She has worked mostly in community-based settings which includes an individual’s home. She has also worked many years in a Supervisor role performing a variety of administrative tasks and responsibilities, but recently had a desire to return back to a more clinical role working one-to-one with individuals.
Cindy feels rapport and transparency with individuals are key and important to building and maintaining the therapeutic relationship as it will facilitate trust and comfort. Her focus is person-centered by supporting individuals in identifying their life goals, being a strong advocate and “cheerleader” in helping to reach those goals. She also likes to focus on confidence and coping strategies to tackle the day to day life stressors. She utilizes a variety of therapies including supportive, solution-focused, strength-based and CBT.
