Why Choose Cynthia as Your Therapist
I am a Board Certified Licensed Mental Health Counselor experienced in Child, Teen, and Adult therapy.  My experience includes working with a wide range of behavioral and emotional issues utilizing cognitive behavioral and solution-focused strategies.  In a supportive and comfortable setting, you will receive a highly personalized approach to address YOUR needs. I am a GREAT problem-solver and I would be honored to guide you in attaining your own personal growth.  
I am nonjudgmental and empathic.  It is very rare for a client to present with an issue I, myself, have not been forced to deal with in my own life.  We are all human.  You should know I am a Gator fan but accepting of FSU fans as well!
  • Cognitive Behavioral and Solution Focused Therapist.  Most issues resolved in 8-10 sessions.
  • I do not specialize in clients with YOUR problem.  Everyone is different.  Treatment is INDIVIDUALIZED not STANDARDIZED.
  • As a mother of three grown children, I do not "Pathologize" children.  The problem is the problem, not the child.
  • 85% of successful change can be attributed to the relationship between counselor and client.  If you do not feel supported and understood by me, I am NOT the right therapist for you.
  • Licensed and Board Certified Mental Health Counselor
  • Florida Qualified Supervisor
  • Distinguished Graduate Webster University in STL
  • Master Degree in Mental Health Counseling

So What is Holding You Back?
Is it fear of facing your emotions?  Do you feel embarrassed?  Have you been told not to "air your dirty laundry?" Hesitant to tell someone else your deepest, darkest secrets?  Do you think admitting you could use some help makes you look or feel weak?  Don't want to cry in front of others?  You are right.  Seeking counseling takes COURAGE.  Less than 1/3 of people experiencing emotional distress seek treatment.  Don't be one of them.  Each day is a fresh start.  Let your's be today.  As Collin Raye said:
"I laugh, I love, I hope, I try, I hurt, I need, I fear, I cry.
And you know you do the same things too.  So we're really not that different, me and you."
