About Me




I’m Here to Help !
My goal is to create a safe space for you to share your pain. I strongly believe working together in a strong supportive, professional relationship is an important key to a great outcome. For 20 plus years, I have had the joy of helping individuals, groups and families to resolve a wide range of problems and reduce emotional distress. With compassion and empathy, I will help to restore your equilibrium in distressing times, so you can become functional again. If you have unresolved issues from childhood, I am exceptionally trained to handle that as well. We can go as deep as you desire—It’s up to you.

Working in partnership, we will identify your strengths, then use them as a springboard to gain a more enjoyable life. We will work to help you gain important insight into issues which have become stumbling blocks, then devise strategies to help reduce the pain, along with acquiring skills to cope more effectively.

Cynthia has helped me seek healing when I thought all hope was lost. She has helped me see the long-term gain of therapy. It can be easy to shy away from the painful parts of life, but she is able to lift me up and had helped me realize that I am capable and strong enough to face adversity.

I feel so blessed to have been paired with Cynthia Luellen. She listens and truly cares about you and your difficulties. She provides structure and feedback, and works with you to figure out tools that are helpful and personalized to you. She's also not afraid to call you out when you haven't done the homework, which for me made it obvious she really cared about my success and advancement. Thank you to her for being a great counselor.

Cynthia has been a God sent. Thanks to Cynthia, I'm joyful and full of peace, despite going through a divorce after a 30÷ year relationship. Cynthia has helped me to formulate goals, and always pretty much immediately responds to my journal entries. I definitely would, and have recommended BetterHelp to friends.

I have been working with Cynthia for a few months now and she has helped me work through so much. She is always supportive and knows how to encourage me when I need it. She is very patient and always makes sure that I feel comfortable when we start diving into deep waters. She's taught me tools to cope with my anxiety that are useful in so many other areas of my life as well. She's helped me come into my own strength and really grow as a person. I am so grateful for Cynthia!
