Currently Dr. Crumlish is the Assistant Director of the Suicide Prevention Lab at the Catholic University of America. She has taught courses in the graduate psychology program at Catholic University in psychopathology, diagnostic assessment and supervised students in the psychotherapy practicum.

Prior to joining WPC in 2002, Dr. Crumlish was a staff psychologist at the Kingsbury Center where she conducted psychological assessments of school-aged children and adolescents and provided individual and group psychotherapy to students attending the Kingsbury School.
Dr. Crumlish's practice includes assessment and treatment of adults and couples.

Additional areas of interest include sexual issues for individuals and couples, issues related to retirement and aging, and working with clergy and ministers. Dr. Crumlish's treatment approach is flexible and pragmatic, with a core belief that gaining insight into one's self and others will lead to desired behavioral changes and an overall sense of well-being. Dr. Crumlish utilizes insight-oriented, cognitive, and behavioral approaches with an emphasis on tailoring treatment to each individual.
Below are copies of forms that Dr. Crumlish uses in her practice. The first is a brief intake form, which allows Dr. Crumlish to gather some basic administrative and clinical information about you. If you have time then it is helpful, but certainly not mandatory, to fill this out before your first session. Copies will also be available in the waiting room. The second form is an Agreement for Services that spells out some of the expectations of the professional relationship, as well as the legal limits to confidentiality. You do not need to download this and print it out. Dr. Crumlish will have a copy ready for you. This electronic version is provided for your reference. You will also be provided with an addendum to your agreement during one of your initial sessions that will detail your provider's specific business policies.
