Location: 1300 York Rd., Suite 240 B, Lutherville, MD 21093

Cindy Crown is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who serves families and children.  In 1999, she received her Masters of Social Work from University of Maryland with a concentration in Families and Children. Most of her career she has worked for Catholic Charities as a therapist in a therapeutic after-school program, in outpatient mental health and as a school consultant for Head Start and in local parochial schools.  She has also worked in private practice at Metro Maryland Counseling Services.  She has an Early Childhood Mental Health Certificate and is a Circle of Security Registered Parent Educator. Cindy has also had the privilege of learning from Dr. Anne Townsend in her Mariposa Child Success Programs, which teaches parents techniques to build social and emotional competency in their children.

Her passion is to work with parents to nurture a strong bond with their child to help them raise a more secure child who is socially and emotionally competent.  Research shows that more secure children have increased self-esteem and ability to solve problems, are more inclined to have positive interpersonal relationships and show empathy and kindness toward others. Cindy seeks to give parents the tools to build a strong foundation for a secure attachment with their child through Circle of Security Groups as well as counseling for parents using mindfulness, neuroscience, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and teaching skills to foster empathy and emotional intelligence.
