Welcome to Cynthia C. Ridgway, Mental Health Counselor in Tacoma

Who I Am

My Therapy Practice

My experience allows me to offer confidential outpatient mental health counseling in a warm, empathic and compassionate atmosphere.  I specialize in trauma related issues, both acute and complex.  I also specialize in women's issues, particularly childhood complex trauma, including physical and sexual abuse.  I enjoy using my education and experience in parent coaching and guidance for those individuals and couples experiencing struggles with adopted or foster children.  

My Treatment Focus

My focus is to help individuals recognize and heal from negative past experiences. I assist clients in their self-discovery and individualization process, offering guidance and support as they find new energy, strength and purpose. Cynthia C. Ridgway, Mental Health Counselor in Tacoma

Our Patient Promise

I promise to be there for you every step of your journey. My goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life. 

My Therapy

Depression & Anxiety

Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, I am able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life. 


Trauma & PTSD

Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. I can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing. 


Adoption and Foster Care Parenting

Parenting can be a wonderful experience, full of love and excitement.  It can also be challenging and difficult, particularly for those who have unique circumstances, such as parenting adopted or foster children.  I have many years of experience educating parents around early trauma and the effects on a child's brain as well as offering a unique set of tools to help these children recover.
