"Christa changed the way I thought of therapy. Instead of telling me that my choices were healthy or problematic, she helped me tune in to my values and make my own decisions. I made a lot of progress in about 4 months of work. She gave consistent homework and was always emailing me resources. I used to not like therapy because it felt like examining what was wrong with me and she helps me see what I'm doing right and how I can 'tap into my needs to make the right decision'."
"Christa is a remarkable therapist! She is incredibly committed to learning a wide range of modalities and skills to better serve clients, and her warm and disarming presence makes it easy to explore anything together. Highly recommended!"
"I feel comfortable talking to her. Safe space, non-religious, Non-judgmental. Positive and upbeat attitude. Takes the time to listen and offer advice. She's comfortable and thoughtful. She listens well and aims to help me with my goals. She was totally open and helped validate myself and my needs. Very nice and accepting and awesome in every way. She was very kind and helpful with literally everything; really awesome person."
"Christa McCrorie is kind, compassionate, intelligent, and strong and operates with a clear sense of direction and purpose. Her knowledge, and experience in working with a diverse population enhances her ability to provide quality care to her clients."
" Wonderful insight, action items, guidance, and transparency... True active listening, guides the conversation without taking it over, is able to ask the right questions to get me to look at things from a different perspective. Also incredibly inclusive!...My experience with Christa has been excellent so far. I've struggled in the past to find therapists who I not only click with on an interpersonal level but who are able to effectively guide me to get to the root of problems and what the solutions might be. Christa is kind, transparent, and easy to talk to. I'm already making more progress here than I did with working with other therapists for years. I highly recommend Creative Therapeutic Solutions for anyone struggling with mental illness, who are wanting to explore their queer identity, or just need to talk to someone."
"I thought that professor McCrorie did a really great job teaching us... I appreciate so much the energy and excitement that she brought to class. I also appreciate the thoughtfulness that she approached our concerns and fears with and how she joined with us... I am so very thankful for the effort that she put into helping our class explore... she has a lot of energetic personality... She is a very approachable individual that very clearly cares and is excited about and for the next generation of social workers, and that should be celebrated."
"I was astonished by Christa’s ability to know exactly how to support me and help move forward my process toward launching my private practice. I would highly recommend her services to anyone no matter where one finds themselves in the business launching process."
"Christa was instrumental in assisting me to start a private practice. The consultation she provided was professional, friendly, and helpful! Worth every minute and dollar."
