  • About Cindy Burman

    Hello and welcome to Higher Ground Counseling and Coaching!

    I work with individuals to who want to feel better that are struggling through transition. I know what it is like to pick yourself back up after going through life challenges. 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 hear it is “not” by accident. 

    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, transition, break ups, relationship issues, and burn out and retirement.  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 you create a life you love by working with you to think differently, to change perspective, to challenge you, and to facilitate healing with break throughs in your life. 

    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!!
