About this pro

Our services are unique because we provide each client with The Emotional Budgeting Work Book designed to teach clients to more effectively process overwhelmingly emotions linked to persons, events or day to day activities. This process is called Emotional Budgeting. This term was coined by Dr. Paul Sambataro the founder of The American Academy of Primary Care Psychologists and author of the Emotional Budgeting Workbook. Dr. Paul is a Neurocognitive Scientist and also available for life coaching.

I provide therapy as a Ph.D level provider. My practice is open to adults. My scope of practice is Life Coaching and I do provide services in all 50 states.  

You may schedule an appointment with Dr. Paul or myself (Dr. Cynthia) at all sessions are online in a secured portal. You may fill out all required forms through the portal and learn more about reducing anxiety and stress.

I enjoy planting the seeds and watching the client grow.  I believe the good provider can assuredly meet the clients needs and create treatment plans that gradually step down care and follows with support as the client requires.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Often the process is dependent on company policy and procedures. I generally ascribe to Listerine namesake Dr. Joseph Lister, surgeon who stated “Never treat a patient you don’t know” which I believe amplifies the need to acquire as much preliminary information regarding the patient  prior to treatment, which I always read prior to meeting the patient.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a masters degree in nursing with a specialty certificate in psychiatric nursing. I then returned to school to obtain a doctorate in psychology. My blend of medical education and psychology has afforded me a unique perspecta that bridges gaps in treatment. I am a firm believer in building a supporting network around clients.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

My fees for service are consistent with universal fees or established based on contract or network agreements.

How did you get started in this business?

Professionally I started as a staff nurse and overtime found a need for improved psychological and psychiatric care in primary care. As my education and interests evolved and my own children left for college my husband and I adopted a lovely daughter who had special needs. I am a better practitioner because of her. So I had motivating factors professionally and personally to work within Behavioral Healthcare.

What types of customers have you worked with?

I have worked with all age groupings, I enjoy working in a capacity of educating clients to create a happier, more productive life.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

The Bad Pants Open for Children’s Hosp. Houston essentially the ugliest golf pants are worn to the golf tournament. It’s a highly successful fundraiser that lets us all do what we love for a cause we love and laugh at the same.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

I would recommend the clients need to determine if they feel entirely comfortable with the person they choose and the level of education of the provider.

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

I believe that mental health providers should always be cognoscent of the criteria for the need to either refer to the hospital for the next level of care when a client is a threat of harm to theirselves or others. In this case I think “What If” questions are highly effective to assure the professional can answer exactly what constituents self harm or threat to others. 

In our practice we like to assure all clients are receiving the care they need by the appropriate providers.
