Cyndi is one of our longest employees at DCFOF! She is a Licensed Professional Counselor who has a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology from Texas Woman's University. Cyndi started working with Friends of the Family as a counseling intern in 2005 and became a staff counselor in 2006.
Over the last thirteen years, Cyndi has taken on many roles at the agency, including BIPP (Battering Intervention and Prevention) Counselor, Crisis Line Coordinator, Shelter Director, Shelter Counselor, and Adult Counselor at our Outreach office in Corinth. Cyndi has a passion for working with victims/survivors, often helping with our Survivors Advocacy Team by providing accompaniment to sexual assault victims in local emergency rooms. Cyndi provides counseling for individual and group clients, and supervises many of our graduate counseling interns from local universities. Cyndi loves working with the amazing clients at DCFOF because she is inspired by their incredible strength and resilience. Cyndi believes her clients already possess within themselves the strength and resourcefulness to achieve their goals, and counseling offers them a safe space in which to explore and heal so that they can create for themselves the lives they wish to lead.
The clients and interns at DCFOF have great things to say about Cyndi: “I feel a sense of relief that I no longer have to live in the horrible environment I have been in for the past 15 years, and that is thanks to DCFOF and Cyndi”
“I feel better knowing that I am not alone and that there are services available to help me. I wish I had come to Cyndi sooner.”
“Cyndi really cares and has been a great role model of how to provide compassionate care to clients”
We are so grateful to Cyndi for all her years of service to the agency and the many lives
she has impacted along the way!
