Author, Practice Owner, Course Designer, Business Coach, Podcaster, Keynote Speaker
Cyndi is a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor in Texas and a Nationally Board Certified Counselor (NCC). She is a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator for the programs created by Dr. Brené Brown including The Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™.
Cyndi embodies the motto Show Up, Be Seen, Live Brave™ by continually stepping outside her zone of comfort. She shifted her life in 2014 when she was faced with the reality of either never trying a single one of her "crazy" ideas from her "Big Idea Fairy" (B.I.F.) or living life a little scared and trying. She now uses fear as an indicator that something is meaningful and worth trying rather than running away. #fearismylovelanguage
Since embracing her B.I.F., Cyndi has become a recognized speaker, podcaster, author, and recognized internationally as an expert in her niche. Cyndi is known for her educational and entertaining presentation style to both first responders and mental health professionals. She has spoken at a wide variety of local and statewide conferences as well as the national stage at the Foundations of Connection Summit, International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), and the FBI National Training Academy Association Conference (FBINTAA). She is asked to consult with professional associations in her niche of law enforcement mental and relational health. In 2021, Cyndi released her book, Hold the Line: The Essential Guide to Protecting Your Law Enforcement Relationship which has been recognized by experts in the field as essential reading.
In 2020, the American Counseling Association awarded Cyndi the Samuel T Gladding Unsung Heroes Award for her work with first responders and in the counseling field and Texas Counseling Association awarded her the Presidential Award for her continual work and support in the counseling field.
