Cindy Quinn, LMSW
I consider the stories that clients tell me to be a gift. As a therapist it is my intention to give my clients the opportunity to tell me their story in a place where they can be safe, where they are not judged on what they say or what they have done, and where they can begin to explore alternatives, motivations, factors influencing the person, and personal goals. My theoretical orientation is based on an existential approach to therapy. This approach helps clients to examine their values and define their meaning and purpose for living and to increase self-awareness. Human suffering can be turned into human achievement by the stand an individual takes when faced with it. If you feel trapped, helpless, or stuck, therapy can help you get moving again. The therapeutic journey can open up new horizons and help you face life with courage, hope, and purposeful meaning.
