  • Your unique journey toward healing and wellness begins with your first step.

    Online  therapy in  NC and  FL  for  coping  with  life’s  changes  and  challenges

    You don’t have to face it alone.

    Lately you’ve found yourself wondering:  How can life be this difficult and hurt this much?

    You may be skilled at taking care of others, yet you rarely make space for your own needs. At times you’ve felt like an imposter — keeping up a facade of being accomplished, strong, and confident, but struggling on the inside.

    Perhaps you’ve built a stellar reputation at work, but everything in your personal life feels like a mess. Or you’re having intrusive thoughts about something that happened in the past, and it seems that none of your coping tools can keep them at bay.

    For a while now, you’ve been feeling stuck and overwhelmed, yearning to begin living the life you were hoping for.

    You may be facing challenges like these:

    • Stress and anxiety
    • Depression, extreme fatigue, and lack of energy or motivation
    • Feeling sad, hopeless, or worthless
    • Grief emotions surrounding a loss (processing bereavement related to the death of a loved one, or other types of loss such as the end of a relationship)
    • Problems with letting go of the past
    • Experiencing trauma triggers or PTSD symptoms
    • Difficulty navigating a new life change or obstacle

    When it all feels too overwhelming to navigate alone, online therapy can help.

    Deciding you are ready to begin therapy is a healthy first step toward creating positive change in your life . . .

    I see therapy as a journey, and your journey toward improving your life will be unlike anyone else’s. It can be a complex and tricky path to follow, and it may not lead to your goals as quickly as you would like. There may be hills to climb, and the terrain will be rocky and uneven at times. This is all a normal part of the path to psychological wellness.

    Many of my new clients tell me that they’ve been in therapy before, but now they are looking for more than just short-term techniques and coping skills — they are ready to go deeper and begin working on the root cause of their difficulties. With me, therapy is a collaborative process, working together to meet your goals and making course adjustments as we go. I bring knowledge about counseling and human behavior to our work, but you are the expert on your life, and you will be the one to decide where your therapeutic journey takes you.

    In the therapy process, you may slip back a few steps before moving forward again, but you will also discover that those “backwards” steps can also lead to insights and offer important life lessons . . . and these unexpected pauses may even give you the strength to move ahead again and continue on your journey.

    I would welcome the chance to accompany you as an experienced guide and companion while you work toward achieving long-lasting, healthy change and reaching your goals. My priority is to create a safe, accepting, and welcoming space for this work so that you can begin moving forward. We will proceed at a pace that feels comfortable to you.

    During your first few sessions, we will talk about your goals and what you would like to gain from therapy. Since each person is unique, I will draw from various evidence-based practices in my work with you, but most importantly, I will tailor my approach to meet your specific needs and goals.

    As we work together, your goals may include:

    • Integrating skills to cope with stress and change
    • Coming to terms with grief and loss
    • Healing from trauma
    • Improving your mood
    • Gaining compassion for yourself
    • Identifying your own unique goals that depend on your life circumstances

    Over time, our therapeutic work will provide opportunities to better understand your emotions, to improve self-esteem, to get clear about your life goals, and to develop tools to help you grow and thrive — not only now but in the years ahead.

    Hi! I’m Cindy (She/Her/Hers).

    During my years in the mental health profession, clients I’ve known have described me as warm, easy-going, direct when it’s beneficial, down-to-earth, and fun. My own life challenges have given me insight and increased my capacity to accompany others as they navigate the stressors and challenges they face. I know from personal experience how difficult it can be to begin a healing journey, so I have so much respect for others who do the same. I genuinely love my work and am grateful to be able to accompany others on their journeys.
