Hello! I am Dr. Crystal M. Duclos (many people prefer to simply call me “Dr. D”). I am a licensed clinical psychologist at Stonestreet & Associates and specialize in providing individual therapy and psychological assessments for adolescents and adults in the Topeka area. I recognize we all have moments where we feel lost. Therefore, I take great pride in providing that little extra support and professional guidance to help my clients rediscover their inner selves.
I work with adults on a number of presenting concerns including adjustment and mood disorders (e.g. depression and anxiety), relationship problems, and academic underachievement, to more difficult issues like personality disorders, thought disorders and dementia. I generally utilize both cognitive-behavioral (including behavioral modification) and interpersonal approaches in therapy sessions.
Psychological Assessment and Consultation
I provide timely and affordable psychological evaluations for adolescents and adults to determine personality and emotional functioning, IQ, ADHD, mental stability, etc. At the end of the assessment, I am able to pinpoint specific diagnoses and offer recommendations. These tests may also be requested from the courts, from other treatment providers, etc. I also provide psychological consultations and professional presentations to other practitioners, business professionals, and organizations.

You can also email me with general questions (please be aware that both the security and prompt delivery of email cannot be guaranteed, therefore, do not include sensitive clinical information in emails, and never use it in an emergency).

I offer daytime, evening, and occasional weekend appointments. However, the immediate availability of openings varies. Please call and the receptionist can help us find a good mutual time to meet.
What types of payment do you accept?
I accept cash, check, and most major credit cards. If you have specific concerns regarding payment, please call and the office manager can help you.
Do you accept insurance?
I am a participating provider of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas, and Century Health. Please call the member services number on your insurance card to determine your exact benefits. I will obtain your membership information during our first meeting in order to verify and process your insurance benefits. If you do not have these insurance carriers, you should know that many health insurance plans will reimburse the insured individual for some portion of the out-of-network outpatient therapy fee and/or assessment. To determine the extent of your coverage, please call your insurer directly.
What is your cancellation policy?
I have a standard 24-hour cancellation policy. I ask that you give me at least 24-hours notice if you will be unable to make a scheduled session, otherwise you will be charged for the full session fee. In the event of severe weather or emergencies, you will not be charged. Please note that insurance generally does not reimburse for missed sessions.
What should I do if I need immediate help?
In the event of an emergency, visit your local emergency department, call 911, or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1(800) 273-8255.
