Ashland Center for Couples provides counseling and therapy for couples, individuals and families. Serving the greater Ashland, Talent, Phoenix and Medford, Oregon communities with marriage counseling and couples therapy services.
Maintaining intimate relationships is not always easy and couples are faced with many difficult challenges. Couples therapy creates the space for building communication, fostering connections, bridging differences and working through breaches of trust.
There are times when people need support to move through life's challenges. From getting "unstuck" and conquering depression and anxiety, to managing life's stresses and processing grief. Therapy is tailored to the individual.
Families face many difficult challenges. Whether it’s children growing into teens, disruptive behaviors or life changes in the family, a therapeutic approach provides families with the foundation to make positive relationship changes, resolve conflicts and help discover strengths.
Ashland Center for Couples, LLC
As a psychotherapist, people enter my office looking to improve their lives and relationships. Some are in crisis while others may simply need a trusted ear. Whatever the case, my goal is to provide a nonjudgmental sanctuary where clients are able to share their story and achieve their personal goals.
I strive to ignite and mobilize my client’s unique strengths and help them to access their own innate resiliency. I look to instill confidence in their capabilities to positively impact and influence their own lives. People have an incredible capacity to change and therapy can be an instrumental tool in helping people move towards better mental health. My passion is to help people create positive change in their lives so that they are able to live fully and authentically.
Lao Tzu, a Chinese philosopher wrote, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” That first step can indeed be the most difficult and likely the journey will not be easy, but together we can face the challenge and help you to achieve the relief, comfort and quality of life you deserve. Every client is a gift that motivates me to continue to learn and grow in the career that I love. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you and welcome you to the Ashland Center for Couples.
In My Client's Words...
"My husband and I had been together a long time before we sought counseling for how stuck we were. Counseling helped us realize that this (being stuck) is normal and part of the journey of being married long term. It helped us see things in our routines and roles that were keeping us stuck. We were both very reluctant to start counseling, but it has changed our lives more than we could have ever expected, we are now moving forward as individuals and a couple. We are so thankful we went."
"Thank you for all of your listening and advice, you have really made a difference in my life."
"I appreciate all the help you’ve given me. You are non-judgmental and caring, you truly see the good in people. You have made a positive impact on me."
"Thank you for helping me learn to believe again. Having you for my therapist certainly is a gift from above."
"I’ve been in therapy many times before and for the first time, with your help, I really feel like I am finally working on myself."
"A little over two years ago I was hopeless, I had no envision of a future for myself, and the pain of my childhood was too much to bear. My thoughts and life were consumed with depression and I was blind to everything around me. Then you came into my life. You have helped me in more ways than I could have ever imagined, and I have grown so much since I have known you. Chrysta, thank you so much for everything you have done."
"I am not sure that words can properly express how thankful I am that I met you. You helped me through one of the most difficult periods in my life and I am grateful. You are a wonderful listener, provide excellent advice and have this aura of calm that I could only aspire to."
