“Cynthia was my group facilitator at Sheena’s Place for Eating Disorders. One of the best things about her group approach is how she challenged us to identify our underlying issues and to develop coping strategies for them, rather than continue to dwell on the disordered eating. Such a push wasn’t always present in other groups that I attended, and thus I kept coming back to hers. I’ve continued to use the skills that were inculcated in her groups to not only continue to progress in my recovery, but I think to grow stronger as a woman in general.”


“When I came to see Cynthia, I was struggling with depression, anxiety, and eating issues. I worked with her weekly over a period of several months. With Cynthia, I really felt that I was in a partnership working towards my well-being. She wanted me to succeed, and helped me discover more beneficial ways of dealing with my stress. She also helped me to recognize my skewed thoughts and negative assumptions, and redirected me toward a more rational and forgiving view of myself. She is welcoming, fair, and willing to point out when you are not working enough! Truthfully, she is the best counsellor I have ever had.”
