My name is Cindy, a Licensed Master Social Worker, and Atlanta has been my forever home for nearly a decade. I am a double Panther Alumni, having graduated with my Bachelor degree in Social Work and continuing with a Master in Social Work from Georgia State University, Andrew Young School of Policy.
Prior to become a mental health specialist, I used to be an avid advocate for children’s mental health, working towards providing free mental health services in public schools, and I continue to fulfill that passion with the work I do today.
Although clinical social work was nowhere on my radar, starting my own therapeutic journey has given me the skills to process my thoughts and feelings while also making large life transitions.
Having lived this experience, I understand some of the thoughts, questions, doubts you may have. If you are seeking services to address specific issues like anxiety, depression, burn-out or just need someone who will listen therapy might be the answer for you.
My therapeutic approach is collaborative, supportive, and flexible. As your therapist, I would help support and guide you to lay new foundations in your life, whether it be coping skills or increased self-esteem, to start new transitions in life or finally address the past.
I have experience using various modalities to address an array of challenges that children, youth, and adults may be struggling with and would love to join you on your journey to a healthier you.
