John Francis Crowe, MS, LMHC, BCSA, Counselor in Albany
My approach with my clients is collaborative, interactive, and respectful. I am an eclectic therapist because trauma affects each individual differently. I view the client as the expert on his/her journey and myself as a consultant or guide. I focus on releasing the shame and pain of the trauma/abuse using tools and approaches with which the client is most comfortable. Together we create as safe a space as possible so that this work may occur. I am a strong believer in skill building, empowerment and visibility as antidotes to shame, secrecy and victimization.
I am a therapist who has worked with survivors of trauma for 30 years. Since symptoms always arise in a context, I find it helpful to explore individual histories using a family systems approach. I view symptoms as adaptations to trauma and am not confined by diagnostic labels.
I work with men and women who have experienced traumatic life events from sexual assault to combat trauma to the death of loved ones to living with chronic illness. I use traditional talk therapy, EMDR, and bodywork in whatever configuration is agreed upon. Choice equals empowerment for most survivors.
