I have years of training, and experience, working with couples.
Creative people interest me--including those for whom the desire to create remains unfulfilled. I want to help you realize your potential as an artist and work through issues that prevent you from achieving your artistic and professional goals. Not infrequently, professional success (or lack of it) taxes one's relationships or allows one to avoid the arena of personal relationships entirely. We will explore the path of the creative life, with all its roses and thorns. Our goal is to locate that unique creative energy within you and to allow it expression within the context of a rich and rewarding personal life.

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."

I have been helping children, adults, families and couples in Southern California learn to understand and respond to challenges such as anxiety, depression and addiction.
I provide a safe environment and compassionate, non-judgmental counseling to help you explore the personal and relationship challenges you are facing and begin working toward lasting solutions. Whether you are looking for personal growth, relationship healing or overall support, I can help you to more clearly understand why you are struggling and what steps you can take to feel more confident and in control of your life. When you develop new coping skills, you give yourself the resources and confidence you need to effectively manage challenges rather than giving into unhealthy compulsions and negative self-talk.

Couples contact me because they cannot free themselves from fixed and repetitive conflict.
Individuals contact me because they are feeling joyless, depressed, hopeless or have unexplainable mood swings. Some are constantly worried, anxious, or panicked and may not know why, or how to calm themselves. Others struggle with chronic feelings of being inadequate or deficient and not feeling worthy of receiving positive recognition. Some are troubled by how over-reactive they can be to people, events or circumstances in their life. Others feel little control over their behavior whether it is outbursts of anger, compulsive sex, gambling, or substance abuse. And some have difficulty achieving and sustaining friendships or intimate relationships.

Therapy can help you resolve ongoing pain, trauma, or stress, and can also help you develop skills and strategies for managing problematic situations. It can also assist you with self-exploration and growth. Whatever brings you into therapy, you've taken the first step towards empowering yourself to make a positive change. Having the opportunity to work with someone can make a difference and it's important to find someone with the experience and connection to meet your needs. In order to feel empowered to make changes in your life, establishing an authentic, genuine relationship is crucial.
