Limited Openings and Possible Waiting List.

Sometimes, our lives are going fine – until they aren’t. It takes courage to recognize when you need help, and taking those first steps toward a happier and more fulfilling life isn't easy.

I am here to support and empower you if you are ready to take that step. My name is Dr. Cindy Kao, and I have a doctorate in clinical psychology from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with over 10 years of psychotherapy experience and a university lecturer and professor. I am licensed in Oklahoma and Maryland. I’m an advocate for military causes and am a military spouse.

I specialize in relational work, daily stressors, feelings of loneliness, worry, grief, and trauma, dealing with change, parenting, and women’s issues. I am a Dialectical Behavioral Therapy-informed clinician and often utilize mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral interventions. However, I will tailor our work together to meet your unique and specific needs.
