Cyndi Long is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in San Ramon, CA. Cyndi supports teenagers (15-18), young adults (18-26), and adults (24+), including parents and families. Many of Cyndi’s clients face challenges during or after life transitions or periods of major change, which may include the natural transition into adulthood or changes that were either expected or unexpected. They may experience emotions like stress, confusion, or emotional exhaustion, which can become overwhelming. Cyndi helps those who face questions of gender identity, women’s issues, mood dysregulation, and those who want to improve their relationships.
Cyndi’s therapy style is warm, nonjudgmental, and compassionate. Her goal is to authentically connect with clients to help them unlock their personal resources and innate coping strategies. To do so, she practices Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), thought-based therapy approaches (CBT and Core Beliefs work), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (a skills-based approach). Sessions also often include mindfulness practices to raise clients’ self-awareness so they can learn more about their thoughts and emotional reactions and resilience building to reduce their time in distress.
Cyndi earned a Master’s degree in Social Work from California State University, Sacramento, and has been in practice for over 16 years. She is passionate about walking alongside clients letting them work at their own pace in therapy, providing them with the empathetic support they need to reach their mental health goals.
