"An Overview of Eating Disorders and Ethical Care for Clinicians" by Susan Zelenak RD and Crystal St. John MFT
Crystal St. John works is currently the Program Director for Center for Discovery's Outpatient Eating Disorder program in Temecula as well as works part time in private practice. Crystal has worked with individual, couples, teen, family, and women's issues for the past decade and has had specific experience in therapy work with healing of relational issues, anxiety, depression, body image issues, eating disorders, exercise addictions and aversions, trauma and women's issues including family transitions and planning as well as perinatal care and maternal wellness, trauma and PTSD.
In her work, Crystal incorporates evidence-based treatment modalities that include dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT) and Restoration Therapy through the lens of a strengths-based approach and EMDR. Crystal is also a licensed Body Positive facilitator and holds multiple certifications in personal training and active group wellness where she incorporates body kindness and positivity into her clinical work with those struggling with body image, exercise addiction and/or motivation, life transitions and other issues.
Crystal has a sincere compassion and understanding that it's not easy trusting (a therapist) to walk with you in the most vulnerable areas of one's lives. It takes not only courage but also trust and she values that space. To support healing and outcomes of change she believes therapy to work in collaboration with her clients to support their specific needs and to offer hope and growth. Her style and approach is holistic and she values ones own individual story(s) and experience(s).
