It can be difficult to try and navigate through challenges, but you don’t have to do it alone. As a first generation individual, Cindy brings a unique understanding of how culture and past experiences impact your current selves. Additionally, her educational background and experience working in criminal justice allows her to understand the stressors for those who work or are involved in this field.
Her approach is to create a safe and non-judgmental space to work together to uncover your strengths and resiliency, while allowing your voices and experiences to be heard. This is a step towards working through struggles in a meaningful way and building a positive lifestyle.
She possesses experience in providing individual therapy to adults and teens dealing with, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, trauma, self-esteem issues, anger and work related stress. She utilizes cognitive and mindfulness therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT) and trauma-informed approaches. Everyone is unique and a diversity of approaches helps to tailor the treatment to each individual.
Cindy is currently completing a Master of Psychology with a focus on trauma-informed approach at the Adler Graduate Professional School. She obtained a Bachelor of Science from the University of Toronto Mississauga with a double major in criminology and psychology.
