“how did that make you feel”?
Not at all! Cynthia views the therapeutic process as collaborative and interactive. Over and over, clients have told Cynthia that she is unlike any other therapist they have seen. She will provide feedback; identify the source of patterns, teach coping skills, and give “homework” to practice each week.
What services do we provide?
Cynthia treats a wide variety of issues but specializes in identifying and changing personal patterns that have kept people making the same choices over and over. She also helps people with anxiety, nervousness, depression, grief, and divorce recovery, marital issues, help with communication, and teach parenting, abandonment, anger issues, PTSD, any sort of trauma, and esteem issues, just to name a few. She also works with people who are just stressed out and need a place to sort things out. In addition, Cynthia works with kids who are having behavioral or emotional issues at home or in school and helps the elderly adjust to the aging process.
What methods does Cynthia use?
Cynthia uses an eclectic approach to healing. She has a wide variety of experience in using different forms of healing and has gained a lot of knowledge in the process of healing herself. She primarily uses CBT, EMDR and teaches self-empowerment in her practice. The client’s individual needs and desires will determine the approach that she uses.
What can I do to support the therapeutic process?
Cynthia routinely gives “homework” so practicing the homework will make the healing go much faster. She also gives out books to read so the client has a better understanding on the topic being addressed. If you are a family member of someone in therapy, give him or her the space to sort through his or her “baggage”. It will take pressure off of the person in therapy to conform or people please.
How long will therapy take?
There is no set answer. This is not the usual therapy that is done for a few months and then the person slowly reverts back to his or her old ways. Because she works on a deeper level than most other therapists, by identifying the source of issues (or patterns) and then bringing about change, the healing is permanent. The length of time depends on what the presenting issue is and how fast or slow an individual works. However, all clients report an improvement in how they feel within one or two weeks of starting therapy.
