Dr. Cindy Sample is a gifted and insightful therapist who has distinguished herself in her career by focusing her practice on assisting individuals who have undergone severe and debilitating trauma.

Unique to other clinical counseling practices, Cindy Sample Therapy offers services beyond in office therapy. Concierge treatment options like home/office visits, Skype therapy for busy professionals, and professional coaching and academic advocacy contracts are also available.

Cindy's desire to heal the most severe cases of trauma has taken her practice to visit orphanages and schools in West and Southern Africa, as well as the Caribbean, to bring healing therapy to some of the poorest and disenfranchised children in the developing world. As a result, Dr. Sample has adopted an orphanage in Tanzania, where she continues her outreach and follows up activities on behalf of the children she feels so honored to have met there.

Cindy also has a deep passion for education and has served on a number of educational advocacy groups and panels within DC and Northern Virginia. She co-founded the highly acclaimed Classroom of Discovery program providing exceptional education to young preschool children.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

Perhaps you have had a bad experience in the past with therapy. Often patients come to me reluctant to have therapy reporting having seen a therapist in the past that either didn't seem to get their problems or offer them anything helpful. Or they will say, "I don't need therapy, I am not crazy!" The truth? It is mostly healthy people seek therapy. I have been privileged for over 15 years to work with brave people willing to take a deep and vulnerable examination of themselves.
My philosophy? Simple: In life we repeat what we don't repair. We will continue to find ourselves in the same struggles and troubled relationships until we get to the origin of why we continue to make the same choices that lead to the same problems.

My belief is that successful therapy provides a person a real relationship where trust is essential. For therapy to be successful, a patient needs to feel engaged in the work with their therapist, understood and listened to. Therapists need to bring to the work more than significant credentials and degrees. As important is the ability to offer true support and understanding free of judgement.
