Cindy Guzman is a licensed social worker who earned her bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Western Illinois University and her master’s degree in Social Work at University of Illinois Chicago. She was inspired to become a therapist after recognizing the limited access youth have to mental health services.
Before coming to Willis CC, Cindy gained invaluable experience working with youth and adolescents experiencing anxiety, depression, self-regulation, and life transition difficulties in school settings. At Willis CC, she looks forward to working with young adult guests (18-35), with the hope that early intervention can provide them with helpful tools to navigate and cope with their circumstances.
Those who know Cindy best describe her as curious, honest, and reliable. During sessions, her style is to provide honest, thoughtful dialogue, suggestions, and feedback. Ultimately, she recognizes the importance of guests having someone to talk to, which she believes can make all the difference in their outlook on life.
Cindy is originally from Hoffman Estates, IL, and she loves to read, watch documentaries, and make miniature doll houses. She also enjoys painting and forest preserve walks, and she’ll never pass up a chance to snack on honeydew.
