My husband and I started working with Cynthia because we needed to learn how to have peaceful resolutions to our very upsetting conflicts with our daughter and help her manage her anger. We worked with Cynthia privately for six months, and the greatest benefit of our work together was that we took time to reflect on our conflicts and analyze their sources so we could better understand and implement effective solutions.
While working with us, Cynthia would draw upon her experiences with other parents and would often propose unique solutions based on our specific needs. We worked together as a team. When it became clear that we needed a specialist for our daughter, Cynthia was able to incorporate the specialist’s advice as well, thereby creating even more impactful solutions for us.
Our weekly meetings with Cynthia were so invaluable because they gave us a chance to reflect on the struggles of the past week, where things went well, and where they could’ve gone better. This reflection process was done in a nonjudgmental way, which allowed us to be honest with ourselves and find true insight into the situation. Our focus was always on moving forward, learning from past mistakes, and feeling hopeful. The more we understood ourselves and our daughter, the more confidently we could make positive progress and create a more harmonious home. We still have challenges, of course, and occasionally our old patterns emerge. However, we now recognize them and can get ourselves back on track with being resourceful, connected, and proud of our parenting approach with all of our children. Thank you so much, Cynthia, for all of your guidance and advice in helping us to navigate our challenges. Your insight was invaluable, and we are both much better parents after working with you.
