Client testimonials

Extremely good listener and made me feel comfortable immediately.
— Zencare client (2019)
Cindy is an amazing therapist. She has allowed me to have safe space to explore everything going on in my mind. Within my few years as a client, I have gained a greater depth of understanding for myself. During some extremely rough times when I wasn’t able to see Cindy regularly, she sent me many resources and advice to continue treatment. We have also exchanged books, for me the read and further delve into my psyche. I am a work in progress but Cindy makes me feel worthy and valued as a human being.
