I'm Crystal Nesfield,
MC, LPC, CSAT
Licensed Professional Counselor
I became interested in working in the mental health field after dealing with my own struggles with addiction and trauma. I began my journey in the filed as behavioral technician, working with addiction and serious mental illness. After several years working with mental health, I began a program to complete a Master's in Professional Counseling.
As part of my training and experience, I have worked with populations who were experiencing domestic violence, addictions of all kinds, childhood and adult trauma, and serious mental illness. I previously worked as a Primary Therapist and Trauma Therapist at the foremost treatment center for men that addresses trauma and sex and love addiction, Gentle Path at the Meadows. I had the opportunity to work as a Trauma Therapist with women dealing with issues of sex and love addiction and trauma at Willow House at the Meadows.
I have been trained and certified as a sex addiction therapist by the International Institute of Trauma and Addiction Professionals. I am also trained in the Meadows Model of Developmental Immaturity and the Post Induction Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Skills, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and am currently completing my Advanced Year of Somatic Experiencing training.
I can understand how difficult and intimidating it is to seek out help. I have a passion for working with people struggling with trauma and process and substance addictions. My goal is to help people regulate their nervous system, connect with those they love, and to live a more values congruent life. I will meet you where you are at in your journey and help guide you to recovery.
