Hello, and welcome to my page! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in California with over 19 years of experience working with children, youth, and adults in a variety of settings. I started out my career providing case management/counseling services and eventually went on to take management and leadership positions in community-based organizations. In the last 12 years, I have also been supervising and training bachelor and graduate students to provide case management and therapeutic services. I enjoy reading, playing word and puzzle games, and gardening (beginner).
My specialty is working with people experiencing a wide range of challenges including self-confidence, depression, anxiety, pregnancy and/or parenting, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and various types of trauma such as sexual, emotional, and physical abuse.
My counseling style is down to earth, compassionate, and caring. I believe in honesty, treating everyone with dignity and respect, and having an open mind. My goal is to create a nonjudgmental, empathetic atmosphere where individuals feel safe to share their thoughts and feelings.
My approach combines active listening, strength-based, solution-focused, and cognitive behavioral theory. I will tailor our work together to meet your specific needs. I believe in providing the tools you need to live a more fulfilling life.
Whatever your struggles may be, you are not alone. I am here for you. It takes courage and strength to reach out for help. By reaching out for support, you have already taken the first step towards improving your life and achieving your goals.
I look forward to working with you!
- Stress, Anxiety

I also have experience in Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Anger management, Self esteem

Cynthia is great. She listens and gives good feedback. I have had a great experience so far and look forward to sessions with her.
Very good and supportive
I feel she listens very well. I’m happy with her and feel she will be able to help. I also appreciate the multiple ways I can contact her she always responds within the time she told me to expect.
Cynthia has been amazing in listening and offering great tools to assist me in handling my mental health! She has helped me immensely in understanding how to help myself and open up about what I have had going on in my life for quite some time! I couldn’t be happier with how she has helped me in these last few weeks and I have definitely seen a change in myself.
I like the way she teaches me and how she gives me skills in a nice way- she explains well. She is an excellent teacher.
