Cindi began her counseling career in the late 70’s in the field of addictions where she co-created some of the first programs for families who were affected by addiction. In 1981, she co-created the first Dual Diagnosis programs in the Midwest at St. Paul Ramsey Medical Center and Abbott North western Hospital. She also worked with people who had suffered head traumas, spinal cord injuries and burns due to their chemical use or mental health issue.
In 1981, she was exposed to the Health Realization/Resiliency model, using the three principles of understanding as it was introduced to the United States from Canada. She immediately saw the dramatic results she had with her clients and set off to do an 18-month internship. She worked in Minneapolis as a counselor in a clinic with author Joseph Bailey who wrote the Serenity Principle, Slowing Down to the Speed of Life and The Speed Trap.
In 1991, she felt called to work in the low-income public housing area and bring counseling and Health Realization to people who typically have less access to healthcare. The community center was housed in the middle of a heavily gang-influenced area. She created programs and counseled parents and children. The community became empowered; they change their lives and reduced crime.
In 1995, she co-created a collaborative to build a family practice clinic connected to the community center. In 1998, the clinic received the American Hospital Association’s Nova Award, which was one of the five clinics selected from 200 clinics nationwide.
