Cindi Stoneman, MA, LPC - Counselor, Coach
When working with my clients I use a combination of psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral approaches. I offer comprehensive On-Line counseling for adults, adolescents and have worked extensively with anxiety disorders, depression, ADHD, self-confidence issues, loss/grief, and relationship difficulties.
I am experienced in assisting individuals and their families in addressing the many issues surrounding divorce and family re-building. I also work with individuals, couples and/or families around issues of co-parenting. Together we work to learn communication skills and effective ways to deal with the emotional effects in order to lessen the conflicts that interfere with moving forward to a healthy way of living.
By focusing on communication, decision making, and problem solving techniques my clients are able to decrease depressive symptoms, improve relationships and self esteem. I also use behavioral strategies to help clients reduce anxiety and improve organization/time-management skills. Clients can then use these skills and strategies to successfully tackle and overcome obstacles independently.
I specialize in working with the difficulties that are inherent in dealing with serious medical illnesses and end of life issues. This may include parents, children, family members, caregivers or friends involved in the care of a loved one. Each family is considered to be unique and their issues are treated in individual ways.
Therapy is most effective when clients feel comfortable and at ease. I have a down-to-earth approach and am prepared to join my clients in a partnership that will enable them to grow and achieve both personal and professional goals. If you are concerned or struggling with any of these matters or any of life's many challenges, I would appreciate the opportunity to talk with you.
