Hi! My name is Crystal Sarbuland. I am a licensed Marriage and Family therapist who is experienced in multi/dual cultural challenges, life transitions, faith counseling, anxiety, and relationship difficulties.
I help you explore your thinking patterns in order to identify, challenge, and reframe them in order to improve and/or challenge your view of yourself, the world around you, and others. I often use a multi-modal approach in order to use every tool available that has the potential to benefit my clients.
I often work with women and men who have challenges with anxiety, challenges in their culture, faith, and interpersonal relationships. I also work with individuals struggling with life transitions, low self-esteem, and difficulty with emotional identification and expression as well as tools for conflict resolution.
My communication style
I aim to provide a safe, nurturing, and supportive environment for each of my clients. I take a down-to-earth approach in order for my clients to feel understood, heard, and seen.
My journey to mental healthcare
I choose to become a therapist after seeing the need for therapists who are culturally informed, and passionate about identifying an individual client's needs and providing a safe environment for this to happen. I love my work and genuinely enjoy walking with each of my clients as they embark on their journey of healing, self-discovery, and restoration.
My goals for you
I begin my first sessions by exploring and helping my clients identify their top 2 or 3 goals for therapy. I often ask: "How will we know therapy is over?" and then create realistic, measurable goals that we monitor throughout the course of therapy.
My first session with you
Sharing who they are, what they enjoy, learning about therapy, what sessions will look like, and exploring their options for the focus of their therapy sessions.
