My personal experience and counseling others have allowed me to successfully help others struggling to cope with chronic illnesses and anxiety. In particular, I have counseled children and teens to understand their emotions and thrive. I use a variety of techniques, including CBT, for dealing with anxiety. Emotion recognition, play therapy and the Positive Parenting model, are my essential tools for helping children with behavioral disorders and their supportive families. I can help you with the challenges and frustrations that occur with chronic illness, anxiety, or other emotional struggles, so you can achieve a healthier, more positive life.
Cindy is a licensed professional counselor and a board-certified art therapist in private practice in Longmont, CO. She works with adults facing a range of challenges, including trauma, body image/self-esteem, grief, anxiety, compassion fatigue, and physical illness. She works with clients using both verbal psychotherapy and non-verbal methods (art therapy, photography, and writing). Clients she has worked with have found art-making, such as collage, painting, drawing, poetry, as well as photography, productive methods to reduce stress, promote self-awareness, and gain insights about themselves. She combines elements from several therapeutic traditions, including a mindfulness framework, which can be helpful for so many of us with racing minds and persistent unhelpful thoughts, and she also has a deep interest in sharing an existentialist perspective, so clients will explore how they make meaning in their lives, and how they may do so in the future in a way that is consistent with their core values.
