About Me

Cyndi is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), graduated from Syracuse University, Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics, Syracuse, NY. Originally licensed in New York State then moving to Virginia, Cyndi has over 17 years of direct social work and mental health counseling experience as well as a vast knowledge in the human service field.


FAQs

I think to pinpoint one experience with a client is difficult as there have been “breakthroughs” with clients through my years in practice; to watch a client grow, experience a healthier life, be able to function within their home, family and community. To be able to manage their emotions and not have their emotions or other people's behaviors or their own traumas control them is the biggest breakthrough that I will ever have.

A team effort, working collaboratively together towards a common goal set by the client; to have healthier life and relationships. An open and honest relationship that offers communication, support, empathy, but also tough love when appropriate.

First sessions are for information gathering, answering questions, getting to know each other, hearing the client's story and ensuring safety.

To be able to support people to have healthier lives; recognize that they are important no matter what they do, that we all make unhealthy choices, but that doesn’t determine our path in life.

Highlights

    What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

    Cyndi’s passion is to work with individuals, one on one and in groups, as well as their support systems, all with the goal of living healthier lives. I feel it's essential to success in counseling to build a consistent, strong support team around my client. I have worked within the community and with various human service organizations, which has provided me invaluable experience helping clients overcome a wide array of challenges.

     

    What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

    I work with a person-centered approach to assist and support individuals in creating healthier life choices. I aim to assist families and their support systems, and understand their unique challenges, all to better support my client. Within individual therapy, I integrate healthy coping skills, communication, healthy lifestyle choices, as well as EMDR.

     

    Explain to clients what you feel are your biggest strengths.
