Cindy has had wide experience with people of all ages, beginning her career in teaching and directing Children’s Ministry in a large church. She was drawn to therapy in order to more effectively counsel parents and children in times of transition, challenge and loss and be equipped to teach parent education classes. Due to her experience as a therapist, her role evolved to directing Congregational Care and shifted her primary ministry to older adults. In this role she facilitated grief support and memory loss caregiver groups as well as supporting and counseling individuals and families in planning for, accepting and responding to transitions and challenges, including end-of-life.
Now retired from ministry, Cindy continues to provide counseling, feeling particularly called to serve older adults, couples, parents and anyone seeking a faith and strength-based approach.
She has experience with PREPARE|ENRICH communication/relationship skills; parenting skills; Discernment Counseling for couples considering divorce; end-of-life planning; grief and loss; and Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), a very focused eye movement therapy that can quickly help address common problems such as depression, anxiety, phobias, and PTSD.
Cindy approaches therapy from a faith-based, strength-based, holistic view and considers it a privilege to hear your story and to collaborate with you to identify, accept and encourage possible steps toward a more peaceful and satisfying life and relationships.
Cindy loves the outdoors and enjoys time with her family and friends, biking, hiking, cooking, travel, reading and music of all kinds.
