Cindy brings a genuine and empathetic relationship into her work with clients. Her arts-based approach to psychotherapy is based on the belief that creative non-verbal expressions can provide emotional relief and self-awareness into relationships.
Cindy is originally from Taipei, Taiwan and has been in the U.S. Since 2004. Her rich cultural experiences nurture her sensitivity in how the larger culture, spiritual, and family contexts influence our self identity. Through art therapy and talk therapy, she has experience working with a variety of treatment concerns including; depression, anxiety, emotional trauma, sex addiction, anger management, and difficult issues related to our family of origin.
Cindy believes that underneath our relationships, behaviors, and feelings, we yearn for a desire to be heard and understood. In therapy, she provides her clients a safe environment to express, to learn, and to grow in our ability to build authentic relationships with ourselves and with others.
Cindy is a Registered Art Therapist (ATR), certified as a Prepare-Enrich facilitator in pre-marital counseling, and is currently working towards another Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy
