About Me

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! You are in the right place at the right time, and I commend you for your courage and follow-through.

My name is Cynthia Rumford-Jones and I am a Licensed Clinical Therapist (LCSW), welcome to my BetterHelp Therapist profile!

Life is pretty complex and sometimes presents us with challenges that require support and therapeutic interventions to achieve the balance and overall wellness we may desire . Today is a good day as you have taken one of the most important steps towards elevating your wellness and living a life you love; you are “taking action”.

My educational background includes a Master’s Degree in Social Work (MSW) from the University of California, Berkeley. I have over 20 years of experience working as a therapist/counselor, and an additional 10 years working in the field of social work and human services, public and private sectors. My specialties include treating anxiety, depression, trauma, and challenges related to life transitions, anger management, relationship issues, family conflict, parenting, and foster care.

I am also experienced in grief/loss, eating disorders, and challenges related to divorce and separation, multi-cultural concerns, prejudice and discrimination, and chronic mental illness.

CLINICAL APPROACHES
My therapy style is warm, supportive, interactive, and empowering. I utilize a client-centered, cognitive behavioral therapy approach with a solution focused perspective, and have training and extensive experience in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT), and Multi-Dimensional Treatment Foster Care (MTFC). As a conscientious therapist it is important to me to provide a safe, non-judgmental, therapeutic environment and offer a style and approach that best fits the needs of each individual.

I know finding a therapist who is a “good fit” is key to the overall effectiveness and successful outcome of therapy and the task of doing so can be quite arduous. May your mission to find that “good fit” be accomplished swiftly.

If you are ready to take the next step, I’m here and looking forward to partnering with you to create a treatment plan with specific and structured goals that meet your specific needs, as well supporting and empowering you as you strive to elevate your wellness.

I am confident in my therapist. It is important for this all to be private, from a therapist point of view and an app/legal platform point of view.

I’ve only just started my journey with Cynthia and I couldn’t be happier and more excited for the work we’re going to be doing.

She has such a beautiful presence. I feel heard and important in our sessions. I am also easily able to take her heed and advice. I instantly had a respect for her and her expertise.

Thank you Cynthia!

I was late for my session tonight and she still made time for me to talk about my goals and what I want to get out of therapy. The phone call lasted nearly an hour. I really appreciate her taking the time out of her busy schedule to call me late and still go through with the appointment.

She aligns with my goals and has practical ways to help with those goals.

Very thankful for her, even after one session
