“Even as a tree is cut down to a stump, new sprouts from the roots still rise up,” Cindy says. “I believe that everything in this world is constantly trying to be the best expression of itself.”  She provides support, empathy, and acceptance for clients who worry about whether they’re queer enough, how to connect or grow in their relationships, and how to be their authentic selves.

Cindy has expertise in supporting a variety of relationship configurations, including ethical nonmonagamous connections or couples with a newly transitioning partner. She thrives on supporting individuals in their relationships as well, including the coming out process, partners of a transitioning individual, those who worry they’re on the brink of a breakup, and people who feel stress about their sex drive or sexual fantasies. Cindy has a knack for supporting people who have identified patterns, and want to untangle a history of “picking partners who ___.”

Her clients appreciate her strength in challenging them supportively, helping them grow into that best version of self with flexibility, thoughtfulness, and humor. Cindy is ideal for clients who want to experience deep processing, uncover their own meaning, and gain security in their corner of the world. She knows the therapeutic alliance is a real relationship that clients can use to grow confident and strong in their relationships.
