Kristy Crownover, MA, LMFT

Thank you for visiting my website. I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and Relationship Coach. I have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy. Looking for help is not always easy. When things get tough, sometimes we need to create some space for ourself and actively address the issues that are limiting us. 

I specialize in:

·Relationships and creating secure attachment - Couples, Parenting, Family, and Friends

·Transitions and moving forward - Life Changes, Loss, Pregnancy, Mid-life, and Career

·Improving challenges that get in our way - Anxiety, Depression, Critical Inner-Voice, Anger Management, Addiction, Trauma Response, and Emotional Dysregulation

·Self-Reflection and personal growth - Emotional Intelligence, Self-Confidence, Productivity/Motivation, Stress Reduction, Life/Work Balance, and Reaching Short-Term and Long-Term Goals

My work with relationships is based in attachment theory and I enjoy helping families create secure attachment. Our emotional awareness in ourselves and others, gives us the information we need to communicate more effectively and become more responsive with our loved ones. I help couples learn about their negative cycle and move towards each other and emotional connection. Families can learn to understand each other's needs and behaviors that can get misunderstood during conflicts. I am passionate about helping pregnant families prepare for their birth and create a safe, responsive environment for the baby and each other. Positive parenting and nonviolent communication are tools that can help parents increase connection with their children and find creative ways to set loving boundaries that allow for everyone's needs to be met. Teenagers are in a unique time of their life and sometimes require extra support in learning to manage the feelings and expectations that come with these delicate years. Children need the adults in their life to be at their best. Understanding the age-appropriate behaviors and stages of development can help parents make better choices to support their children in their growth. 

It is in our most important relationships that we soothe old wounds and grow emotionally. Investing time in repairing these relationships is beneficial for everyone involved. Stress, anxiety and depression are difficult to manage alone. I work with clients to find relief from these difficulties. If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I would like to work with you to achieve your goals. Thank you again for stopping by.
