About
Me

I'm Crystal Nesfield,

MC, LPC, SEP

Licensed Professional Counselor

My journey into the mental health field was sparked by my personal experiences grappling with addiction and trauma. Prior to earning my Master’s Degree, I worked as a Behavioral Health Technician, aiding individuals navigating addictions, severe mental health issues, and intimate partner violence. I attained my Master’s Degree in Professional Counseling from Grand Canyon University in 2015, concurrently beginning my tenure at the esteemed treatment center, The Meadows. Here, I had the privilege of receiving training from leading experts in addiction and trauma, including Patrick Carnes, Stephanie Carnes, Peter Levine, and Pia Mellody.

During my tenure at The Meadows, I obtained certification in sex and porn addiction therapy through the Institute for Trauma and Addiction Professionals. Furthermore, I underwent extensive training in Somatic Experiencing, including touch work, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Post-Induction Therapy, Dialectical and Behavioral Therapy, Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy, and Mindfulness Skills. I have also received specialized training in sexual issues from the Institute for Sexuality Education and Enlightenment. These therapeutic modalities are instrumental in guiding individuals through the intricate process of healing from toxic stress and trauma.

Central to my approach is meeting individuals where they are in their healing journey, devoid of judgment, while equipping them with the tools and support needed to align with their goals and values. My aim is to cultivate a nurturing environment where clients can confront and overcome toxic stress and trauma, facilitating their path to holistic well-being.
