About Crystal Robinson

I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Supervisor in North Carolina specializing in children, adolescents, and young adults with a focus on BIPOC. My expertise in mental health focuses on depression, anxiety, and childhood trauma (6-18). I am a solo clinician in private practice offering telehealth services only at this time. I am also a registered telehealth therapist in Florida.

My goal is to ensure that I create a nonjudgmental, safe and welcoming space for you to share freely. I utilize an eclectic approach that will address your unique needs. We will work together to identify and change your emotions, behavior and thought patterns that are no longer providing your desired results.

I also provide clinical supervision to LCMHCA's in North Carolina.

That definitely sounds scary and I'm sorry you had to experience that. I'm not familiar with your boyfriend or his history however I will say that when others get angry to the point they want to hurt/hit themselves most likely they haven't learned healthy ways of expressing their anger and they cope... more

I would suggest being kind and gentle with yourself. A lot of times we tend to try to live up to others expectations or what they feel you should do. I encourage you to give yourself grace and know that we were all created differently and unique in our own way. The world would be a boring place if... more

I'm sorry you are experiencing bullying. Bullies are often those who are not happy with themselves or hurting inside and want others to hurt as well. By all means I'm not saying that it's okay to bully or to be bullied. I would suggest getting a parent or guardian involved to help advocate for you... more

You have my condolences. I would suggest your local Hospice as they offer free counseling services. If you come across someone that you feel may be able to help you process the grief, inquire about pro bono services or sliding scale.

Having multiple things/issues to address in therapy is very common. I would suggest taking on one issue at a time to get the most out of it versus rushing to address everything all at once. It's okay to give yourself some grace and take it one step at a time.

It is perfectly normal to cry in therapy. Therapy is a safe place to be you and to be vulnerable. Sometimes the best release is crying versus suppressing those emotions.

When you're questioning whether or not you should end the relationship lets me know that the relationship is no longer serving its purpose to you. I would suggest being honest with yourself and identifying the pros and cons of the relationship and doing what is best for you. Sometimes people don't... more

I would suggest that your daughter speak with a counselor as stress is something that all kids/teens go through in school. A lot of times it's very hard to manage and talking to friends or family may not always feel like the best approach for them due to not wanting to be a burden. I use the analogy... more

I encourage potential clients to interview therapists before making a final decision to work with me. I suggest that clients have an idea of what brings them to therapy, what they would like to benefit from therapy and what their current needs are. Based on that, when speaking with a potential... more
