More about me

Licensing: Ph.D
Years in Practice: 9
State: MD

I am a clinical psychologist licensed to practice in Washington, DC and in Maryland. Although I was born and raised in California, my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees - M.Ed and Ph.D. - alma maters are from universities in Virginia. You can ask me why I moved from California to Virginia, and hopefully I will have constructed a truthful answer that is as intriguing as a George RR Martin novel.

Similar to my training, my therapeutic approach is multi-faceted, as I have several areas of expertise within clinical psychology. I've spent considerable time working with children and adolescents (spanning all ranges of development) on emotional and behavioral concerns at home and at school. From this, I developed a passion for working with families and understanding family conflict, whether I was working with one or more partners in a parenting relationship (bio, step or multigenerational) and/or romantic relationship. The increase of mental health awareness has led more young-to-middle aged adults to seek therapy with me, looking for help to cope with recent diagnoses or long-standing struggles with anxiety, depression, self-confidence, life transitions, job satisfaction, identity exploration and general guidance toward life satisfaction.

Wherever I practice, my clients are my guests. I am welcoming you into a safe space, a second home. As my guest, you will have a comforting environment where you can share your most vulnerable moments openly and without judgment. Together, we will identify and address your deepest concerns. You can expect that, throughout the process, we will share our respective reflections, expertise and experiences on the way to healing, clarity and empowerment. My mission is to show you - my guest - how achievable the healing process can be. I look forward to meeting you!

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Dr. Crumpton is excellent!! He is really good at what he does and you can tell that he is really dedicated to helping his clients. He has been very accommodating of time differences and my work schedule, often giving up his evenings to squeeze in a session with me. Would totally recommend him!

I have no prior experience of counseling at all, and I have been very impressed. I found Dr. Crumpton extremely kind, caring and professional. He got to the root of my problem very quickly and offered really helpful advice. I feel so much better after talking to him and I would recommend this service to my close friends and family.
