Falling Out of Romantic Love

by Crystal Wilhite Hemesath

"My goal is to guide and educate individuals toward having the most successful and healthy romantic relationship possible, as well as to provide up-to-date information and strategies for relationship professionals."

MY APPROACH

The therapeutic models I work from are Solution-Focused, Brief Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Theory, Cognitive-Behavioral, Narrative, and Family Systems Theory. My treatment approach is determined by the presenting problem and the best fit for the client.  

I also believe my clients have the strength and resources to resolve their problems and are temporarily “stuck” when they decide to enter treatment. Although I believe it is best for clients to come to their own conclusions about what is right for them, I consider myself an active therapist who gives feedback.  I work closely with my clients in creating goals and setting up a plan of action, which assists the client in achieving these goals. I also believe that therapy does not have to be long-term to be productive. I utilize psychoeducation to assist my clients in gaining skills that will help them realize their full potential currently and in the future.  

I value the importance of communication and collaboration with physicians or other helping professionals involved in my client's care as I believe a team approach is best. As such, I am happy to refer to other professionals who may be of benefit to my client's improved well-being. Overall, I provide a straightforward approach to treatment with guidance and practical solutions.
