About Dr. Collier:
Dr. Crystal Collier is an expert in adolescent brain development, prevention programming, parent coaching, addiction, family-of-origin work, and training new counselors. In 2020, she published her long-awaited neurodevelopmental prevention book, The NeuroWhereAbouts Guide, for parents and families who want to prevent youth high-risk behavior. A person in long-term recovery, Crystal has first-hand experience engaging in risky behavior as a teenager. After entering recovery at age 18, Crystal began studying everything she could get her hands on to understand why she had made such back choices and what families could do to prevent youth from engaging in high-risk situations.
