More about Cynthia Mikolas


I am currently obtaining my Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University. I’ve worked as a social worker for nine years, supporting children and families from a diverse array of backgrounds, in various capacities, most recently supporting military families.

My therapeutic approach is influenced by cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness techniques, solution-focused brief therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy, though I am consistently learning new elements to benefit my clients. In my personal life, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.


Cynthia, what is your favourite quote?

I think the world can use more compassion, understanding, and animal cuddles.
