Philosophy

Life can be filled with a variety of experiences, from joyous or challenging to stressful and debilitating. I believe we are meant to live surrounded with social support to manage the highs and lows of life. Sometimes, we may not have that support and we may feel alone or need help with coping. I am glad to serve and be the help that you and/or your child may need.

I believe in the dignity of the human person, that means treating you and/or your child with the respect and compassion that is deserved. I believe in providing a safe place for you and/or your child where there is empathy and understanding without judgment to help the healing process.

I want you to know there is hope, there are options, and there are people in this world that truly care.

Cynthia is a licensed social worker. She is passionate about working with children and families. She spent time supervising visitations of children in state conservatorship and their families. During her undergraduate practicum, she provided case management and worked to empower formerly trafficked and sexually exploited women. For her graduate practicum, she managed a caseload of children, adolescents, and adults where she completed mental health assessments and provided skills training services in an outpatient setting.

She has experience helping people living with anxiety, depression, trauma, and suicidality. She also has experience working with children with anger issues, oppositional tendencies, ADHD symptoms, autism spectrum disorders, and the challenges that come with parenting.

Cynthia enjoys reading and spending time with her family and her children. She daydreams about a garden and life out in the country.
