About Cynthia


My name is Cynthia and I am a Licensed Social Worker in the state of Illinois. I have experience in and enjoy working with a variety of age groups across the lifespan. I look forward to establishing a healthy and safe space to help you work on yourself. I’d like for you to view our therapy sessions as an opportunity for you to release stress and any thoughts you may have acquired overtime. My approach in therapy is directed to be a strength-based, client-centered approach utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). I look forward to creating an individual and tailored approach to meet your needs.
