Cindy is wonderful. She clearly understand what I try to describe to her even if I feel like I’m not doing a great job. She asks insightful questions and makes me see things in new perspectives. I always feel heard, respected, and very comfortable with her - this has been since day one. Cannot recommend her more!

I love Cindy. She listens and provides the best support.

Written on Feb 05, 2024 after therapy with Cindy for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, bipolar disorder, coping with life changes, coaching, compassion fatigue,

Cindy is a great listener, and meets you where you are. I also enjoy that she doesn’t force clients to relive their trauma and explain every detail and how it made you feel, but if it comes up organically we explore it and if not we don’t. She stays up to date with clients and sends messages throughout the week her expertise and care shows through in her actions and she truly listens. She focuses on the now instead of focusing on problems in the past.
