I'm Crystal Nesfield,
MC, LPC, SEP
Licensed Professional Counselor
I initially became interested in working in the mental health field after dealing with my own struggles with addiction and trauma. Before completing my Master’s Degree, I worked as a Behavioral Health Technician with people struggling with addictions, serious mental illness, and intimate partner violence. I received my Master’s Degree in Professional Counseling from Grand Canyon University in 2015. During this time I began working at the world renowned treatment center, The Meadows. While at The Meadows I was given the opportunity to work with some of the world’s top addiction and trauma experts, including Patrick Carnes, Stephanie Carnes, Bessel van der Kolk, Peter Levine, and Pia Mellody.
During my time at The Meadows, I completed my certification for working with sex and porn addiction through the Institute for Trauma and Addiction Professionals. When working with process addictions and substance use issues, I feel it is my job to meet you where you are at in your process and will work with you on abstinence or harm reduction work.
I have also received specialized training in working sexual issues thought the Institute for Sexuality Education and Enlightenment. I have received specialized training in Somatic Experiencing, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Post-Induction Therapy, Dialectical and Behavioral Therapy, and Mindfulness Skills. These forms of therapy can assist you with the delicate process of working through toxic stress and trauma.
I believe it is my job to meet you where you are in your process, without judgements, and to help to provide you the tools and support to meet your goals and to live within your value system. My goal is to create a safe place for you to work through any toxic stress or trauma you might be carrying.
