Cindy is a Certified Trainer in the Nurtured Heart Approach.  This approach focuses on helping families with intense, ADD, oppositional children.  The focus of the approach is to help parents become the parent their child needs.

Finally, after years of working in a secular environment, Cindy is blessed to be able to use a Christian perspective with clients.  Her focus is on drawing out individual strengths as well as nurturing the spiritual dimension of life.  She finds this technique to be especially helpful with people affected with anxiety and depression.
