Cindy Freeney, LMSW


I have worked at Pine Rest for 10 years doing individual and group therapy. I counsel those with anxiety, depression, PTSD, Bipolar, stress, low self esteem, spiritual abuse and grief. I have spent my life trying to know Him and the power of his love but I also have experienced feeling like I had to do the leg work. I have felt him teach me to stop striving to be perfect yet listen and learn to follow his leading while living with as much integrity as I can muster. I feel like it is a deep honor when a client risks letting me into the despairing place of their heart and journey toward healing.

I have done extensive study on healthy relationships (Gary Smalley), Boundaries (Townsend/Cloud), and Developmental Immaturity (Claudia Black, Pia Mellody). I also am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).


In addition to my clinical work, I do talks on:

  • When to Martha, when to Mary, and when to Merry.
  • How to help someone you love that struggles with addiction.
  • Embracing grace vs. critical self talk…Stubbornly choosing joy
  • Discovering your destiny and clearing out the cobwebs
  • Boundaries…Assertiveness…Good Grief
  • Why women need women
