Cristy Thornell, LPC, Ph.D.


As a bilingual licensed professional counselor, I believe in helping others communicate effectively regardless of their cultural and/or linguistic backgrounds. I was born and raised in Mexico and have been trained, as a counselor, in both English and Spanish. My clinical training was done across the age span of working with kids, teenagers, and adults at homeless shelters, transitional living programs, and at inpatient and outpatient recovery programs. It is my daily motto that “happiness is not the belief that we don’t need to change; it is the realization that we can.” – Shawn Achor
