Cynthia has been on a different track her whole life. Raised in a traveling family, she has lived in Germany, Switzerland, North Africa, and the New England states. Since her mother worked for Butler psychiatric hospital in Providence, RI for 20 years, she grew up discussing and thinking about the way our minds and personalities work. "What did you dream last night?" was a common topic for discussion. In school Cynthia began to notice that unusual insight and a love for "deep thoughts" was her lot.
Attending Mount Holyoke College during the tumultuous Vietnam era further developed her understanding of self. She created her own independent major (communications) before it was common to do so, and took extra graduate courses at U.Mass, Amherst while still an undergraduate.
After college, Cynthia married and had, over a ten-year period, six beautiful children. Mothering was her primary focus for the next two decades. While fully engaged in this demanding career (!) she coordinated and ran several regional Women's Conferences, taught small weekly classes for women, and wrote articles for and about women's issues.
During these years, people began coming to Cynthia for spiritual advice and counseling. She developed a way of engaging the consciousness -- a way of seeing -- which she calls "Dreamwalking" and has helped people from all over the United States and elsewhere to a deeper understanding of self.
Cynthia's insights into human nature and motivation, as well as the paper she wrote about Women in the Mormon Church, enticed the head of Franklin Planner (now Franklin-Covey) to hire her as an independent consultant for curriculum development. At Franklin, Cynthia designed and tested prototype seminars on Time Management and Self Actualization.
After twenty years of private dreamwalking and intuitive work as well as teaching and development in southern New England and the mountain West, Cynthia moved in 1990 with her children to a lovely small farm in Pomfret, Vermont (near Dartmouth College) where she lives to this day.
Introduced to coaching in California a few years ago, Cynthia saw that this practice could augment and supplement her motivational work. She studied with the Coaches Institute to qualify for this new aspect to her practice.
Cynthia is a certified hypnotherapist and standing member of the National Guild of Hypnotists.
In addition, Cynthia is a dowser, trained at the International School of Dowsing in Vermont, and uses this skill in her practice.
Underlying and supplementing all of this is Cynthia's creative life. She has been an artist for many years and seeks to make the work she does with people a fun, creative, and colorful experience as well as an insightful one.
