About Krystal Mazzola
Hi, I’m Krystal Mazzola Wood and I’m so appreciative you are here.
As a licensed marriage and family therapist, I created the Healthy Relationship Foundation to support you with systems which are proven effective to overcome issues related to a lack of self-love, poor boundaries, communication and intimacy. These systems I’ve developed after more than a decade of clinical practice.
My passion for recovery stems from my own struggles with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and codependency. I grew up in an abusive, alcoholic home which negatively impacted my mental and relationship health. Through my early adulthood, I struggled every day with painful emotions stemming from my trauma. This led to difficulty with accepting, and loving, myself as well as having healthy relationships with others. Despite this, I always knew healing was possible.
I’ve dedicated my entire life to healing and eventually found the path to recovery. I’m humbled and proud to share that I truly love myself unconditionally now (truly amazing!) and have a life filled with healthy relationships.
Over time, through my own recovery, and my work with countless clients, I developed the systems I hope to teach you. Some of these steps, and skills, are featured in my two best-selling books, The Codependency Recovery Plan: A 5 Step Guide to Understand, Accept and Break Free from the Codependent Cycle and The Codependency Workbook: Simple Practices for Developing and Maintaining Your Independence.
Wherever you are in your personal journey, I’m here to support you. I update my blog weekly with free articles to manage stress, decrease self-judgment improve your boundaries, and have stronger relationships. What’s unique about this blog is the expert guidance that’s packed into every article. I ensure that the strategies I provide are proven effective both by research and clinical practice. This isn’t just theory – these steps and skills truly work to change your life with practice!
You may also receive free support by receiving my regular emails in which I go deeper into the steps to have healthy relationships with others and yourselves. I also love to provide my email list free bonuses like surprise coupon codes for my products, book giveaways, and worksheets.
If you want to learn my 4-step healthy boundaries system which isn’t featured in my books or anywhere else, I encourage you to participate in my course, Confidently Authentic: Stop People Pleasing and Start Being True to Yourself. This is a 4-week self-paced course which includes my expert, personalized, support and guidance. Your course purchase provides you access to an exclusive Facebook group to receive answers to any questions that come up for you during these 4 weeks and beyond.
Finally, if you want to connect with me and others for more accountability and guidance, I offer group coaching packages every few months. In these sessions, I address topics related to overcoming perfectionism, establishing healthier boundaries, reducing stress, and learning to love, trust, and accept yourself more.
Thank you for being here and allowing me to support you!
“I started seeing Krystal a few years ago, before she started her own practice. I feel like I grew with her and that is the most wonderful part about therapy with her. She assisted me with couples counseling and also guided me down my own path with EMDR to heal my PTSD. I have since graduated therapy, as I was able to meet every single goal I had with her. She is a caring, patient, open-minded, gifted and natural healer that I would recommend to anyone. She is the only therapist that has ever helped me take action instead of just talk about my issues, helping me actually recover instead of just maintain. For that, I am forever grateful!” – Previous client
