expressive techniques for children, adolescents, teens, and young adults

Hi, I'm Crystal and I am Licensed Professional Counselor. I received my M.Ed in Counselor Education from Virginia Commonwealth University. I have been working as an elementary school counselor for the past twelve years until deciding to pursue further certification as a LPC so that I could practice outside of the school setting. I enjoy working with children, adolescents, teens, and young adults. I use many different approaches and techniques and try to personalize my therapy to what works best for the client. I believe the most effective way to reach children is through play and expressive techniques. My hope when working with people of all ages is that with support and empowerment, I can help them move outside of their existing comfort zone and enrich their lives.

emdr, cognitive &dialectical behavioral, family systems

Hi! I’m Monica Dabney, a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 15 years counseling experience with children, adolescents, adults, and families in several settings to include group home, long term care, residential, intensive in-home, private, and outpatient. I obtained a Master of Arts degree in Professional Counseling from Liberty University. I am a trained Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapist and use it to treat conditions that affect the client’s mental health. My theoretical framework consists of using an integrative approach with an emphasis on client-centered, cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavioral, family systems, and solutions focused interventions. My areas of focus include trauma, emotional and behavioral stressors, relationships, life changes, and transitions. The first step to seeking change is you. Making yourself mentally fit is an uncomfortable process, but with time, you will begin to understand yourself differently, building a new path and developing new worldviews. Being brave is listening to your knowing, doing what is beautiful, and finding direction on your path for healing. My goal is to create a safe space that encourages exploration of challenges to ultimately foster growth and healing.

LGBTQ+, stress, Trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, life transitions, Polyamory

Having been on the other side of the chair, I want to you know that the healing process is in your capable hands. This is a challenge but you have everything you need to thrive already with you. Let me be there to reflect, hold space, encourage, and guide you to higher levels of awareness. Together we can create a treatment plan to support the navigation of your emotions, symptoms, communications, and the systems you are a part of. I am formerly a PreK-5 educator and I bring direct, creative, effervescent, nurturing, and bright energy to sessions.  We will brainstorm and co-create your treatment plan using expressive techniques, behavior tracking, psycho-education, cathartic interventions, and trauma-informed cognitive challenging. I help clients become their best selves by identifying behaviors, exploring symptoms, and maneuvering creatively. I work from a multicultural and gender-affirming lens.  If you think therapy isn't for you or alternatively if you are ready to dive deep into personal work, let me be your guide. I would love to meet you where you are and celebrate your story. I currently have openings for individual clients of all ages (5-65+) and have experience with trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, LGBTQIA+, and polyamory.
