Kaci Crook, MA

Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern

I have experience working with a variety of clients, and my specializations include working with behavioral or substance-related addictions, mood disorders (such as anxiety, depression, and/or bipolar disorder), trauma, and first responders. I strive to help each client set and reach personalized goals through a curious and compassionate framework. I work with individuals aged 12 and above, providing age-appropriate therapy to address unique needs and challenges. I also offer couples therapy to assist couples of all types in enhancing their communication, resolving conflicts, and strengthening their relationships.

I consider my therapeutic approach to be integrative. I use techniques from narrative therapy to help clients explore and reconstruct their personal narratives, and empower them to rewrite unhelpful stories. I am also an IFS (internal family systems) informed clinician and utilize this to help clients understand and integrate different parts of themselves.

I work to create a safe, non-judgmental space for each client to foster exploration of their thoughts, actions, and emotions. My approach is client-centered, compassionate, and collaborative. At various points in our lives, we all need somebody to lean on and help support us in our individual journeys - and I would be happy to be take that journey with you.
