About Cynthia

Cynthia Bonnycastle is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University. She empowers individuals, couples, and families to change and grow, having spent well over 3,000 hours in clinical outpatient clinics working with diverse populations. Along with providing individual, couples, and family therapy, her experience includes facilitating therapeutic groups for incarcerated youth and pregnant teens, as well as personal growth groups for women and men.

Using multiple approaches–including mindfulness, family systems, client-centered, and cognitive-behavioral –Cynthia has been trained to help those seeking direction to understand why they think and do what they do, look at themselves and their lives in a more positive and effective way, and develop healthy coping and emotion management strategies. She helps clients gain awareness and self-acceptance, believing that we all have the inner resources and strengths to manage life’s difficulties. Those seeking help are not broken, just discouraged and in need of skills and understanding.  

In addition to her clinical experience, she has worked as a school counselor for over 20 years, counseling adults, parents, and teens. This includes crisis intervention, behavior management,  bereavement counseling, and case management for students with disabilities or for those who receive county assistance.

One of my guiding quotes is from therapist Carl Rogers: ‘The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.‘ It can be a great struggle to accept ourselves just as we are and it is my personal mission to assist others toward this acceptance and beyond.” – Cynthia Bonnycastle
