I am a licensed clinical therapist in Wyoming with over 30 years of experience as a social worker. I have spent my entire career serving youth and families often involved in the criminal justice and foster care system. I am a strong believer that every child deserves a permanent family, either through safe family reunification, adoption or guardianship. I also strongly advocate that children have the right to be raised with their family if it is safe. One of my greatest joys is working with alumni of the foster care system as they break cycles of negative behaviors and practice new skills to raise their children in a healthy safe home. Serving this population I have developed skills for depression, anxiety, abandonment, trauma, all forms of abuse and neglect, parenting, relationships and special needs of children of incarcerated parents and the incarcerated parent. I work with families on adoption preparation, disruption and the importance of birth family involvement and management.
As a foster and adoptive parent I have learned to draw on my experiences but be open and willing to listen and brainstorm new ways to help youth and families heal.
My counseling style is relaxed with an appropriate sense of humor. Dignity and respect are rights everyone human being deserves. and I honor different perspectives and lifestyles. I use solution focused, motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, person centered therapies.
I will start where people are and walk with them towards healing.

I love having Cindy as my therapist. She is a good listener and always gives me good advice and support. I started working with her while I was going through a difficult time, and over time I got better and better every day, one session at a time. I highly recommend Cindy, she is very responsive and accommodating to your schedule and needs.
