Dr. Cindy J. Kao, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

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

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 my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with over 10 years of experience in psychotherapy as well as 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.
