Cynthia has invested over 20 years, as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), in the San Diego medical community. She confidently navigates concerns with medical care coordination, navigating the continuum of care, to promote options and outcomes that did not previously seem possible.

Cynthia will help guide a more secure path for the challenges you, your loved one, or client are facing. We all have experienced being lost, worried about a wrong turn taken, inaction due to fear, or faced a dead end; felt hopeless. Working together, directions and solutions will be identified to overcome perceived and identified obstacles. Her goal is to help you re-imagine your life, or your loved one’s life; even, your lives together. With extensive experience in life care management and a vast history of client success, her comprehensive and collaborative approach, with all involved parties, will help improve relationships, age in place, find advocacy with medical and community care providers, transition to a smaller home or a more supportive level of care; let her help you explore all the possibilities of which you may not be aware.

Cynthia is also keen in crisis and high conflict situations, acting as a mediator with family, fiduciaries, attorneys, or protective authorities. She is also a reliable local link for loved ones out of area who are not able to be here to monitor status as desired or readily in times of need.
