Hello, my name is Cindy Bock. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a qualified Mental Health Professional with the State of Washington. I have a Bachelors in Psychology from Washington State University and an Masters in Counseling Psychology from Pacific University. I am a Nationally Certified Counselor with the NBCC, and an associated member of AMHCA, WMHCA, and Psi Chi.
I am an experienced Cognitive Behavioral Therapist, who engages clients with a Person-Centered approach while considering the impact of both Family and Social Systems on both the issues at hand, and their roots in the past.
I have extensive experience helping those dealing with Depression, Borderline Personality Disorder, Grief and Loss, Anxiety, Low Self Esteem, and Relationship issues. I also have training and experience helping those suffering from Trauma, Complex Trauma, and PTSD through Trauma-Focused therapies including Cognitive Processing Therapy, Prolonged Exposure, and other desensitization therapies.
I am experienced in working with a variety of ethnic groups including Native American, African American, Caucasian, and Asian, and have special training and experience working with specific cultural groups including the homeless, military members and their families, and members of the LGBTQ community.
Any one of us can find ourselves filled with disappointments, frustrations, pain, and trials beyond our expectations, or ability to deal with on our own. These things can impair our ability to live positive and productive lives, have successful relationships, and can leave us feeling like we are being tossed around at the whim of the next wind or next wave.
As a clinician, I consider it an honor to assist those dealing with such issues, to work through them and move beyond them, with the goal of finding a happier, more comfortable, and in-control place to start their lives on the path they deserve and most desire.
