Cindy Tenaglia

LCSW

About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) outside of Phila. with over 12 years of clinical experience. I've worked with individuals, couples and families in both in-patient and out-patient settings dealing with a wide range of mental health and life issues. Prior to getting my training and degree from Bryn Mawr School of Social Work I lived at an intentional community on 130 beautiful acres in Wisconsin. Collaborating and communicating with people has always been most satisfying and important to me. My goal in providing coaching and therapy is always to promote effective solutions for whatever issues clients face. My style is warm, empathic and tailored to the individual. I am a strong advocate for self directed learning, having homeschooled my son and daughter for 9 years. I bring that same philosophy to facilitating growth in all I work with.

My work with clients is based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), an evidenced based approach to problems in living. If you would like to have a more valued and vital life, have issues or problems you struggle with, and want to reduce your struggling and increase valued living, then ACT is for you! I will collaborate with you to promote psychological flexibility and self awareness.. I utilize the ACT Matrix to collaborate with clients in discovering how to move toward who and what is important to them.

Cindy Tenaglia is by far the best therapist I've had. She doesn't ask the same few questions each session, each session has a different array of topics/discussion. I always feel listened to, respected and never judged (which in my opinion is how all therapists should be). I highly recommend her to anyone going through something, you will not be disappointed.

Cindy is great so far and I enjoy talking with her.

Cindy is so kind, compassionate, and has a great and practical approach to better perspective. I loved her personal experience close to my own and her ability to help me remove myself from my process and learn how to regroup. She’s an excellent resource and a lovely person!

Work with me!
