Director: Crystal Clancy, MA, LMFT email

Crystal is an LMFT, and was the mastermind behind our highly successful Daisy Dash 5K. She became involved in Perinatal Mental Health as her journey to building a family came with both infertility and postpartum depression. Realizing how little help there was available, she decided to build a practice in
these areas, and helped form PPSM. She is involved with Postpartum Support International as a State Coordinator, as well as being part of the Justice & Advocacy Committee, working to better arm expert witnesses with the education that they need to be involved in perinatal mental health related court
