Life Skills Team - Master Social Worker
Crystal Lindquist is part of our Life Skills team at Desert Garden. She has obtained a B.A. in Psychology and a Master’s in Social Work.
Her professional experience has included being a researcher at University of Arizona and Arizona State University, Child/Family
Therapist, and a School Social Worker and Child Development Specialist. Crystal has always been fascinated with early childhood and
how early childhood experiences impact growth and development. She is extremely interested in the relationships formed with parents
and caregivers during the early years and how the quality of the relationship sets the foundation for all future development: intellectual,
social, emotional, physical and behavioral. Crystal received her certification through the Harris Institute at Southwest Human
Development . This certification allowed her to specialize in Infant/Toddler Mental Health. Crystal is also passionate about mental health
in school aged children. She is currently working towards her certified training specialization through Conscious Discipline. Conscious
Discipline integrates classroom management and social-emotional learning, discipline and self-regulation. When Crystal is not working,
she enjoys spending quality time with her family. She loves to stay active, travel, and learn from everyone around her.
