Kelly Crabb, LMSW

Kelly is a Licensed Masters Social Worker, who graduated from Baylor University School of Social Work in Waco, Texas. Kelly has a passion for walking with clients through the valleys and hardships of life. Specialties include depression, anxiety, behavioral issues, and perinatal mood disorders. Other areas of specialty include communication, boundaries, mood disorders, conflict resolution, relationship issues, marriage counseling, blended families, stress management, and grief counseling.

My story has given me a passion to walk alongside others through both the mountaintops of life and its darkest moments. I desire to help others examine their own story and to help them find their place in this world. We all feel lost and broken at times, and each chapter of our lives influences who we are and how we view the world. My goal is to help clients examine these chapters and walk with them in their brokenness as they learn to view themselves in the bigger picture of their story.

When I am not working with clients I enjoy exploring new places, painting & poetry, playing guitar, good books and journaling, as well as drinking Bigby coffee. One of my favorite things to do is to go on adventures with my husband, three kids, and two dogs.

My Approach

I approach counseling from a strengths perspective, recognizing each person has different positive attributes and strengths and has the ability to be resilient in the face of adversity. I recognize each chapter of life we find ourselves in may have different needs and may need different techniques and approaches. I utilize a variety of theories in my work including cognitive behavioral theory, dialectical behavior therapy narrative theory, solution-focused theory, and motivational interviewing, recognizing that what may be effective for one client on their journey may not be effective for another. We will focus on building a strong rapport in the beginning sessions. As we continue, we will focus on implementing techniques and theories that are specific to your goals, needs, and areas of healing. Finally, together we focus on empowering you to live out your story, empowering you with tools and hope to carry out the next chapter of your life.

What You Can Expect

My goal is to create a safe environment together, where we can dig deeper into the pages of your story and provide a safe place where your story can be heard, and healing can take place. Each story is unique and sacred and will be treated with the dignity and respect it deserves.
