“I started to go to Cindy about a year and a half ago, and I cannot adequately express how much she has been able to help me in that time. Her patience, understanding, and guidance have been invaluable to me in improving my mental health and my overall approach to just about every situation I encounter. She has helped me grow out of my negative thinking and has assisted me in establishing a strong base of self-confidence and a healthy outlook on life. She is not only a great counselor, but she is an incredible person as well. Cindy is a very easy person to talk to and open up to, which is a key factor in getting to the root of issues in order to deal with them. I would not be where I am today if not for her help, and where I am today is a MUCH better place than before I met her. I will be forever grateful for the way she assisted me in improving my life.”
