Crystal joined YFC in June 2024. She graduated from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology with a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology. Crystal previously worked at Catholic Charities where early in her career she discovered her passion for walking alongside others who are seeking guidance and support. Crystal has extensive experience working with victims and perpetrators of community violence by providing counseling services to children, adolescents and adults utilizing a trauma informed lens. Crystal provides therapy services in both English and Spanish and incorporates trauma informed approaches as well as DBT into her work with clients.

Through her experience working for a behavioral health center within the same community in which she grew up, Crystal gained an understanding and appreciation of the value of having accessible providers in your community that you can turn to in times of need. For this reason, Crystal is committed to giving back to the community that she calls home.

In her free time, Crystal enjoys being active and spending time in nature by going on walks and watching wildlife, especially (her favorite) ducks.
