Christopher Crawford Jr.

Counseling Specialist: Licensed Professional Counselor

Hi. I am Christopher Crawford and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).


I received my master’s degree from Xavier University . I also have an advanced certificate from the William Glasser Institute in Reality Therapy.

Fun fact about me : I am a certified Reiki Healer, a NATURAL system of healing that utilizes energy to help facilitate balance and wellness in your life. I often employ Mindfulness and Eastern philosophical techniques in my work. Look at me as your co-pilot, assisting you in your navigation and return to a point where you feel balanced.


I structure my work to help you identify the BELIEFS and CHOICES that you are making which are creating your reality...that's right, YOU are the creator of YOUR life! There is no room for excuses. Learn to INTENTIONALLY create your life to live the quality of existence that YOU deserve! 

I look forward to working with you.

Kelly Lane

Counseling Specialist

Hi, I’m Kelly Lane.  I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) at Sam Nabil Counseling Services.  I received my master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Xavier University. 


Fun fact about me:  I am completing my dissertation at the University of Kentucky in Education; my area of interest is mental health services for school-aged children, adolescents, and their families.  I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio but I love to travel.  I enjoy learning first-hand about other cultures.   My favorite destination thus far was a trip to Cape Town, South Africa.


Throughout my professional career, I’ve worked with a diverse clientele assisting children, adolescents, adults, and families.  I typically work with individuals, couples, or families to help them uncover patterns of thoughts or behaviors that are creating challenges in their relationships or lives.  I view counseling as a collaborative process where I assist clients in meeting their goals while exploring their belief system and choices.  I am passionate about helping others and believe all people have the capacity to better their lives and improve their functioning.  I approach counseling in an open, honest and compassionate manner, providing support and encouragement as we work together towards meaningful change.  I welcome the opportunity to work with you and take this journey with you.

I was born and raised in Japan and lived/studied/worked in multiple locations in the USA and Japan.  I have a diverse knowledge of different worlds and cultures and I speak English and Japanese fluently. I enjoy working with diversity. It is invigorating for me to work with clients from different ages, backgrounds, and cultures who have different traditions, belief systems, and life styles. 


As a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) in Kentucky, I have helped many children, teens, and adults in overcoming a wide range of challenges in their relationships, work, or study. I typically work with both individuals and couples.

My ultimate goal is to walk with you as you bring about the positive changes you craved and create the meaningful and purposeful life you deserve.
