Cindy’s personal life experiences allowed her the opportunity of growing through painful situations. She realized the benefits of counseling and group settings. It is her desire to give that same hope to others who struggle with painful life situations.
She sees the importance of clinically sound counseling with faith based insights. Her personal belief system sees Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Her theme verse is Romans 12:2 which states that we are not to be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our minds, so that we can know the will of God, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

Her specific areas of experience are: anxiety, depression and sexual abuse. Cindy also addresses client compulsion and addiction issues. Some of these include: alcohol, anger, eating disorders, relational boundaries and sexual addiction.
Cindy is a motivated therapist. She encourages her clients to see counseling as an investment in personal growth. She also reminds clients that she does her best to “work herself out of a job”, but she lets them determine when that is done.
Cindy and her husband, DuWayne, have three amazing married children and their awesome spouses! They also have three adventurous grand sons and two adorable grand daughters!
