About Russell Crawford, PhD, LPC, NCC, ACS

Founder of Sunrise Counseling &

Owner of Tar, Our Therapy Horse 

                                                                                       
There is nothing is worse than feeling out of control. Whether you are having trouble with a specific situation, or if your life has been taken over by anxiety, panic, depression, intrusive thoughts or actions - there is hope.  I understand your fear and frustrations because I have the unique experience of having been there myself.
 
About 20 years ago my life changed suddenly and found myself in a constant state of anxiety. I have since overcome these obstacles and can help you overcome yours. If you find yourself having intrusive thoughts, feeling as though you can't get out of bed, or constantly worrying about a someone you love hurting themselves. I encourage you to call us. 
 
I offer insight into the conscious and unconscious motivations behind our behaviors and identify areas in which we can improve our coping skills, understanding, and our quality of life. There are solutions to problems, and we can work together to win back that control over your life that is missing. I can assure you I will not judge your past, present, or future. We all are unique and have had our own experiences that shape us. I have a great amount of empathy and have a easy going personality. I am willing to listen to what is important to you.
