About Me

I have worked with people all of my working life. As a therapist I have worked all populations, mandated clients inmates, both male and females, even adolescent aged juvenile delinquent. I have worked in prisons max levels to mediums. I have worked in residential care for juveniles to outpatient care for children. I recently have retired from the State of New York putting 30 plus years behind to work on-call as a psychiatric on call evaluator in the emergency room, and a therapist for a local family medical center seeing nearby college adults.

I have worked with many people with a wide range of concerns and struggles, from Mental Health issues like Bipolar disorder, to PTSD and Trauma issues, Coping Anxiety issues, Attachment and Abandonment problems, ADHD, Loss, Grief, Schizophrenia, Abuse, Self-Injury, Self-Esteem, Parenting, Relationships, Anger, Personality Disorders, Neurodevelopmental Disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorders, OCD and Depression.

I do not care for labels, and I do believe in treating everyone as they treat me with respect and professionalism and compassion. I use a Cognitive Behavioral approach and tailor your Treatment need that is unique to each client. I use an emotional Support Pet named Moe Bailey ( as long as everyone is not Allergic-Lol! ha ha it's virtual) I use humor lots! It makes seeing a therapist fun.

Written by J.O. on Apr 12, 2021 after counseling with Cynthia for 3 weeks

Since working with Cynthia my daughter has gained a better understanding of her own behaviours and is happier to make decisions knowing that they might not be the right ones but that this is ok and part of life! She’s happier in herself and appears more confident too.

Written by A.L. on Mar 15, 2021 after counseling with Cynthia for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

Cynthia was instrumental in helping me overcome issues with my anxiety. She creates a calm environment and understood how to best assist me in helping myself overcome issues I was having with anxiety and depression. I would highly recommend to anyone going through similar issues and would also be happy to work with her again if I felt I needed to.
