Cynthia O'Donnell


About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been working with individuals for the past 28 years. I earned my Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Illinois-Chicago in 1992 and a Masters of Religion (MAR) degree from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary in 2013. I am a Board Certified Professional Christian Counselor and also have experience with the healing process of the 12 steps and incorporating the steps into the counseling process.

Sometimes you don't know where to turn, what to do or who to talk too as life circumstances can be overwhelming. Maybe you need someone to help you sort through your thoughts and choices, there are times in everyone's life that this can happen, you are not alone. After almost 30 years in practice I still love what I do, helping people navigate through their individual issues, relational conflicts, or just finding their way back to emotional wellness. I specialize in anxiety, depression, grief/loss, Christian counseling, chronic/terminal illness, communication difficulties and life transitions. I believe everyone has the answers within and sometimes you just need someone to help you unlock the door. I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you personally.
