About me

Hello, Life is about moving forward and growing. As individuals we should continue to grow and never stop learning.
I work with individuals of all ages including families and couples in need. I work successfully with a wide range of concerns including, Motivation, Lifestyle changes, ADHD, Anxiety, Depression as well as the many other life struggles that need professional and confidential attention (assistance).
I am very familiar with drug and alcohol addictions, and feel that I can be of help in this area. As well I work with the LGBT population and am an active proponent for their lifestyle and struggles.
I am a member of the Kentucky Counseling Association and American Psychological Association.
I joined a private practice with a Psychiatrist in Northern Kentucky that I had been with for the last 17 years until moving back home to Missouri 2 years ago. I was also employed for 10 years with a State agency. I have a Masters degree in Professional Counseling and I am presently earning a PhD in General Psychology.
A bit more about myself;

My counseling style is based on The Carl Roger's idea of unconditional positive regard. In simple terms; for a person to grow they need an environment of genuine openness and self-disclosure with total and unconditional acceptance. Therefore with full empathy I will inquire and interact respectfully to fully understand your specific situation.
When appropriate I also use ideas based on Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) which include: Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Interpersonal Effectiveness and Emotional Regulation.
I am very eclectic and interactive with my clients. My counseling is based in The Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) model. To make life changes or improve our situational well being we must likewise change our mental thought process. I can help you understand this process.

I am here to help you; with your goals challenges or struggles.
Thank you for looking at my profile and good Karma to You.

Cindi is the best! She’s very down to earth, and really listens. She has taught me valuable techniques to help lessen my anxiety, and it’s already helping! I’m 3 sessions in, and already feeling hopeful for the first time in a long time.

Cynthia is insightful, gives excellent advice, offers great tools to help work through your issues but best of all she is not a yes person. She doesn’t yes you or agree with you just to make you feel good. She is straight forward. The truth can hurt but it’s better to hear the truth so you can really look inward.

Love cindi to death. She helped me more than any other therapist I've had. Listens well, really motivated, helpful advice and very compassionate and understanding. Highly recommend.

Cindi is a very understanding and compassionate person. She’s personable without crossing the line into too-friendly territory. Usually, we talk about whatever is on my mind. Sometimes when I don’t know what I’m feeling she’ll bring up a concern (that usually is still a problem) that I mentioned in our conversations before. Then we talk about it. Sometimes I cry. But I always feel better. It helps to just talk to someone who listens, cares for your well-being, and provides the tools you need to start feeling better.

I come from a background where we don’t talk about our problems. Mental health issues weren’t real issues and we didn’t seek medical help or therapy for issues that are “in your head”, so I was terrified to start seeing a therapist.

Cindi put all my worries at ease and helped me through some of the darkest times in my life. I couldn’t ask for a better therapist! I’m so glad I was paired with her when I signed up.

I’ve been seeing Cindi regularly again for the past few months, on and off since the fall of 2019.
