Licensed Social Worker
“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” – Dr. Maya Angelou.
A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Krystin is a Clinical Social Worker in the Cleveland, Ohio area. Krystin has a heart and an ear for serving the underserved in the community with a specific focus on women and children.
Krystin is a two-time graduate of The Ohio State University (Columbus, Ohio) where she earned a Bachelor of the Arts in African and African American Studies in 2009, followed by Master of Social Work concentrated in Mental Health and Substance Abuse in 2016. Krystin has extensive personal experience in the area of work-life balance and stress management as she completed both degrees while working full-time and raising a family; Krystin now uses that personal experience to encourage and coach women of all ages to push through adversity, pursue their passion, and live on purpose.
Krystin’s professional experiences include: psychiatric emergency services, crisis management and de-escalation, assessments and recommendation for mental health treatment, support groups, linkage to services within the shelter system, permanent supportive housing for women with dual diagnoses, and case management.
Krystin now looks to move into a more therapeutic setting by counseling individuals struggling to establish and/or maintain mental health and wellness, those trying to manage depression, anxiety, crisis, and trauma, and families seeking balance within their unit. Although Strength – Based Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) are the primary treatment approaches, Krystin is always open to learning and exploring new treatment approaches that best fit the needs of the client. Krystin looks forward to serving clients and creating a judgement-free, positive, professional environment at RISE Counseling Group under the Supervision of De’Asia L. Thompson, LISW-S.
