Cynthia Peters


About Me

I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, practicing in the state of Illinois. I started my career as an LMFT in Texas, graduating from Texas Woman's University, in Denton, Texas in 2006. Since moving to Illinois, I have worked in private practice with couples who struggle with loss of connection, conflict, communication, infidelity, and difficult life transitions, just to name a few. I have been trained in the Gottman Method, which provides a beautiful framework for working with couples of all sorts, and who are dealing with most any sort of relationship distress. I enjoy working with couples who are motivated for making good changes to strengthen their relationship. I am marriage friendly, so my focus is on helping couples reestablish, or sometimes even redefine their "happily ever after".

In the realm of relationship work, I am also a PREPARE/ENRICH Facilitator, specifically for premarital couples. PREPARE helps do just that--Prepare-- couples in knowing each other better by taking a look at both their strengths and weaknesses before they walk down the aisle toward wedded bliss.

My approach to working with couples often involves the use of outside activities and exercises to augment what we work on during sessions. Most couples actually enjoy the exercises, so not to worry! If you're ready to get to work, so am I.
