Hi, I'm Lane. I know that looking for a therapist-- finding the right "fit" and someone you can trust--can be a daunting process. Let me tell you a little about my practice, and if you have any questions, please reach out and ask me. Over my 15 years in various forms of clinical practice, I have accumulated a number of techniques for helping folks feel more whole in their daily experience. In terms of first principles, I believe that it's my job to get to know and to honor your truth and endemic wisdom. I'm here to be a compassionate partner in your self-exploration. Honesty, transparency, and trust in our relationship is paramount. I am always interested in hearing your thoughts and feelings about our working relationship. Most times, talking about what's happening in the moment, in our interactions, is therapeutic, and leads to new skills that can be deployed in everyday life. Therapy is a place to learn about and practice being authentic, noticing along the way the places you might have had to curtail your truths to cope in previous situations. Please be aware of a few policies in navigating the Grow Therapy platform: - Please note I only see individuals and groups. I don't currently offer couples therapy. - I am ethically obligated to assess your needs before initiating therapy and telehealth. I ask that you complete the intake form at least 12 hours before our appointment, so I can arrive prepared to meet you in depth. - Therapy services are not officially begun until after we complete a live intake session and you sign my personal informed consent documents, which I will send to you after the live intake appointment is complete. - Please note that I do not monitor the Grow Therapy messenger regularly, and it is not a good way to communicate with me about any urgent or time-sensitive issues. Please use email or call my phone number. - I enjoy seeing teens and young adults for therapy, but I do not see children younger than 13. Legal, court-mandated, and custody issues are not within my scope of practice.

Sometimes, the most profound connections are formed when someone truly listens.I’m Cintia, here not just to hear, but to deeply understand you. In a world where trauma and anxiety often drown out our inner voices, I know that beneath the spoken words, lies a heart’s true narrative. What a degree in Clinical Psychology and a seven-year journey as a therapist has allowed me to is delve deep into the realms of trauma, anxiety, and depression. While these are my primary focuses, I also bring profound insights into PTSD, intricate family dynamics, relationship challenges, and concerns faced by the LGBTQ community.

I have been practicing as a psychotherapist for over 10 years. My Master’s in Social Work focused on Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality and how our different life experiences shape how we navigate our surroundings. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a veteran of the United States Armed Forces, some of my approaches to helping my clients identify their challenges and barriers to their identified problem starts with a person-centered and solution-focused approach to therapy. I recognize a client's right to self-determination, and I want to empower clients I work with to collaboratively come up with their own obtainable short-term and or long-term plans and goals for the present and the future lives they want to live. Let’s further explore together how to use better the tools you’ve been working with and perhaps add additional tools to the toolbox or not.

My goal as a therapist is to make my clients feel seen. Authenticity, language, and empathy are the three tenets in my therapeutic work. Our lived experiences shape the way we interact with others and, as a result, old patterns may resurface. By creating dialogue in the room, my clients and I are able to foster a space for healing work to begin. As a growth-oriented clinician, I value the growth that comes from the therapeutic process and want to help my clients reclaim their power and be the change they wish to experience in their lives.

I have experience working with veterans and their families, and I'm from a law enforcement family. I'm also part of the LGBTQIA+ community. I have been practicing polyvagal theory and it's interventions to address anxiety and depression, as well as bipolar disorder. It's been a critical touchstone in helping clients to conceptualize a healthier way of functioning.

Hi there and great job on taking that first step in considering if therapy is right for you. I invite you to come with me on a journey of your own choosing where we will walk together in darkness to find the light you’ve been seeking. Whether it’s life’s little annoying stressors or more complex issues, as a trauma survivor myself, I know firsthand what this is like and wouldn’t wish it on anyone. Whether you choose me or another therapist, make the choice to just give it a try. Sometimes all you need is another person to hold the light while you do the work you need to heal.
