HI, I'M CRYSTAL!

About

When you make the decision to heal you open the door to living the life you imagine.

Licensed Therapist + Childhood Trauma Expert

 

THE FORMAL:

Crystal is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and owner of Compass Life Skills & Counseling, a trauma-focused practice in North Carolina. Her therapy experience spans over a decade, from serving youth in juvenile detention centers to providing corporate emotional training and hosting life-changing adult retreats. Crystal is a proud wife of her husband, Donald, and a loving mom to two little ones, Andrew & Alaina. 

THE INFORMAL:

I was born in a group home in Charlotte NC, to parents who were 13 and 14 years old. Just babies themselves, they lacked emotional, mental, and financial stability. Childhood trauma followed me into adulthood, where I struggled to find my identity, and tried to earn love by pleasing people, rescuing others, and minimizing myself.

I've been where you are. The feelings of abandonment; parents and caretakers choosing people and things over you; lack of self-worth; being a people-pleaser. I've been there. 

My struggles fueled my passion for creating safe spaces for people to heal from the childhood trauma that had me shackled for many years. I began my therapy career with one goal: to help people of all ages and backgrounds find true healing.

Healing from the trauma has opened up opportunities I could never imagine.

Now, I want that same feeling and reality for you. Let's go to work!

Ready to break the cycles of dysfunction in your family?

Keeping yourself emotionally safe in a family that thrives on dysfunction is absolutely possible!

what are
Safe Spaces?

I create safe spaces for individuals to heal from childhood trauma. I provide unwavering support, direction and techniques as you heal from unhealthy relationships with parents, abuse, poverty and neglect. Clients have freed themselves from self-sabatoge, minimizing and people pleasing. They have found their voice, created boundaries without feeling guilty and live a life of authenticity, freedom and purpose.
