Cynthia (Cyndi) Pollet
Practicing in Grandville
Master’s Level Therapist, Licensed Professional Counselor
After 12 years of serving as a teacher and then a school counselor in the K-12 educational system, Cyndi opened her counseling services to a broader population. She currently counsels children and adults—both singles and couples—who need help maneuvering through life adjustments. She earned her Masters of Arts in Counseling through Spring Arbor University in 2013 and is licensed as a professional counselor. While working in schools, she gained insight into the support process for students and is able to guide parents through the obstacles they may face while seeking the best educational experiences for their children. Cyndi directed standardized testing in the schools, discovering ways to improve students’ scores—including reducing test-taking anxiety. Through offering personal/social counseling, academic support and future career guidance to middle school students, she expanded her ability to address various needs of adolescents. She currently assesses children for inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity (ADHD) and provides therapy for children who struggle with self-concept and self-control.
Along with children and adolescents, Cyndi has worked with women and men who struggle with adjusting to life stressors. She has helped those who are suffering through divorce, loss of employment, loss of loved ones, dealing with chronic illness, and other grief-producing events. Utilizing Cognitive Behavior Therapy and mindfulness, she helps those with anxiety to discover coping skills. She has years of experience counseling couples negotiate their relationship struggles and has completed Gottman Method Couples Therapy level one training. In addition, she has provided counsel to those seeking bariatric surgery using Cleveland Clinic’s BEST Start handbook.
