About Me

I am a licensed Psychotherapist and National Certified Counselor who specializes in couples and family therapy. I am also a former Certified Family Mediator for the State of Florida. In addition to being a Therapist I am also an Adjunct Professor. For the past 11 years I have worked with diverse clients from all walks of life. No judgements, no labels! I also work with individuals who wish to focus on their own personal growth. I have over 30 years of extensive background experience in the Performing Arts and over 15 years in the Aviation industry. My experience in these two fields assist those clients particularly struggling with body issues, self esteem, relationships, "parenting from a distance" and infidelity. I work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues providing services that span from therapy for depression and grief counseling to parenting support, end of life issues and beyond.

Each client is unique; so with genuine warmth, compassion and understanding I offer a customized approach for each client which can combine: Solution-Focused, Person Centered, Intergenerational, Gottman's Method , and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I collaborate with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the goals they wish to accomplish in therapy. If you are ready to walk the path to achieving your best "Self," I am ready to walk with you. Let's do this!!

Amazing

Written by C.L. on Jun 12, 2020 after counseling with Cynthia for 1 year and 6 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, and self esteem

Cynthia is one of the smartest, most compassionate and thoughtful therapists I’ve ever worked with. She deep dives into each scenario and conversation without hesitation. She’s been truly instrumental in helping improve communication in my marriage, alleviate my anxiety and create focused plans for future growth. But the best part about her is, that she really cares, she’s demonstrates a real investment in me as a person. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Cynthia is thoughtful, empathetic and she challenges me to think through situations. She is helpful in providing additional resources when they are appropriate. She always responds to messages — I have benefited a lot from working with her!

Cynthia Pinion is a kind-hearted, caring, and inspiring human and therapist. I was going through a really hard time before joining BetterHelp and wasn't sure if anything or anyone could get me out of my funk. After speaking with Cynthia once, I had new hope. She made me feel optimistic about my goals and future. She was patient with me and was always fully attentive and engaged in all of our conversations. I felt very comfortable with Cynthia because she was always 100% there for me and my problems. I definitely recommend her as a therapist. She will give you the support and help you need to achieve your therapy goals. 10/10.

Cynthia has been a great source of support during my journey of self-discovery.

Cynthia is an amazing guide through my ongoing journey toward my best-self. I started Better Help with past issues and future goals in mind and she has transitioned with me through all of it. I'm looking forward to what we can accomplish together in the coming year.

Cynthia is a gift, especially to anyone looking for the right therapist. I'm so grateful to have found her after an exhausting trial of several others. She ticks off all the boxes of what's required of a good therapist and even goes beyond. My sessions with Cynthia have brought (and are still bringing) me everything I've wanted from my life. She is a great listener and offers the most empathetic, analytical and respectful responses. I'm so lucky to have the support of someone who genuinely cares about those she helps. Take a chance on her, your life just might change for the best!

Cynthia is hands down the best counselor I've had the pleasure to work with. When I first started with betterhelp and Cynthia, there were a lot of worksheets I had to fill out; I thought: "Is this what this website is? Just worksheets?" But they're very important and offer a huge insight into where my anxieties stemmed from.
Cynthia is extremely easy to talk to and allowed me to open up like nobody else could. I felt comfortable talking to her about anything; even my embarrassing shortcomings and the deep down dirty stuff that nobody wants to truly accept about themselves.
She's available for video chat and regular messaging and the flexibility is a wonderful asset. Sometimes I just wasn't up for a face to face and needed to get my thoughts out in a giant rant. She got back to me quickly and always knew the right thing to say and the right questions to ask.
I cannot recommend her enough.

Cynthia is very responsive and always on - like I can get on almost everyday and she will respond to someone I write or post. She also likes to give homework which I think is good so I can continue to work on myself daily. Appreciate all Cynthia's hard work.

Miss Pinion is the absolute best! She really understands my needs even when it’s difficult for me to explain them, and her worksheets are the bomb .com! Highly recommend for anyone in need of support and healing (which I think we all need from time to time). She’s very personable and kind.

Amazing counsellor. She responds so fast and is so caring. I love Cynthia’s demeanor and her willingness to help whenever I need it. I can’t impress on the public enough how fast she replies. It’s amazing. When I’m in trouble, she’s always there for me.

