Cinda helps restore "hope" to your life. She helps put "hopes" into
action and guides in a way that helps one feel confident about life.
Natalie, age 30
Working with Cinda is all about self-discovery. I have found that I will
come to a session with a certain "area" I want to delve into and end up
walking out of a session with a whole new realization about myself
and/or those around me.
Sandra, age 55
After infidelity was discovered in our relationship, the trust between my fiancé and me was completely shattered.
With less than a year before our planned wedding day, we considered putting the wedding on hold, cancelling it
completely, or just ending the relationship. After searching [for] Madison-area therapists, we came across Cinda's
website. We opted to attempt salvaging our relationship with [Cinda's help], and we would not be where we are today
Cinda is very realistic and practical, and she recognizes that not all relationships will be able to overcome such
a hurdle. She does not focus only on the person at fault, but takes the time to [allow clients to] understand the
dynamic of the relationship and how each of us needed to work together to move past this. Due to the safe environment,
I was able to open up about my emotions, while my then-fiancé worked through the feelings she was having.
I appreciated that each session had a real goal, and [that] Cinda had us do work between sessions (homework,
communication styles practice). This really bridged the gap and made us feel we could work [on our own] towards
improving our relationship.... [in conjunction with] the.... time we spent with Cinda each week. My wife and I
have since gotten married [on] the date we originally set. We couldn't be happier with the changes we've made for
each other with Cinda's help.

When I first started seeing Cinda, I was in a very low point in my life.
She helped me look within and tackle my issues one by one. I have life
skills that I use every day [thanks to] my sessions with her.... she
really became a psychologist/life coach as time went by.
Randy, age 42
When I first started seeing Cinda, I had been dealing with anxiety,
depression, and a general lack of self-confidence and self-worth....
exacerbated by an unhealthy relationship.... Cinda has helped me with
self-esteem issues by encouraging me to identify my own strengths and
abilities, focusing and building on them.... Cinda has taught me
strategies to cope with day-to-day upsets on my own so that they don’t
throw me for a loop, giving me confidence to cope with life and whatever
comes my way. Cinda is never judgmental.... ;that is one of the things I
appreciate the most about her. Any time a friend [is interested in
finding a therapist].... I always give them Cinda’s name and number!
Rebecca, age 26
Cinda is a wonderfully gifted and personable counselor who listens to
her clients. She is able to relate to what we are feeling as a couple
and understands each person’s need to be heard and recognized. She has
helped us to become better people not only to each other, but to those
Kate and Dwight, ages, late 40’s and married over 20 years
Cinda assists me in navigating a path in life that makes me feel good
about who I am. Through [my work with her] I have gained skills to
communicate effectively in both my personal and professional life. Cinda
assists me in creating and maintaining healthy boundaries [giving] me
the ability to treat others with respect while also respecting myself.
Two skills that I have found extremely helpful are the self-talk and
factual talk.... I come out [of sessions] with a sense of pride in how I

Cinda LaMar is not your typical therapist. For her, it’s less about
business and much more about her commitment to improving how you feel
about yourself and your life. She genuinely cares about your personal
situation and provides you with the necessary confidence to tackle the
issues you are facing.
