Today was my first session with Ms. Cynthia and boy did I talk her ear off lol. I was up and down left to right tears to laughter and she sat there and “listened” to me no interruptions nothing and it brought me so much peace afterwards! She assigned self-care homework and suggested a webinar as well! I’m happy as of now. Thank you

Cynthia has been an amazing help to me! When I began counseling with her, I was in such a dark place, I could hardly talk without crying. After months of talking with her and listening to her insights, I felt empowered, clear-headed, hopeful and my negative self-talk was replaced with a kind and loving inner dialogue. I am so thankful for Cynthia, and the healthier path she helped me get back on!!!

I am completely new to this and Cynthia has already started helping me just in the couple of sessions. I never thought I could talk to a stranger about my personal problems, but she puts you at ease so that you feel you can open up and not be judged.

Cynthia has shown me that a good therapist is one who you genuinely feel comfortable with. I've had "interesting" experiences and am very grateful for having passed through the hands of Cynthia along my journey. She has restored my faith in therapy.
