Marriage and Family Therapist, LMFT
Cindy Yu is a bilingual (English and Mandarin Chinese) Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the states of both Florida and Alabama. She is well-trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, solution-focused therapy, Bowen’s theory, Gottman Method, CBT, and more. Cindy believes that each client is comprised of unique yet charismatic components such as personal upbringings, religious beliefs, and cultural backgrounds, that all contribute to narrate a cohesive personal story. This fundamental ideology has cultivated her into offering her clients unconditional positive regard and respect, while tailoring her treatment orientations to better serve each client’s individuality. Her passion is to help individuals, couples, and families to understand the misunderstood, to discover hope from the hopelessness, to speak the unspoken, and to seek possibilities through the impossible. Cindy also has a background in the medical field where she has obtained a strong foundational knowledge for medical diagnosis and medications. She understands the intricacy between medical burden and mental health.
2 Years Experience
Psychologist, PsyD, MEd
Life is filled with challenges. We all approach these challenges in characteristic ways that are shaped by the life we have lived up until that moment. We learn how to respond to challenges based on what has been helpful in the past. As we grow and move through life, these ways of coping can become less advantageous. Sometimes we get stuck in our responses to stress, and this can exacerbate negative feelings. I can help you learn to notice these patterns, the ways they have helped, and the ways in which they no longer serve you. Together, we will work to create more options for you to respond to the challenges of life.

It takes courage to change, especially when you feel stuck with painful and confusing thoughts and feelings. You may find yourself struggling to change self-defeating behaviors and frustrated you can’t find relief. Psychotherapy can help you get unstuck. As we explore what is bothering you, you develop a deeper understanding of what is keeping you stuck and use that understanding to work toward living a more fulfilling life. Psychotherapy is a process for better understanding ourselves, especially our automatic, often hidden, and sometimes contradictory motivations, feelings, and desires. If you’re interested in understanding and addressing the psychological factors underlying your concerns in life, I might be a good fit for you.
