About Me

Greetings! My name is Crystal Bush, LCSW LCAS LISW-CP, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with you on your path towards change. I believe you are the expert on your own life, and the role of the the therapist is to help you more clearly identify and develop the strengths and skills you already have. Ours will be a therapeutic relationship with treatment provided from the comprehensive bio/psycho/social/spiritual perspective, meaning we will explore the science, the mind, the environmental, and to your level of interest, the spiritual basis and resolution to your concerns. Clients seeking Friday, Saturday, and Sunday appointments will be the best fit for treatment with me as my weekday availability is highly limited.

I have over 15 years of clinical experience with licenses in Clinical Social Work and Addictions in North Carolina, and a license in Clinical Social Work in South Carolina. I received my early training and education through a Bachelor of Social Work from North Carolina State University and an Master of Social Work from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I have extensive experience in therapy for patients of varying ages in a wide variety of settings, including through use of telehealth. I'm prepared to be in your corner. Let's get to work!

Crystal is knowledgeable, disarming, and easy to talk to. From the very first session, we felt comfortable sharing with her. Her communication style is flexible with whatever works best for you. Within a short amount of time, she helped my partner and I start working together as a team again instead of against each other and we actually look forward to our sessions. Highly recommend.

We have had a couple of sessions with Crystal so far and she has been very insightful and helpful with our problems. She was quick to identify our main problem and provided immediate solutions. We will most definitely be continuing our sessions with her.
