Free 30 Minute Consultation

I offer a free 30 minute consultation so you may gain a sense of who I am and how I work. During this time you and I will decide if we are a good fit for working together to achieve your goals.

Philosophy and Approach

Relationships are the foundation of our lives. How well we relate to others and ourselves significantly impacts the quality of our lives. However, many people have had painful experiences that confine their view of themselves and affect their ability to have deep and meaningful relationships. Past trauma and abuse often leave people feeling isolated, anxious, and depressed. They often feel powerless to overcome feeling unworthy or “different” from others, unable to figure out how to create and maintain long standing loving relationships.

In therapy, I provide new emotional experiences in which you can become aware of what is hindering you from gaining a fuller experience of yourself and your relationships. I utilize an approach that honors your unique experience and personality while also challenging you to gain the deepest understanding and growth possible.

Ultimately, I work with you so that you might better understand and relate to yourself as well as others in an honoring way. I believe in the resiliency of the human heart as well as the cognitive changes that can take place within a strong therapeutic relationship.

I work with couples, individuals, and families in order to help you live a more intentional and connected life.

Crystal J. Mattox, LMFT

Education & Training

My undergraduate degree is in Human Development & Family Studies. During my time at Warner Pacific College I focused on how my education impacted the person I was becoming. The integration and transformation of dichotomies into paradoxes.

I am also a graduate of George Fox University where I earned a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. Major areas of interest to me that continue to be a part of my ongoing education and training include but are not limited to: Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy, Intersubjective Systems Theory, Narrative Therapy, trauma & loss, psychology of religion, philosophy, and the arts. My commitment to learning is a part of participating in my ongoing personal growth so I may serve you to the best of my abilities.


I have a decade of experience care giving for families dealing with the aging and dying of a loved-one. I have spent the past 10 years counseling a number of individuals, couples, and families dealing with:

  • Addiction Recovery/Codependency
  • ADD/ADHD, OCD, PTSD & Anxiety
  • Emotional, Physical, & Sexual Abuse Issues
  • Sexual Issues
  • Grief & Loss
  • Identity & Purpose
  • Divorce & Remarriage
  • Sibling Therapy

I consider my beliefs an important part of how I may best serve my clients by committing myself to integrity, compassion, and being of service to others.
