Hello; thank you for taking the time to view my profile. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 20 plus years of clinical experience working as a Mental Health Therapist .
I have worked with clients experiencing a wide range of concerns to include: those dealing with the impact of past emotional or physical trauma, grief issues, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, life and career challenges. I have worked in several clinical settings to include: non profits, hospital/clinical settings and schools. I also have experience with individuals who have been dealing with a long term mental challenge such as Bi-Polar D/O and Schizophrenia. My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion; I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, mindfulness, acceptance/commitment and rational-emotive therapies. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I believe it takes courage to seek help and take the first steps in building the foundations for a more fulfilling life. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Cynthia has not only started me on my path to wellness, but she has also helped me develop a higher level of self assurance and confidence within myself. She has helped me learn to give to others without pouring out of an empty cup. I used to be afraid of therapy, but Cynthia has made me feel like I'm experiencing a warm hug since my first session with her. I would definitely recommend her!
