Crysta Dunkerly, MSW, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Kingsport
The change process doesn't have to be complicated. When you are so caught up in your emotion you may not be able to see the bigger picture. You remember those "dot to dot" puzzles you used to do when you were a child right? Where you started at 1 then had to find 2 and connected the line chronologically until you could tell what the picture was supposed to be. I can understand your pain. In therapy I will help you connect the dots, so that you can learn to manage your difficulties and transform your life.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and I believe in focusing on the whole system that surrounds an issue. I have a toolbox full of an eclectic assortment of interventions such as CBT, DBT, 12-step, Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, Behavioral Activation, Relationship counseling and much more.
To ensure a comfortable environment for growth, which is my top priority, I offer several online counseling options including messaging and video platforms, as well as evening and weekend hours.
