Welcome to My Practice

My name is Cynthia Pastor. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist practicing in Walnut Creek, and have been working as a therapist in Contra Costa County with adults and couples since 1985.

I work with you to create a relationship based on mutual respect, caring and trust. This helps build the feeling of safety that lies at the core of any successful therapy. My goal is to support you in finding and strengthening your own inner voice.

When we learn to free ourselves from old, stuck patterns of relating (in mind and body), we often feel a lightness of being that allows us to experience more joy in our everyday lives.

I help adults and couples working on issues with relationships and codependency, grief and loss, depression, anxiety, and issues related to addictive patterns with self and others. Please see my “Treatment Page” for a more extensive list of treatment issues. I am bilingual and offer services in Spanish as well as English.
