  • Cynthia Good, MS, LMHC

    Cynthia is a licensed mental health counselor who works with individual adults. She understands that the reproductive and parenting years can pose unique challenges, as well as offer unique opportunities for personal growth. Symptoms of depression, anxiety, grief, and trauma may be experienced for the first time or may rise up again from years ago. Support may be needed for the learning curve involved in parenting children in challenging contexts. Our hearts and minds may be called to learn, grow, and heal in ways that we couldn’t do earlier in life. And the stories that we were handed down about who we are may need to be re-written so that we can live our lives as whole people. No one was meant to go through these journeys alone, and we may need more support than family members or friends can offer. Still—even during our greatest struggles—each person has strengths and solutions within them.

    Cynthia is a psychotherapist utilizing psychodynamic approaches—primarily ego state therapy (EST) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). She is a nationally and internationally Certified EST Therapist, as well as a registered hypnotherapist, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, and PMH-C Certified Perinatal Mental Health Professional. She is also trained in the evidence-based Flash Technique, a therapeutic intervention that supports the processing of distress using EMDR. She specializes in working with individuals coping with challenges during their reproductive and parenting years, including issues related to:

    • Infertility and family planning
    • Pregnancy loss (e.g., abortion, miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, termination for medical reasons [TFMR], selective reduction, stillbirth)
    • Infant death
    • Prenatal and postpartum depression and anxiety
    • Loss and grief
    • Trauma (e.g., traumatic birth, sexual assault, developmental trauma)
    • Emotional challenges related to lactation
    • Healing from relationship trauma
    • Parenting dynamics, including children with special needs, medical challenges, giftedness, neurodiversity, parenting while facing social injustice, adoption, single parenting, parenting multiples, and parenting within a multicultural context

    Cynthia has lived biculturally and bilingually (English and Farsi) for over 30 years. Her experience with cross-cultural living, therapy, and research allows her to work respectfully and effectively with people who have various cultural, ethnic, and racial backgrounds; sexual orientations; gender identities and expressions; abilities; sizes; beliefs; and life circumstances. She is passionate about social justice, including providing support during psychotherapy to understand, counter, and heal the impact of intersecting systems of privilege/oppression on pregnancy, birth, parenting, and mental health. Cynthia uses her extensive training in a variety of therapeutic modalities to work collaboratively and holistically with her clients. She strives to create a safe space in which clients can harness hope and their inherent ability to heal and grow so that they can move toward creating lives characterized by meaning and well-being. It is her honor to walk alongside her clients on their healing journeys.
