Consulting

Every child has her own unique pace of social and emotional development, which is nurtured by her parents and caregivers. However, there are milestones in children’s social and emotional development, which are usually accomplished during specific age ranges.

I am an early childhood mental health consultant currently contracted with South Shore Community Action (Head Start) I am a professional licensed mental health counselor who also has knowledge, and experience related to working with young children (birth to five) and their families.

I have led several workshops ranging in subjects:

  • Bully Free Parent Strategies
  • Developmental Milestones in Children and Adolescents
  • Wellness Seminar (How to promote Self Care)
  • How to Cope with Challenging Behaviors
As an early childhood mental health consultant I promote healthy growth in young children’s social and emotional development by guiding and supporting the caregivers and parent’s in the child’s life to recognize, understand and support social and emotional development. I am able to achieve this by having a firm grasp of social and emotional milestones and I support strategies and am confident and competent in modeling and coaching others to use similar practices. I can help identify and work in partnership with families and caregivers to remediate problems that surface. By understanding the characteristics of development and what is typical for children at different ages, I can help families, caregivers, and teachers nurture each child’s growth. I also assure worried parents that certain behaviors are a normal part of growing up.

Alternatively, I am able to recognize and respond sensitively to any potential concerns regarding a child’s social and emotional development. When problems arise, I am a valuable resource for children and families.

"Cynthia has provided us with a collaborative and supportive environment in which to explore the conflicts in our marriage. Her approach to couples therapy has helped us improve our communication, our understanding of ourselves, and our ability to articulate shared goals for our partnership and how to reach them. Cynthia challenges us without pitting us against one another and without being confrontational. She is gracious, patient, kind, thoughtful and compassionate and her guidance has been invaluable to us."

"My daughter learned how to relax in stressful situations, how to manage her time better, and how to put more effort into creating healthy relationships. You helped her mature and make responsible decisions on her own. Since she has started college, she hasn't had any anxiety and is very successful in her new surroundings. Thank you for helping keep her on track. She loved each and every session with you, and we couldn't be happier with the young adult she's grown to be!"

“You actively listen, an art form in and of itself, but you listen not just for verbal and physical cues, but emotional and spiritual ones as well. Through experience and intuition you seem to know when to grant the space of silence or to press me, not in an aggressive or "I know best" way, but more so as a means of pointing me in the direction of the issues. You provide me with a wonderful perspective, one that is mindful of my goals but also respectful and appreciative of who I am as a person.”
