Connie Crossley, LMFT

My choice to have a career in mental health and substance abuse comes from a deep desire to see families be able to enjoy each other. I am honored to walk with individuals and families on their journeys to healing and wellness. I believe the family unit is a powerful tool that is often not used on the journey to getting well. I enjoy working with the entire family as well as children, adolescents, and young adults who have experienced trauma or generally have trouble coping with day-to-day life and activities.

In reflection of my own supervision several years ago, I am reminded of a time in my own professional and personal development that is unmatched. The opportunity to provide supervision for those young in the profession is what allows the profession as a whole to continue to grow. I am honored to walk alongside those who have strong desires to uphold our profession's code of ethics and believe in providing appropriate clinical care.

My hope for new professionals is that they develop ethics that create the highest standard in the profession, that they have opportunity to grow personally during their journeys, and that they help individuals and families develop personal senses of wellness—mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

WORDS I LIVE BY:

"Life is about trusting your feelings, taking chances, finding happiness, learning from the past, and realizing everything changes."
