Dr. Cynthia Agbayani

LPC

About me

I am a licensed professional counselor with over 25 years of experience counseling at-risk children, youth, adults, and families. My areas of special interest are attachment disorder, trauma, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, parenting, and severe mental illness. I have worked with clients of all ages with issues along the spectrum of mental illness from mild depression to schizophrenia.

I am direct and empathic with people. My approach to counseling is person-centered and eclectic, combining attachment-focused therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, trauma-focused therapy, solution-focused therapy, and mindfulness to meet the needs of the individual/family. I believe in a collaborative approach to treatment and will work with you to develop a plan that meets your unique need(s).

Change is hard and I will be there with you every step of your journey, cheering you on and guiding you to reach your goals and achieve mental wellness. I look forward to working with you.

Throughout my time with Cynthia so far, we have discussed everything from childhood trauma to my day to day life. She has cheered me on in my highest and always knows what to say in my lowest. Truly, a wonderful counselor/therapist

Dr. Agbayani has been absolutely wonderful for me. She is kind and straightforward, listens and truly cares when we talk. I don’t know where I’d be without the help and expertise of Dr. Agbayani these past few months.

Dr. Agbayani was wonderful to work with. She was kind but realistic and I always felt heard. She gave me things to focus on durning the week, compassion for my frustrations and pushes when I needed them. I would highly recommend Dr. Agbayani to anyone who needs a little peace and balance!

I have broken more ground in such a short time with Dr. Agbayani than I have in my other failed attempts at finding a counsellor or therapist. You can tell when someone does what they do with a passion for their work, and that explains her perfectly. I feel I can be completely honest with her, and that is a refreshing feeling. I just wish I started with her sooner!

Work with me!
