Cindy L Ricardo, MS, LMHC, CIRT, RYT, Counselor in Coral Springs
Is life feeling challenging to you? Are you struggling in an intimate relationship? If you feel depressed, overwhelmed, anxious or are experiencing relationship conflict, I can help. The truth is that life and relationships can be challenging and sometimes we get caught in patterns of thinking or behaving that create suffering and pain. Let me be your guide out of this painful place. In individual sessions I'll help you clear the negative chatter & judgment enabling you to make healthier choices. I believe therapy is about bringing clarity, balance and joy back into your life.
As a Certified Imago Therapist I believe safety and compassion are essential to help partners move from power struggles into intimate and loving connection. Communicating from the heart (listen, understand & empathize with each other) helps both partners reconnect with joy, intimacy and passion which is the foundation of a healthy relationship.
I also beleive in the body mind, heart connection and use guided imagery & mindfulness exercises to help you bring compassion & understanding to difficult feelings which helps us heal and improve emotional wellbeing. I encourage you to call/email me today. I'll help you create an empowered, balanced & joyful life!
