About Cindy

I am a process-oriented therapist who welcomes people of diverse identities. If you feel depressed or anxious, are having difficulties in relationships, or want to take the next step in your personal growth, I can help you develop awareness and compassion for yourself and others. Anxiety, depression, trauma and loss are parts of life many people struggle with. Therapy can help you start to process and resolve conflicts, reduce worries and make sense of complex, long-standing or difficult issues. In my work with individuals and relationships, I take a sex-positive approach to the struggles and problems you are facing. Whether you are single, partnered, married, polyamorous or in an open relationship, I believe you can improve your relationships, discover what is right for you, make changes to your life and develop a deeper understanding of yourself and others. Each of us is unique. We access and express deep feelings and discover the wisdom to move through difficulties to joy and satisfaction in many ways. So, I use many approaches — including movement, sketching, dreams, humor, body symptoms, momentary perceptions, role play, meditation and dialog — to help you open and unfold your experiences, discover new insights and ways of being as well as find the hidden but important value of everyday struggles and problems. Psychotherapy is one way to learn, to grow and to bring more awareness to your day-to-day life — which can be an adventure full of blessings, experimentation and learning when you find the right attitudes and skills to move forward.Write a short about paragraph for your profile.
