Bird's Eye View Counseling, PLLC​​

Crystal Griffin, MSW, LCSW

​​I am a licensed clinical social worker practicing in Asheville NC, having recently relocated from Frederick MD.   I am licensed to practice in North Carolina, Maryland and South Carolina.  My practice offerings include Health Coaching, Psychotherapy, and Parenting Education. 

​One's past does not need to dictate our future.  Our choices and the ways in which we choose to nurture ourselves are major components in living our best life - emotionally, physically, spiritualy, and occupationally.  Let's work together to reach your full potential.

Health Coaching


Being healthy is a lifestyle!
A Health Coach is a supportive mentor and wellness authority who works with clients to help them feel their best through food and lifestyle changes. Instead of prescribing one diet or way of exercising, Health Coaches tailor individualized wellness programs to meet their clients' needs.

Relationships, exercise, career, and spirituality are just as important to your health as the food you eat. Health Coaches understand this and take a holistic approach to supporting the whole person.

The Health Improvement Program is a 6 month personalized program to ensure that changes you start will become lasting change.  My role is to support, educate and help facilitate changes needed to accomplish your objectives.   Whether you have been struggling with weight, pain management, auto-immune diseases - we will explore persoanlized options that best fit your life. 

There are several options to choose from to personalize your program to best fit your unique needs.   

  • Individual Sessions - in person or skype
  • Lifestyle Analysis
  • Grocery Shopping
  • Pantry / Home Evaluation
  • Behavior Modification
  • Nutrition Education

​​As a solution-focused psychotherapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating.  While we can't change difficult situations, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life.

By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experienceing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. I will providing a highly personalized approach tailored to your individual needs and within your comfort zone to attain the personal growth you desire.   

I offer Alpha-Stim,  a cranial electrotherapy stimulation device that relieves symptoms of anxiety, depression, and insomnia quickly and safely without depending on medication.

Client Testimonials

"I have been to several therapists over many years, Crystal Griffin is one of the very best. I knew from the first visit that I was on my way to a better life. Crystal recommended reading and exercises to move me through my process. She is gifted in quickly assessing a situation and very good at moving a client through the process even when, at times, the process was painful, scary, or tough. I think of Crystal every day when I wake up happy and ready to face the day.
- Claire
"I want to tell you how much your support and guidance has helped reshape my life.  I am still a work in progress, as well we all are I suppose, but I am thankful for this experience because without it, I think I would have gone my whole life without true connections with others.  You helped me come to this realization.  Thank you for sharing that gift with me."
​- Starr
"Finding you was a divine blessing and I will always be grateful to you for your support, encouragement, guidance, and tremendous kindness.  I hope you know how much you have impacted my life, but more importantly, just how much you are appreciated.  You helped me through the worst, so I can give myself my best and I will never forget that.  You are an angel in disguise and I will always be in your debt.  A million thank yous."
 - Paige
"I want to thank you for all that you've done for me this year.  You have helped guide me through the most difficult and trying time in my life.   I am forever grateful."
- John
"I owe my life to you.  If you only knew how much you have helped me, just  going to see you helps me (stay) in line.  Please keep on doing this, you're a very special person."
​- Dennis
"Thank you for being there for me through one of the difficult times in my life, and helping me learn about myself.  I am so very grateful."
- Chad
 "I worked with Crystal consistently for about three years and during that time she provided me a safe place to talk about my life, my worries and my frustrations.  She is a wonderful listener and provides solid feedback and suggestions that I use on a daily basis. She also provided the same environment and information for both of my teenage daughters.  It was a difficult time in our lives and Crystal was able to provide all three of us objective, practical and friendly support."

"If you have the opportunity to work with Crystal, definitely do it. She was instrumental in improving my parenting and my marriage. My life has benefited in incalculable ways because of her help and guidance. I can't recommend her highly enough!"

"Thank-you for showing me the light at the end of this tunnel.  I would not have survived this journey without you."
​- David
"Crystal was helpful to understand about my coping mechanisms and my co-dependency behaviors."
