At Balanced Life Therapy, my goal is to provide skills and tools for you to live a more abundant life. Emotionally, physically, and spiritually. My approach is evidence based techniques such as Dr. Gottman's 7 Principals for Making Marriage Work, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP) to create a plan and supports custom to your needs and desires. If you are seeking to manage your mood, relationships, drug/alcohol abuse, stress or anxiety, communicating with others, or work/life balance, I am an accomplished and compassionate resource.

I am a trained Educator in Dr. John Gottman's "7 Principles for Making Marriage Work" supporting couples to enhance or repair their marriage. I also am trained in Mindfulness Based Relapse Prevention, substance abuse, negative thinking patterns, decreased motivation, anxiety, depression, and communicating with others.

I am a member of the College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers of Ontario. I have obtained additional training in: Gottman 7 Principles (marriage counselling), the Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training, screening for domestic violence, New Ways for Families, family mediation, & with BECKS Institute for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

Cindy McAfee's Groups

A Women's Worth

This is an ongoing group whose primary focus is to explore how we can bring ourselves more fully into relationships. We operate on the premise that awareness of self and others is fundamental to the development of healthy interpersonal interactions. We can enhance our understanding of what drives us and what holds us back in relationships. We can let go of unhealthy patterns in thoughts and relationships which can keep us from engaging in a healthy, connected way. We can safely explore ways to communicate openly and honestly; learning to manage interpersonal boundaries and to understand our own personal power.
