Hi, I’m Cynthia. Welcome to Desert Somatics & Psychotherapy. In this practice, I endeavor to create a safe, healing space for people to work with the most vulnerable parts of themselves. When you are facing anxiety, depression, burnout, overwhelm, grief and loss, or the residual effects of traumatic situations or experiences, it can feel insurmountable. My passion is helping people to take the big, scary events, feelings, thoughts, and life experiences they are facing and to break them down into manageable pieces we can work through together. In so doing, we find that healing and repair are possible.

I help my clients to discover (or rediscover) themselves in meaningful ways. The tools are sometimes out-of-the-box (maybe a tarot card will help you work through that difficult thought process or better understand that dysfunctional relationship), evidenced-based, and always collaborative. We’ll laugh. You’ll probably cry – but you’ll definitely feel better.

People grieve for lots of things aside from an actual death. Sometimes the process of grieving or adapting to change can be overwhelming and exhausting. We are most especially challenged when things happen to us that we do not choose or are out of our control. Sometimes these circumstances lead to high anxiety, depression and coping choices that may hurt us. This is when we lose sight of who we are, where our strength lies, and may have a hard time just trying to live our daily lives. This is when we need some gentle, clear, skillful support and guidance.

We all encounter problems at different stages in life. Some are easy to handle, whereas others leave us hurt, confused, and hopeless. Our brain is an important organ, and it can get sick, just like any of the other organs in our body. What it takes to heal differs between person to person. We will never pretend we know exactly what you are going through, because we aren't you. But, what we can do is help! Being licensed in both Missouri and Arizona allows us to reach out to help even more people. Whether you are looking to move forward from the past, learn to live with loss, handle stress and anxiety/depression better, we can help!

One of the most crucial parts of the therapeutic process is connection. Having a space where you feel understood and not judged is foundational, especially in these times. We all have a unique history and journey- no two experiences are alike. I incorporate both an INDIVIDUALIZED and WHOLISTIC approach to therapy, geared towards considering the whole person, identifying how each part affects and influences the other. We will work on clearly identifing goals and measuring your progress. Together we can do this by practicing the principle of HOPE, as I believe almost everything in life is "figure-out-able."
