Cindy is passionate about working with individuals who live with chronic pain and illness.

She has a special heart for those who struggle with weight loss as she has successfully lost over 200 pounds. She deeply understands this journey and that of chronic pain, both professionally and personally. She is well versed in working with individuals who suffer with depression, anxiety, and trauma (physical/sexual/accident-crisis) related issues.


Cindy accepted Jesus Christ as her Savior at age 7. Through various losses, trauma, and pain, she developed a deep walk with the Lord and now helps to foster this in others. Cindy is happily married to James who is an Eastern Shore native. James and Cindy actively serve in their local church.

Cindy approaches counseling from a cognitive behavioral and family systems approach. She merges medical and behavioral models with Biblically based counseling to bring an opportunity for the Lord to bring true wholeness. She aims to equip and empower people to walk in their God given purpose and to be free from the weight that weighs them down from experiencing the fullness of life.
