Kaci Crook, MA

Mental Health Counselor Intern

     It's okay to not be okay. Sometimes, we all need somebody to lean on and help us understand the problems we are facing. I provide a nonjudgemental, safe space for clients to explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors through a compassionate and curious style.  I recognize that coming to therapy and being vulnerable can be challenging and, at times, scary to do. Finding a therapist who is the right match for you is important! We have to be able to feel comfortable in the therapeutic relationship in order to foster a sense of trust and vulnerability that are necessary to make real changes and promote healing. 
     In my therapeutic work, I take an eclectic approach - relying heavily on Narrative Therapy and a person-centered approach to allow my clients the chance to share their stories and find their own voice. I also incorporate elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to help clients manage symptoms and live their lives to the fullest extent possible. 

     I have experience working with clients with a variety of concerns, such as addiction, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders, self-esteem concerns, self-harming behaviors, trauma, PTSD, personality disorders, and more. I see teens, adults, and couples.
