I specialize in the treatment of trauma, addiction, eating disorders, mental health and relational issues. I provide a safe space for individuals to experience corrective experiences through a CBT approach. My goal is to help clients feel empowered through deep, challenging work. I am also extremely passionate about and experienced with family and couples therapy. I believe that therapy does not define an individual’s life, only alters it. I integrate complementary methodologies to offer a highly personalized approach uniquely tailored to each individual.

With MARRIAGE AND COUPLES I believe there are no "bad" spouses, only those, who keep trying to do the same thing to get a different response.
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."

With a background in movement, music, art and drama, I approach therapy as a creative pursuit rooted in clinical analysis. I have a trauma-informed approach, allowing space for the many layers of stress that our culture can bring about in an individual or within a couple. I draw on traditional psychodynamic, Gestalt, Emotionally Focused Couples therapy, and relational methodologies, while incorporating eastern philosophies, symbolism, somatics, and creative or spiritual practices.
