Welcome to my practice! I am Krystal Klein and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor in the state of Texas. I’m a Certified Dialectical Behavior Therapist (C-DBT) and I am also currently working towards becoming the first Certified LGBTQIA+ Affirmative Therapist in the Rio Grande Valley. Although I will mention my work with the LGBT community most frequently, I also provide services to cis-gendered, heterosexual individuals.
THE ASCENDING TREATMENT FOCUS
The positive connection between therapist and client is especially important within the LGBTQIA+ community where you already experience microaggressions, discrimination, hate speech, and societies battles.
This makes finding a knowledgeable, safe, and culturally aware therapist that much more important. I am here to assist you through the journey of finding your true self.
THE ASCENDING WELLNESS MISSION
My mission is to assist you, as my client, in finding yourself, your worth, and your happiness through combinations of techniques that fit your individual needs. Your therapy success is in many ways shaped by the therapeutic alliance that is formed between you and your therapist. As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community I have a firsthand understanding of the long history of discrimination, health disparities, and “corrective” treatments that have historically made therapy dangerous for us. Finding the right therapist is no small feat. You deserve someone who “gets” you, who is well-trained, effective and provides you with a safe space, free of judgement. This can be crucial to the therapeutic process.
