Hello! My name is Cynthia Ramirez, and I am a Clinical Social Work Supervisee in Virginia.
My work is my passion. Whether you are seeking change or just a listening ear, I am here to help. I strive to provide a safe space for clients to express themselves through empathy, authenticity, and listening without judgment. Collaboration is key to a healthy therapeutic relationship, and you are the expert on your experience. Together we will work towards letting go of painful emotions, unhealthy thinking habits, and behaviors through developing insight and self-awareness to become a better version of yourself. Understand that this journey is not easy and will take time, but we will face life's hurdles as a team.
As a first-generation Dominican-American, I know what it’s like to face the challenges of finding a sense of identity between two cultures, the stigma, and taboo of mental health, as well as the difficulties of navigating barriers and stressors presented throughout the journey of life. I’ve been in your shoes, seeking a therapist in hopes of finding a good fit. Whether it is myself or someone else, I congratulate you for taking this first step.
With over five years of experience providing mental health and advocacy services to individuals of diverse backgrounds, my clinical areas include anxiety, depression, self-esteem, family conflict, and relationship issues. I also support adolescents and young adults as they navigate the demands of school, life transitions, and societal pressures. I have experience using evidence-based practices, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Solution Focused Brief. I welcome you to reach out to discuss how I might be able to support you.
I am currently accepting new clients and can provide counseling services to meet your needs. I also provide sliding scale fee services.
