Crystal Pasciak earned her Master’s Degree in Mental Health Counseling from Walden University. After graduation she completed over 4,000 hours of supervised work experience at a clinic with a partial hospitalization program, frequently working with clients ranging from severe mental disorders to severe depression/suicide attempts, to individuals with behavior problems or adjustment difficulties. She has worked with individuals, couples, families, therapy groups and support groups. Ages of clients range from 3 on up to 70.
Crystal has come to realize that one therapy approach does not fit all. Therefore, she uses a multi-system approach with emphasis on cognitive behavioral techniques (CBT) and reality therapy (RT). She has knowledge of and uses other approaches—such as existential, feminism, solution-focused, motivational interviewing, psychotherapy, and person centered methods—as well based on the needs of the individual client in order to achieve rapid results.
Her area of interest is victims of domestic violence. Crystal works with clients to help them distinguish the different forms of domestic violence and unhealthy relationships, as well as helping them to develop safety plans and identify resources.
She has experience in the following areas: depression, bi-polar disorder, anxiety, parenting issues, autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, grief & loss, stress, self-harming behaviors, life-transitions, blended families, separation & divorce issues, schizophrenia, obsessive compulsive disorder, and gender identity issues.
Crystal is a Nationally Certified Counselor, a member of the American Counseling Association, the Michigan Counseling Association, and Chi Sigma Iota, which is an international honor society for counseling professionals.
