She’s understanding,kind and genuinely cares which is so hard to find these days! She helped me work through some major traumas from the past, I would highly recommend this office.
Dr. Crosby's extraordinary professionalism and experience helped me recover from an incapacitating personal event. Her care is always both insightful and compassionate. She helped me find my way back to the light and life. I highly recommend Dr. Crosby.
Dr. Crosby helped me through a tough time of life transition. I looked forward to going each week because I felt supported and that I was moving forward. Very appreciative to have found a therapist that with great experience and affordable.
I like coming here because I can tell that they really care about helping me and not just going through the motions.
M primary goal is to provide you with symptomatic relief and improvement in functioning and well-being. I believe that people have the ability to improve their circumstances, symptoms, feelings, and/or thoughts even when that seems impossible. I will work closely with you while we help to move you to a more positive and functional situation. The first step in therapy is for me to learn all about you and what has brought you to a point in your life where you are seeking help. I will ask you to tell me all about yourself, your life, and your current situation. I will work hard to listen for patterns and make connections between your past and your current situation. Through this process I will be able to develop a comprehensive treatment plan and have a good understanding of what therapeutic modality would work best for you. We will work together from that point forward collaboratively and establish a strong and mutually trusting therapeutic relationship. The most important part of the experience will be to instill and foster hope and to make sure that you feel supported. You are not alone.
I received a BA with a major in psychology and biology and a minor in mathematics and women's studies from the University of South Florida. I have an MA and Psy.D. in clinical psychology from the Florida School of Professional Psychology.
I offer very affordable therapy services while practicing under a licensed Ph.D. My services cost approximately 25 to 30 percent below average. I try to make therapy as affordable as possible so that it is accessible. I charge about the same as a basic insurance copay, $60. I am an out of network provider for most insurance companies, but can provide a reimbursement form that should allow you to save 60 percent of my fee through your insurance company.
