It can be difficult to open up to a stranger about personal difficulties, but I truly believe in each person's ability to make positive changes. This is why I strive to create a calm, warm, welcoming, and non-judging environment where you can feel comfortable working through your thoughts and emotions.

 

I enjoy providing individual and family counseling for children, adolescents, adults and geriatrics. I specialize in Anxiety and Stress, Communication Barriers, Depression, Grief and Loss, Parent/Family Issues, Trauma, and Career Issues.

 

Therapeutic modalities:

I typically practice from a Cognitive-Behavioral lens and truly believe that our thoughts impact and influence how we feel, which, in turn, affects our actions and our self-esteem. Cultivating a strong relationship with yourself is the foundation for everything in our lives, including relationships with those around us. If we are not connected and emotionally available to ourselves, we cannot be connected and emotionally available for others around us. It is my goal to provide you with the tools to feel empowered in making those positive behavioral changes in your life that you desire. In doing this, I also incorporate Client Centered Therapy, Psychoeducation, Strengths Based Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy.

Cindy Robinson

MSW, University of Oklahoma, 2011 

BSW, Southwestern State University, 2006

I have a passion for helping women and girls overcome anxiety and trauma. I will meet you where you are when life feels overwhelming and unmanageable and I will help walk with you to a place of greater peace. The stressful situation often looks different for each person but commonly includes: relational difficulties, hard life adjustments, adoption and infertility issues, and trauma. The process is tailored to each individual and is primarily based in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Attachment Theory, and Solution Focused Therapy (SFT). I'm trained in two trauma specific therapies: Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) and Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT).

 

I have worked in and worked closely with churches and other ministries throughout my career. As a graduate of Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (MBTS), I'm equipped and skilled at integrating faith with core counseling principles. I also have experience working with foster and adoptive families equipping parents to navigate issues specific to fostering and adoption.

 

I'm a proud East Central University Tiger and received my undergraduate degree in Communication Studies with a minor in Counseling. My Masters degree from MBTS is in Counseling. I began practicing in 2015 and have been in both agency and private practice settings.

Brian has been a Licensed Professional Counselor since 2004. He began working with children and adolescents in an inpatient hospital setting and has also worked in a partial hospitalization setting, school settings and practiced home-based therapy. He has a family of five, and is an active member in his church where he is a deacon, Sunday School tracher, and member of the Youth Committee Board. He enjoys listening to audio books, podcasts, teaching and playing board games with friends.

 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Behavioral Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy are what I most commonly practice as well as utilizing Narrative Therapy and PlayTherapy tehniques within the individual sessions. I also practice Family Therapy Techniques and Group Therapy sessions. My Conceptualization of the therapy session can be summarized by the following two quotes.

 

"The real enemies of your lives are the "oughts" and "ifs." They pull us backward into the unalterable past and forward into the unpredictable future."  Henn Nouwan 

 

"Know that you are always, already forgiven." Rev. Landons Whitsitt 

 

These quotes illustrate the type of atmosphere I encourage in the therapy session as I appreciate that you are making an effort to change, and that takes courage. Recognize that you and I mess up, even frequently, but it's okay to embrace our faults, take responsibility and make changes while we learn from our mistakes. There are also circumstances that impact us suddenly and demonstrably that are comeletely our of our control. I value the opportunity to join alongside you on a collaborative journey where we navigate through the difficult situations that have arisen and will no longer be left unchallenged in our lives.
