I am a licensed clinical social worker in Kansas and Missouri for over 20 years. In my years working as a social worker, I have worked in a variety of settings, including private practice for over 15 years, where I have provided counseling services to individuals, couples, families and groups. I have experience working with adults of all ages, children and adolescents. I have worked with survivors of childhood physical and sexual abuse, as well as survivors of domestic violence and other traumas. I also have experience in working with clients who are attempting to manage grief and all types of loss, as well as anger and emotional management and all forms of anxiety and panic disorders, including agoraphobia. In addition, I have also worked with couples on gaining clarity in their commitment to each other, improving their communication, understanding of themselves individually and as a couple and in building/rebuilding their trust, respect and affection for each other.
My treatment approach is warm, open and welcoming to all clients and their life experiences. I attempt to find commonality in experiences in building rapport and use this commonality to normalize clients feelings and experiences. I partner with clients in developing their realistic and achievable goals for treatment, as well as working toward those goals. It is my belief that all of us have the answers to our problems, but obstacles sometimes obscure those answers; therefore, my role as counselor is to partner with and assist clients in exploring and minimizing their obstacles in order to clearly see their solutions and formulate the appropriate response to those solutions. I recognize that it takes an aware and determined person to take the steps to improve their life; I honor my client's decision to enhance their life.
I am here to assist and empower you on your journey to better well-being. Taking the first step to sign up for individual therapy can take courage and commitment and I am proud of you for getting started! I look forward to hearing from you!

Cynthia's warm but straightforward communication is absolutely perfect. I feel very in control of my therapy experience as she gives me guardrails to tap into my own inner wisdom. Cynthia intuitively knows when I need to dig deeper on a subject, when I need particular kinds of support, and when I just need someone to cheer me on. I've grown so much with her guidance. I would recommend Cynthia to anyone on the tumultuous (and sometimes exciting) road to self discovery.
