Teletherapy (Remote) Providers
Remote Site Coordinator
My favorite part about being a therapist is helping others gain insight that will lead them to the change they want to see in their lives. In my 6 years of counseling experience, I have learned that the most beneficial and impactful part of therapy is the relationship between the therapist and the client. As a result, I use our rapport to develop a connection and provide a strength-based approach to therapy.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT #92514) and California State University Long Beach. I utilize an integrative approach, including evidenced-based treatments and other theories, to implement a unique and individual approach for each client. Some of these include Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Functional Family Therapy as well as Motivational Interviewing techniques to customize therapy specifically for you. Also, I have experience working with adolescents, individuals, families and couples. Whether your current trouble spots are individual or relational, anxiety or depression, life transitions or just feeling stuck, I know that we can work together to help you reach your goals.
I hope to show that therapy does not need to be painful, but can be an enriching time to learn about yourself. It can be difficult to talk to a stranger and ask for help during this difficult time in your life. I hope to have the opportunity to work with you and in learning more about what makes you…you.

Therapy is an important part of every person’s physical and mental well-being. It is important to hold a safe, non-judgemental and healing space for every person. My approach to working with individuals is client centered, and goal driven to develop a strong therapeutic relationship. I offer tailored treatment to each individual to meet their needs. My approach to therapy is Trauma Informed Care and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I utilize many coping skills and evidence based interventions, including mindfulness, grounding, journaling, and other techniques that are unique to each individual. I currently work with adults 18 years and older who may be experiencing trauma (past or current), PTSD, depression, anxiety and any other behavioral issues.
I received a BA in Psychology at California State University, Fresno and obtained my Masters in Social Work at the University of Southern California. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW #95199), I have worked over 5 years in community services, focusing predominantly on adults experiencing homelessness and reintegrating them back into the community. I have experience working with human trafficked survivors, substance abuse disorders, serious mental illness, medical complications, the LGBTQIA community, and clinical case management.
Prior to obtaining my masters degree in social work, I was a paramedic for 6 years and a firefighter for 4 years. I am familiar with the challenges of what first responders face and I would be happy to be a part of your healing journey if this field has affected you in any way.
I am looking forward to working with you in your therapeutic journey. Please feel free to call me or email me.

Crystal Shields, LMFT, LPCC, Health & Life Coach
Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me before I learn about you!
Personally – I became a therapist because I received great therapy myself. Growing through my own struggles has been a beautiful development that I am forever thankful for. For me, it is difficult to imagine having a job or a life that does not align with my heart’s personal and professional values. Accordingly, I have made it my life’s mission to join others in overcoming their lives’ challenges so they, too, may achieve healthier, happier and more successful lives.
Professionally – I am an LMFT, LPCC, certified health coach and certified life coach. My education includes double Bachelor’s degrees in Health Sciences along with double Master’s degrees in Marriage and Family Therapy and in Professional Clinical Counseling. I prioritize ongoing learning so I may be of the best assistance possible, and I am committed to helping my clients improve their lives in the ways they wish to do so.
My typical areas of practice include: relationship/marital issues, codependency, grief/loss, anxiety, depression, burnout, life transitions, and coping with other changes such as those related to the circumstances of COVID-19. If you would like extra support right now, you are nowhere near alone. Getting “stuck” is normal, and everyone is capable of improving so long as they courageously and consistently put forth effort to do so. You are taking a big step by seeking help – congratulations! Having a professional teammate will almost certainly speed up your progress.
My style is non-judgmental, empathetic and supportive. It is always my first priority to help you feel comfortable with fully expressing yourself because that is essential for us to have a high-quality therapeutic relationship and for the most therapeutic progress to occur. You are the expert of your life, and I will do my best to understand it before doing anything else. Therefore, I will meet you right where you are in your unique experience. Subsequently, I will gladly help you gain new insight into how your past experiences have contributed to your current patterns of functioning. We will solidify your objectives, assess your options, identify and use your strengths, plus learn and implement new skills that will help you evolve in alignment with your aspirations. Together, we will act as a team that supports your movement along the path toward achieving your goals. We will evaluate your progress regularly and I will obtain your feedback so I can adjust my approach in order to best meet both your needs and preferences. With me, therapy is all about you and what works best for you! It would be my pleasure and honor to be a collaborative part of your personal growth process.
At this time, I am accepting referrals for individual adults and couples. I would love to have the privilege of learning about you and your life including your current challenges and goals. If for any reason it does not seem we are a good fit for each other, I will happily refer you to another professional who I think would best meet your present needs.
Additionally, if you are curious to know a little about my personal life – my hobbies and interests include: spiritual development, American and global politics, advocating for the advancements of those who are close to me as well as for the preservation of constitutional freedoms, clinical and creative writing, interior decorating, hosting guests and visitors, admiring art and nature, plus talking on the phone. Surprisingly, when I am not talking to clients I am often on the phone because I love people so much!
