IMG_2034Cindy is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker who has been working in mental health services for over 20 years. She completed her graduate training at Augsburg College, and spent the past 12 years employed in the Behavioral Health Programs at the St. Cloud Hospital and Centracare Health Plaza. Cindy has worked in inpatient and outpatient treatment settings, Clara’s House, and most recently providing outpatient mental health services through the Behavioral Health Clinic.

Through her personal and professional studies in yoga and mindfulness Cindy has worked to incorporate these practices into her mental health practice.  She recently opened her own practice Rising Up, in collaboration with Children’s Therapy Works, to create an environment that incorporates body recovery in conjunction with mental health services.  She is passionate about prevention, and assisting children and families in optimizing their health on every level.

Cindy is also a mother and understands the challenges that come with raising children and balancing personal and professional careers with self-care.  She is excited to begin offering yoga classes for children and families to not only support recovery, but to improve parent/child relationships, general health, and improved connection with self and others.
