Cynthia Buckley LMHC,
Master of Science Psychology Walden University
Bachelor of Science Interdisciplinary Studies: Social Sciences Central Washington University
Cynthia Buckley is a counselor who integrate teaching, therapy, and coaching into her practice with clients. She approaches her work from a philosophy that people are multifaceted human beings who benefit from recovering from mental health issues but also in reaching their highest potential. “My approach is to help you heal from what is holding you back in life so you can accomplish your dreams and fulfill your purpose. When was the last time you thought about your goals and dreams? It can be difficult when you’re just trying to manage your anxiety or overcome a traumatic experience. Most of the time we get in our own way with self-defeating beliefs and lack of self-confidence. It is possible to live an amazing life, but you will have to get comfortable with being uncomfortable and that is the most challenging part of personal growth. I would love to help you overcome your challenges so you can focus on what is truly important in life!”
