Crystle Lampitt, LSCSW is a licensed therapist, speaker, and trauma specialist. Her passion is helping others who feel stuck in “survival mode” to find a greater sense of alignment and self-trust. After years of her own self-sabotage, burnout, and dysfunctional relationships, Crystle was diagnosed with multiple autoimmune illnesses, which forced her to stop, refocus, and change. She left her career as a TV journalist to go back to school to become a therapist, and in the process, to confront the trauma that was keeping her sad, sick, and stuck. Now, Crystle's mission is to spread hope and to encourage others to never give up on themselves, even when prospects seem bleak. Using a somatic, relational, and neuroscience-informed approach, Crystle supports others in finding peace, healing trauma, and creating the life they want.