Written by K.U. on May 30, 2019 after counseling with Cynthia for 8 months on issues concerning relationship issues

AMAZING!!! Cynthia is absolutely amazing!!! I was reluctant to do online therapy but really it's the only way to go and I couldn't have received a better Therapist than Cynthia. Cynthia is full of knowledge and wisdom and really makes you look at life from a different perspective and the best way possible. I was undergoing some difficult times in my career and personal life and those closest to me were going farther and farther apart. After several months of therapy sessions with Cynthia, I'm feeling like a million bucks and I owe it all to the guidance that Cynthia offered through BetterHelp. BIG Thank You Cynthia!!!

Cynthia is someone who understands my problems well, and is a re-assuring voice of compassion and reason. She has an ability to encourage me to me feel empowered and positive. This is exactly what I wanted from counseling, but never thought I'd achieve until this experience.

Written by V.A. on Mar 23, 2019 after counseling with Cynthia for 6 months on issues concerning intimacy-related issues

Cynthia is excellent! She always responds via the many communication methods available. She is very intuitive and is able to see a little bit about what you are not saying. She is the so worth your time and money. I cannot believe how much better she had me in such a short period of time, but don't stop when you start feeling better. Stop a few months after that or just do 1 session/month until you really have a hold of the 'new you'! God bless!

Written by C.R. on Feb 05, 2019 after counseling with Cynthia for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and intimacy-related issues

Cynthia has been so warm, welcoming, and understanding since the first communication.

Written by J.O. on Jan 31, 2019 after counseling with Cynthia for 2 weeks on issues concerning addictions, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, and self esteem

It’s like talking to a great friend - one that offers practical advice - she has empathy for your situation and concerns and offered tools to work on to help you get past these - I’ve only had two sessions with Cynthia but already it’s proving more effective than hours and hours of therapy I’ve had in the past - would recommend to connect with Cynthia anyone wanting overcome obstacles holding that back in relationships and life.

Fantastic service. She helped me a lot.

Written by O.Y. on Oct 19, 2018 after counseling with Cynthia for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, eating disorders, self esteem, and career difficulties

Cynthia is fantastic at what she does. I started to open about my problems from the past where I couldn't even talk about it without crying. It's now been two weeks and I already can saying words and phrases I couldn't before. She's amazing, she's listened to me, she's asked me questions I never thought of before and she's helped me to accept my past.

She’s incredibly sweet, understanding and supportive. She’s a great listener and I feel comfortable telling her things I can’t tell anyone else. That’s how a therapist should be

Written by K.E. on Sep 26, 2018 after counseling with Cynthia for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and self esteem

Cynthia is easy to talk to and down to earth. Her responses are truthful and this is what means the most to me, she says it as she sees it even if Its something I might not want to hear, it means I am under no delusions she says what the reality of my situation is and that is endlessly helpful. Having an impartial voice to guide me through things I am finding emotional tough is so beneficial. Thanks heaps Cynthia!

Written by N.A. on Aug 09, 2018 after counseling with Cynthia for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, addictions, relationship, grief, intimacy-related, and self esteem

I have tried online counseling in the past with very little success with the counselor I was matched with. With Cynthia, I felt an instant connection, which is hard to find in any counseling situation. She is supportive, direct (in a caring way) and can easily identify what areas need to be worked on to move forward.

Written by N.A. on Aug 09, 2018 after counseling with Cynthia for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, and eating

She is nice and kind. Always try to help in best possible manner.

Written by D.A. on Aug 08, 2018 after counseling with Cynthia for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, intimacy-related, self esteem, and career

I have been more than happy with Cynthia's support. She has an awesome personality, is a great listener and gives excellent feedback. Cynthia has always been on time and I am sure I can continue counting on her amazing help.

Written by N.A. on Aug 05, 2018 after counseling with Cynthia for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, and bipolar

Cynthia helped me to work through very difficult emotions and thoughts, at a time when I felt that I wasn't being heard or understood by those closest to me. Cynthia has shown great knowledge of the issues I was bringing up, and took the time to explain and rationalize my feelings to me. I'm grateful that Cynthia and BetterHelp came into my life at this very turbulent time of real helplessness.

Written by N.A. on Aug 03, 2018 after counseling with Cynthia for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, and self esteem

In just two sessions with Cynthia, I feel a little more clear and aware of how to take control of my own personal care. She deeply listens and offers no-fluff advice that opens my perspective. I look forward to my sessions with Cynthia because I trust she's committed to the success of my healing.
