Meet the Therapists
Krystin Sankey, MS, LPC
When you experience stressful or traumatic life events, overwhelming emotions can take over and cause you to lose hope. You may feel worried, depressed, or anxious and notice you aren't as productive at work, school, or home. Your life feels like it has been turned upside down and you wonder if things will ever feel normal again. As a parent, you may feel guilt or shame for not being able to protect or help your child(ren). You may notice a change in behaviors that cause concern. You are not alone!
I believe that connection is a basic human need. When connections are strained or limited in our daily lives, we may feel alone and hopeless. I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship to help individuals build confidence and hope within their lives. I bring my whole heart and my whole self into your hour without judgment.
I graduated from Indiana University-Bloomington with a Master of Science degree in Counseling Psychology and from Central Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, minoring in Family Life Studies. I have worked with children, adolescents, families, and adults for 15 years. Professional settings include a residential treatment center, Children’s Advocacy Center, youth shelter, and private practice.
I live in Grand Blanc with my Husband, our three boys, one dog, and one cat. I love traveling, the beach, and sunshine. I look forward to holidays and spending time with those I love. I am not much of a risk taker but someday hope to cross sky diving off my bucket list. I enjoy reading, baking, listening to live music, and watching a good romcom in my free time.

If you are looking for a safe and therapeutic environment to begin working on yourself, I am ready and willing to walk that road with you. Let's work together to create a space to begin focusing on your intentions, to begin healing from past wounds and trauma, and to work toward building hope for your future. I will assist you as you work toward your goals through traditional talk therapy and mindfulness techniques such as deep breathing and grounding exercises. I enjoy working with adolescents and adults. I want to help you feel empowered.
My therapy approach incorporates cultural sensitivity and trauma-informed care. I utilize techniques from cognitive-behavioral therapy and will always come from a strength-based approach to help you get the most out of your sessions. You're not meant to do this alone. Let me help you feel like yourself again. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me to see how I can help.
I graduated with my Bachelors in Human Services in 2012, and I graduated with my Masters of Arts in Clinical Counseling from the University of Detroit Mercy in 2016. I have over 12 years experience working in various settings including community mental health agencies, high/at-risk youth center, children's advocacy center, and private practice.
