you grow towards personal goals.

I believe we are born with the resiliency to handle life’s challenges. Early on, we develop coping strategies that don't always serve us in the long run. Whether you’re dealing with anxiety, depression, a life transition, a traumatic experience, grief, or relationship difficulties, we all need a supportive and compassionate other to join us as we untangle what's no longer working and discover new ways to access our inner strength and authenticity. I’d love to be this person for you.

Is your mind often hi-jacked by disturbing thoughts? Do you feel overwhelmed by painful and difficult emotions? Are you having a hard time sleeping at night or focusing on work/studying or other important people or matters? Are you having difficulties communicating your needs and setting healthy boundaries? Sometimes life can seem overwhelmingly challenging and make us feel stuck and unable to move at all which can lead to addictive or other destructive behaviours. Do you want to change your situation but don't know how? Psychotherapy can be your resolve.

Are you the "good girl" who works hard to do everything right, often at the expense of your own needs and well-being? Do you hide behind a big smile and an easygoing personality to cover up the sadness, frustration, and loneliness you feel inside? People in your life likely think you've got it figured out: A good career, solid friendships, maybe even a happy partnership and family, but inside you're tired and want life to be different, to be "more." Maybe it's time to start saying no to others and start saying yes to yourself.

Are you completely confused as to why you're still single and wonder why you haven't met the right partner yet?

During this unprecedented time of isolation, illness, and cultural and political upheaval, we are being deeply impacted both individually and collectively. The strain of these recent events can intensify ongoing stressors on every front; relationships, finances, physical and mental health - increasing feelings of loneliness, anxiety and depression. As a trauma therapist, I integrate psychotherapy and Attachment-Focused EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), a cutting edge therapy that works with the brain's natural ability to heal.

My clients like me because I am a very active therapist. You will not just get a "How does that make you feel?" question. Of course I want to know how something makes you feel, but I want for you to be able to get some answers and treatment that leads to a real change in your life. My website at Crystalnash.com states "Therapy can be intense, but it doesn't have to be drudgery. There is laughter through the tears, when we recognize our human frailty. The "Ah ha! Eureka!" moments give energy and hope for the future."

Have you attained success in your life, only to find that you feel resentful and burnt out? As a high achiever, it’s confusing to suddenly feel disconnected from the passion that has always driven you. Maybe this dissatisfaction has been slowly growing over the years & you’ve been able to manage it. But now you’re finding it harder to feel interested in your work or relationships. You may also be feeling exhausted & curious why your skills simply aren't working anymore. The habitual stress associated with being a powerful go-getter can also lead to a variety of health problems that medical doctors aren’t skilled at addressing.

You are there for everyone. Whenever. Wherever. You spend so much time being there for others that there’s no room for yourself. And let’s be honest, you’d rather not think about that. Giving the outside world what it needs is easy. Giving that to yourself is hard. It’s painful. You feel so awkward and uncertain of who you are in the world. You’re drowning in the muck inside you with no way of knowing how to get out.
