 Chances are you landed here in search of help for yourself or a loved one. Perhaps you are feeling anxious or stressed, and are looking for some guidance. Maybe you're the parent of a teen or college student who is noticeably more withdrawn than usual and you would like them to have someone to talk to. I often get calls from individuals who say "I just want to help my son/daughter learn some coping strategies", or "I'm tired of feeling this way". If this sounds like you or someone you love, I can help.

My name is Krista Gravatt and I am a licensed clinical social worker providing individual psychotherapy for adolescents and adults in the Ann Arbor, Michigan area. I practice evidence-based therapy for anxiety disorders and co-occuring depression. My clinical area of interest includes social anxiety, generalized anxiety, OCD and specific phobias.
My Background
 
I earned my Master of Social Work degree from The University of Michigan in 2007. I have a diverse clinical background, including working in Infant Mental Health as a home-based therapist, as well as interning as a cancer resource liaison for St. Joseph Mercy Hospital and The University of Michigan Mott Children’s hospital.​  I completed two years of post-graduate training at Michigan Medicine Department of Psychiatry Child and Adolescent clinic, where I gained considerable experience working with patients ages 4 through 18 with various diagnoses. During that time, I trained extensively in evidence-based therapy, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). I have also implemented other modalities in my practice, including Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) depending on the needs of my clients. My CBT work often utilizes Exposure-Response Prevention (ERP) techniques.​
Currently, my practice focuses on working with adolescents and adults who may suffer from anxiety disorders, such as social anxiety, generalized anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and specific phobias. Additionally, I enjoy helping teens who are struggling with depression or low self-esteem, as well as young adults who are going through life transitions such as college, a new career, or starting a family. I pull from a combination of clinical as well as personal life experiences in order to connect with those I serve. 
 
You are not alone in your suffering. I am here to walk alongside you and help you to develop the tools and skills necessary to improve your life, one step at a time. Please feel free to view my website for more information at www.counselingwithcompassion.com.
