About Me

Hi,‌‌ ‌‌my‌‌ ‌‌name‌‌ ‌‌is‌‌ ‌‌Cindy.‌‌ ‌‌Nine‌‌ ‌‌years‌‌ ‌‌ago‌‌ ‌‌I‌‌ ‌‌made‌‌ ‌‌the‌‌ ‌‌best‌‌ ‌‌decision‌‌ ‌‌of‌‌ ‌‌my‌‌ ‌‌life.‌‌ ‌‌I‌‌ ‌‌decided‌‌ ‌‌to‌‌ ‌‌‌ ‌
complete‌‌ ‌‌my‌‌ ‌‌education‌‌ ‌‌with‌‌ ‌‌a‌‌ ‌‌Masters‌‌ ‌‌of‌‌ ‌‌Science‌‌ ‌‌in‌‌ ‌‌Psychology‌‌ ‌‌so‌‌ ‌‌that‌‌ ‌‌I‌‌ ‌‌would‌‌ ‌‌be‌‌ ‌‌able‌‌ ‌‌to‌‌ ‌‌help‌‌ ‌‌‌ ‌
others.‌‌ ‌‌I‌‌ ‌‌completed‌‌ ‌‌and‌‌ ‌‌began‌‌ ‌‌a‌‌ ‌‌most‌‌ ‌‌rewarding‌‌ ‌‌career‌‌ ‌‌that‌‌ ‌‌I‌‌ ‌‌am‌‌ ‌‌now‌‌ ‌‌on‌‌ ‌‌my‌‌ ‌‌seventh‌‌ ‌‌year‌‌ ‌‌and‌‌ ‌‌‌ ‌
still‌‌ ‌‌passionate‌‌ ‌‌about‌‌ ‌‌what‌‌ ‌‌I‌‌ ‌‌do‌‌ ‌‌and‌‌ ‌‌consider‌‌ ‌‌myself‌‌ ‌‌very‌‌ ‌‌fortunate‌‌ ‌‌to‌‌ ‌‌be‌‌ ‌‌able‌‌ ‌‌to‌‌ ‌‌do‌‌ ‌‌this.‌‌ ‌‌‌ ‌

‌proven‌‌ ‌‌to‌‌ ‌‌be‌‌ ‌‌very‌‌ ‌‌successful.‌ ‌‌Some‌‌ ‌‌models‌‌ ‌‌do‌‌ ‌‌not‌‌ ‌‌work‌‌ ‌‌for‌‌ ‌‌all‌‌ ‌‌people‌‌ ‌‌and‌‌ ‌‌parts‌‌ ‌‌of‌‌ ‌‌other‌‌ ‌
‌models‌‌ ‌‌are‌‌ ‌‌helpful‌‌ ‌‌many‌‌ ‌‌times‌,‌ ‌‌particularly‌‌ ‌‌when‌‌ ‌‌co-occurring ‌‌issues‌‌ ‌‌exist.‌ ‌You‌ ‌decide‌ ‌what‌ ‌
you‌ ‌want‌ ‌to‌ ‌work‌ ‌on,‌ ‌it‌ ‌is‌ ‌then‌ ‌put‌ ‌in‌ ‌a‌ ‌treatment‌ ‌plan‌ ‌and‌ ‌we‌ ‌go‌ ‌from‌ ‌there‌ ‌using‌ ‌the‌ ‌best‌ ‌model‌ ‌

I have just started working with Cindy and I already feel like we are accomplishing more in the first two weeks than I have accomplished in some months and many dollars with other therapists. She listens so empathetically and is very communicative. I’m so excited for my journey.

If you're lucky enough to get matched with Cindy- you will get better. She's offers such a safe environment to bare the ugliest parts of depression, trauma, anxiety, and gives you the tools to turn them into strength. I look forward to our sessions because she not only provides a space for me to talk, she provides a space for me to heal. Thank you Cindy!

Cindy is very personable and easy to talk to. She helped me work through some issues that seemed overwhelming, but she helped me break them down into manageable pieces and process them more effectively. She was very validating, never making me feel like I was "wrong" or "off base" for my concerns and feelings, but she also helped me identify behaviors that are unhelpful and guided me on how to approach them. After my time with Cindy, I felt more empowered and grounded.

I absolutely love Cindy Hannigan I feel like she understands my feelings and she is helping me to feel better about myself. She is patient and caring when she talks with me. I would recommend anyone having issues to seek help from her, she is a wonderful soul and truly shows she cares about me. That means a-lot to me , I have been to counselors offices, trying to seek help and they just did not seem to truly care about my situation, I feel like Cindy truly cares, she feels like family to me. I do appreciate all she has and continues to do to help me through this hard time in my life, she is definitely a professional!

Work with me!
