About me

Hi, I’m Cyndi Oberdan, and if you’re reading my page, I can tell that no matter what you are going through right now, you have COURAGE. Maybe you don’t feel brave, but it takes COURAGE to ask for help, and Courage to venture “into the unknown.”

I would be honored to journey with you on this new adventure of yours.

I have been serving people for over 15 years. I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in 2006 from the University of Florida in Recreational Therapy. Later, in 2013, I earned my Master’s Degree in Social Work from Adelphi University.

Over the last 15 years, I have had the privilege to work in a variety of settings. I started off working with individuals diagnosed with a developmental or intellectual disability and their families. I had the privilege of running a family respite program, and later the honor to manage a Community Habilitation program where I assisted individuals ages 13 to 60+ with achieving their goals. These goals varied from basic life skills, to enhancing academic skills, to developing coping skills, all while increasing socialization and connection. Later I worked in Child Welfare, as a Child Protective Investigator; investigating allegations of abuse/neglect and ensuring child safety. I have also worked with families, assisting them with getting to the root of their issues while strengthening the family unit. Lastly, I have worked as a medical social worker, both in the hospital and in the outpatient Clinics, as well as in the Emergency Department. I provide crisis intervention, case management, and counseling; assisting patients with trauma, adjustment disorder, and grief.

I use an eclectic approach to meet the needs of each individual client. Treatment modalities include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Psychodynamic Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Mindfulness.

Cyndi has been extremely helpful in my journey thus far. She is attentive, listens, and offers insight into issues that I’ve been facing. Honestly, I’ve had terrible luck with therapists in the past, and this is the first time I feel good about who I’m working with. Super, super grateful.
