About me

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) in AL and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in FL with 20 years of experience as a therapist and counselor in a variety of settings. I have helped people with a wide range of challenges including depression, anxiety, stress, career concerns, family and couples issues and military issues. I also have experience working with trauma and abuse survivors.

My therapy style is warm, inviting and open. I believe in treating people with respect, sensitivity and compassion, avoiding labels and other stigma. My background is in cognitive behavioral therapy and client-centered counseling. My goal is to work with you to develop treatment plans that fit you and your specific needs and concerns.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and the first steps it takes towards change. If you feel you are ready to take those steps, I am here to support and encourage you.

I look forward to working with you!

Cynthia immediately made me feel comfortable expressing myself and the whole range of emotions I was feeling, she never judged, never took away from my experiences and always made me feel that she was an ally in my turmoils. She is a wonderful sounding board and her compassion made me feel safe to talk things through with her. Talking with her has made a world of difference for me and I am so grateful for her.

Cynthia is a very good listener, she is giving advice and shares her own experience to help too. I feel really at ease with her and with the few times I talked to her, I feel really able to share private things with no problem!
