    About Cindy Burman

    Hello and welcome to Higher Ground Counseling and Coaching!

    My name is Cynthia Burman, I am a mental health therapist and a certified coach for parents of teens experiencing mental health issues.

    I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Mental Health Counselor Supervisor (LCMHCS) in the state of North Carolina and a licensed mental health counselor in Florida.

    I am also a certified IPEC (Institute of professional excellence in coaching). I coach parents of teens who are experiencing mental health challenges. I offer coaching packages to parents seeking support to become the best parent they can be, while improving their relationships with their teen.

    I work with individuals to become the best version of themselves, especially when picking themselves up from a difficult time or situation. We all have the opportunity to learn and grow into our full potential. Seeking support to become all that you can be, can be difficult and scary. I completely understand it can be tough to reach out for help. I truly believe if you here it is meant to be, at this time in you life on your journey.

    I am a passionate therapist and life coach committed to helping you improve your life on a day to day basis. I have over 20 years experience working with parents, teens, and adults. I treat life changes, anxiety, mood dis-regulation, adoption, and relationship issues. I will go above and beyond to provide you with evidenced based practices that help you to heal and thrive. My goal is to help others create positive life changing wellness.

    It takes courage to seek a fulfilling and happier life. Taking the first steps towards healing and change can be difficult, with professional support this can make a huge difference in your life. If you are ready to take that next step , I am here to support and empower you as you grow, learn and feel better!!

    I look forward to working with you!
