Cynthia Eades, LPC
I have worked with people suffering from a wide range of issues including mood disorders, trauma, addictions, and life transitions for 17 years. Most recently I have been working toward board certification in Christian Sex Therapy, and am currently only able to accept new clients who are struggling in this area of their lives. I have a passion to work with people who are wrestling with deep hurts and brokenness, and need hope in their lives. My philosophy of counseling is that in order to help others, I must first be emotionally and spiritually healthy, which means that I get regular check-ups from my counselor also.
After graduating from Covenant Seminary in St. Louis, MO, I relocated to Alabama where I began several years of work at a non-profit inpatient substance abuse clinic, and then, transitioned to private practice. My experience enables me to center in on the core of my clients' struggles without overlooking their pace. What this means for you is that I am fully focused on who you are first.
My approach treats both the heart and mind, while communicating deep honor and respect to my clients. I will utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as psycho-education, Narrative, and Gestalt techniques to help you find the roots of your problems and learn new ways to cope. I believe that there is tremendous strength when a person is able to tell their story in a way that is both honest and life-giving, and I am committed to guiding people toward these truths and the freedoms that follow.
Our counseling relationship will be two people working in one direction: your goals.

Cindy is awesome!! She is so knowledgeable, relatable, and knows just what to say and when. I would highly recommend her. I’ve seen many therapists but she is the best one I’ve ever been to. I am so grateful for our conversations.
