Cynthia's mission is to facilitate emotional and spiritual healing the world-over by making people aware of common behavioral patterns that actually create personal hardship and by providing simple, easy and effective solutions for life's daily struggles. When implemented, these solutions are guaranteed to improve everyone's quality of life. To further her mission, Cynthia is currently writing a book and speaks to groups, sharing with participants how to identify personal patterns that create difficulties and show them, step-by-step, how to implement solutions that will enable them to take charge of their lives allowing them the freedom to routinely make choices that work for rather than work against them.
