About Me

Hey there! I am Crystal Desselle, licensed clinical social worker supervisee. I have experience working with children, adolescents, and adults. I believe we are all capable of growth and healing. Sometime we just need someone to walk alongside us on our journey to help us become the best version of ourselves. I meet my clients where they are in their life and help them develop the tools to actualize their goals. Crystal Desselle, LSW, Supervisee in Clinical Social Work, is under the clinical supervision of Cynthia T. Sherman, LCSW, while obtaining supervised post-master’s degree experience per the laws and regulations governing the practice of Social Work.


I worked with a 10 year old client experiencing attention difficulties and issues with his conduct following his parent's separation. His grades were declining and he was receiving multiple suspensions for fighting in school. We worked together to strengthen his organizational and executive functioning along with connecting his thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to better express himself. Within months his grades were better and he had a decrease in school suspensions.

I want to get to know you not just your problems. Expect to be listened to, validated, empowered, and respectfully challenged. We will explore perspectives and do the work to meet your goals.

The first session will typically include topics that allow me to get to know you and your reasons for coming to therapy. The first session will also help the client identify if I am a good therapeutic fit. After all therapy is not one size fits all :)

My clients motivate me to continue my profession in therapy. It is an honor to help my clients on their journey and be a positive unbiased support in their lives.


    What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

    After sessions clients can expect to have the clarity and confidence to solve identified problems, control their behaviors, and handle distress without significant emotional disturbances.

    What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

    I utilize evidence based modalities including Play Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness, Trauma Informed, Acceptance and Committment and Psychotherapy. All treatment goals will be specific to each of my clients needs. 

    Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

    My biggest strength is my ability to create a safe space for clients to be and express themselves. As a therapist one of the most important tools I bring into session is myself. For that reason I strive to always be authentic and provide evidence-based services.
