Crystal Blanton, LCSW

headshotI am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 20 years of experience in the counseling field. I have worked with culturally diverse populations in a variety of settings to support with concerns related to depression, anxiety, trauma, substance abuse, and other life challenges.

I utilize a strength-based, and client centered approach to the therapeutic process, incorporating personal strengths and direction from the person receiving support. I incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness and Solution Focused modalities to support the overall needs and goals of the individual.  

I have experience with adolescent, adult and family focused services. I am also very passionate about the integration of intersectional, cultural elements into our work, including the acknowledgement of environmental and societal elements that impact an individual’s experience of the world. I believe in the inherent worth of all people and supporting a judgement free space to explore the many intersecting parts of a person’s life to support overall wellness.

I am a certified substance abuse counselor, experienced in individual and group work related to substance use.
