Professional statement

Cynthia Martin, an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist based in San Francisco, California, offers an integrative therapeutic approach tailored to the individual stories, needs, and goals of her clients. She guides them through a process of self-exploration, helping to uncover how past experiences shape the present and reveal patterns that influence their true desires and identity. Cynthia emphasizes the importance of tuning into and understanding one’s inner signals, advocating for moments of pause to listen deeply and cultivate a practice of responding to personal needs with curiosity and mindfulness. Her therapeutic partnership is a cornerstone of her practice, characterized by a genuine, judgment-free environment where challenges are addressed collaboratively. She places a significant focus on the impact of societal and cultural factors, aiming to enhance awareness of how these elements intersect with and influence individual lives. By intertwining the narratives of past experiences with future aspirations, she facilitates a journey into the present moment with the aim of integrating and harmonizing the multifaceted aspects of one's being. This empowering process enables individuals to emerge as cohesive, confident entities, fully capable of navigating their life's path with autonomy.

Cynthia is currently providing tele-therapy to California residents through The Center For Mindful Psychotherapy.
