More about me

Licensing: LCSW

Welcome to Better Help! You've taken a huge step, and you may feel nervous about trying online therapy. I believe you will soon discover online therapy is a wonderful tool to help you overcome difficulties in your daily life - all from the comfort of your home!

My name is Cristal Jenkins, and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Virginia. I earned my Master of Social Work degree from the University of Washington in 2012. I am pursuing a doctorate degree in Community Care and Counseling: Traumatology at Liberty University with anticipated graduation in 2020. I've worked in many different settings with individuals and families and have experience addressing a variety of personal issues, including depression, anxiety, family and parenting problems, trauma/abuse, stress, intimate relationships, vocational assistance, and addictions. In my experience within various therapy settings, one thing has been apparent: people are incredibly resilient and can grow through challenging experiences with the help of a genuinely caring person. I would love to be that caring person for you and offer support or a perspective to help you become more self-aware and overcome difficult challenges. I believe it's very important to be open-minded and non-judgmental when someone shares their personal story or experiences with me and will always view my clients from a strengths perspective to help them feel empowered.

You are welcome to message me anytime through Better Help. The frequency with which you can have access to a counselor to work through the day to day emotions and problem-solving is incredibly helpful and supportive, as opposed to traditional therapy where you only speak to your counselor once a week. I usually check messages twice each day, seven days per week. I offer messaging and live chat sessions only at this time. . Please note that what you see in my calendar may not reflect my only availability so you always want to check that out with me through messaging first.

I look forward to working with 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 $35 to $80 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.
