I work a lot with teenagers and young adults, and have worked with them in a mentoring program for 12 years before getting my degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I also have a special connection with the homeschool community as I homeschooled my boys. I love working with families and helping parents and teens communicate. I work with anxiety, depression, grief and anger management (among other things).

Working through difficult times makes us, and our relationships, stronger. Making the decision to begin therapy isn't always easy, but sometimes it's just what you need to get your life back on track. Despite the stereotype of a therapist being someone who will, "tell you what to do," my role is to listen and help you toward hearing your own answers. It can offer you insight and perspective so you can achieve what you are striving for in your life. Together, we can explore what is getting in the way of you living a happier life.

We live in a time where many of the emotions that make us uniquely human have increasingly become labeled as "disordered." Different ways of thinking and feeling that do not fit societal norms are often pathologized rather than valued. Common experiences, such as anxiety around relationships or sadness over loss, are treated as illnesses rather than natural reactions to difficult events that, when explored with respect, often lead to profound growth and creativity. I see psychotherapy less as a way to learn how to "become normal" and more as a journey that invites you to live more fully by embracing all that makes us human.

Hello there, my name is Cynthia Haynes and I am a firm believer and advocate of "THE SINCLAIR METHOD" (TSM) The Sinclair Method progressively reverses your addiction through pharmacological extinction! You see, there is a cure for alcohol addiction. Alcohol addiction is learned and can be removed by blocking reinforcement from endorphins in the brain each time that alcohol is consumed. With years of alcohol consumption, the brain reinforces pathways producing behaviors that become permanently hard-wired causing addiction to alcohol, never going dormant or disappearing- which is why it is hard for alcoholics to maintain abstinence.

Life can be an overwhelming experience for anyone. Things can become especially challenging when a person feels stressed by circumstances beyond their control. Individuals who come to therapy are often very capable human beings who have experienced something in their life that has left them needing some extra support. Many times people begin therapy feeling down and lost. Through a person's work in therapy, they are often able to find some light on their path to help guide them through the pain. This shift creates an opportunity for a person to improve their day-to-day functioning and overall, they FEEL BETTER!!

Having trouble with your teenager? Does your adolescent feel unmotivated, depressed, hopeless, anxious, or in need of greater self-confidence? Is your family experiencing a transition, loss, or other forms of trauma or uncertainty? Psychotherapy can help develop understanding, insight, and gain skills. As a licensed psychotherapist, I will support you and your child toward your goal of improving your well-being. Teens' needs are different from those of adults; they are still developing, and coping with the internal and external changes. I have nearly a decade of experience working with teens with severe emotional disturbance and their families.

I enjoy helping clients better understand themselves so they can make a more informed choice about how they wish to move through the world. This is best achieved when a client feels safe, heard and not judged, so that is the essence of what I try to provide to all clients right away - a safe and relaxing space to be listened to with empathy and concern. Trauma and emotional pain can be difficult to deal with, and it’s a privilege to be able to support you as quickly as possible, with evening and weekend availability and two office locations for greater scheduling ease.

The benefit of therapy is that one can gain self-understanding, as well as a better understanding of other people. When a person tends to view the world from a negative perspective, without being aware of the source of these negative views, a belief begins to grow that the world and the components of daily-life experiences are negative. The same can be said for events that provoke anxiety, as well as for individual experiences of trauma. Holding these types of thoughts without processing them tends to skew our views on reality and lead to errors in thinking, such as generalizations about how the world should be.
