Hi! So glad you're here. When we go through difficult times in our lives, it’s often our first instinct to want to escape… whether through temporary “feel goods” of our choice, by doing our best to stay busy enough to take our minds off of things, or by descending into destructive, dark thought patterns, just to name a few. It’s so important to to recognize these patterns and learn to approach difficulties differently without feeling the need to escape. When you’re empowered with belief in yourself… that you CAN and WILL make it through the tough times as you have before… It’s like a switch flips. The difficulties may not have changed, but YOU have. It's my mission and honor to walk with you through this journey.

Hi! I'm Cindy, and I'm a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor. After spending several years working for community mental health agencies, in 2021 I opened my practice, Paths to Healing and Wellness, PLLC. I provide telehealth throughout the state of Florida. We all have times in our lives when we need someone who is compassionate and who will listen without judgment. Life is challenging, and you know that it can be better. You may feel alone and stuck, and you just can't seem to move forward. Trauma, grief, anxiety, and other life changes and challenges might be preventing you from living your best life. Therapy can give you tools to navigate life’s many challenges. It can provide a safe space where you can process the past and let go of what no longer serves a purpose. Therapy can teach you coping skills to manage whatever life throws your way, both now and well into the future. Learning, growing, and thriving despite your life challenges will likely be an outcome of therapy. I see therapy as a journey, and each person’s journey is unique. In my work with you, I'll draw from a variety of evidence-based practices, but I'll also tailor my approach to your individual needs. My most important goal as we work together is to create a safe, welcoming, and non-judgmental space for you. Deciding to begin therapy is a healthy first step toward improving your life and reaching your goals. Together, we can begin this journey that will lead to creating a life you love, because you deserve nothing less. Learn more at pathstohealingandwellness.com.
