Crystal Strickland, MS, APC
Associate Professional Counselor
Do you sometimes feel like no one actually hears what you are saying? Do you know that you want to make some changes but simply do not know how to start? Are you suffering from depression, anxiety, low self esteem or relationship conflict? Do you remember the last time you were really happy?
Hello, my name is Crystal and it would be my privilege to be part of your mental health journey - whatever that looks like for you. It is my goal, as a therapist, to help you attain your greatest level of happiness in life.
Although the majority of my clients have been young adults, I have successfully worked with clients of all ages and with couples. My specialty areas are anxiety, trauma, self-esteem building, depression, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, ADHD, and couples counseling. I recently completed the Gottman Method Couples Therapy Level I training and commonly utilize Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, but it is my belief that therapy should be individualized to each client. I also enjoy incorporating art and other expressive therapies into counseling sessions.
I see clients at the Gainesville office on Monday and Wednesday evenings as well as Saturdays. Teletherapy is also available upon request.
I accept the following insurance as well as private pay clients: Aetna, Cigna, Humana, and Blue Cross/Blue Shield. My private pay rate is as follows: $90 Initial Intake Session which lasts for an hour and a half, $75 for individual therapy, and $85 for couples counseling. I look forward to being part of your mental health journey!
