Mark Crutchfield, MA, NCC
A native of Northern Virginia, Mark began his career earning a Master’s Degree in Communications from Marshall University where he taught interpersonal communications. After graduating, he began his career as a TV producer/director creating educational and strategic videos for Federal, county and commercial entities. He also served as an adjunct faculty member at Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA), teaching communications.
Eventually, Mark became a consultant, with over 20 years of experience in leadership development, change management, mass communications, large-scale transformations, team development, organizational cultural change, leadership coaching and individual/personal change. Mark has served as an advisor to several senior officials and military officers working on large-scale change efforts in the Federal government and U.S. Military, with an understanding of the importance people (both leadership and individual contributors) play in such transformations. His experience includes working with 13 different Federal agencies in the Washington Metropolitan Area.
Recognizing the value of people (both self and others) in the corporate world and in life itself, he felt the need to achieve a second Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Argosy University. His internships were serving Veteran patients at the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Washington D.C. and Fort Belvoir, VA. His areas of focus included dealing with depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, low self-esteem issues and substance abuse disorders. He enjoys working with a variety of clients using Person-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques and is a National Certified Counselor.
In his spare time, Mark listens to music (all genres), reading biographies and spending time with his family. He is a believer in the Latin adage “ Non-Nobis Solum Sed Toti Mundo Nati” which translates: “Not for ourselves, but for the whole world were we born!”
Everyone has value, can make a difference and matters!
