Need someone to talk to who feels safe, calm and helpful, besides your friends and family?
Need support for your parenting, work, relationships or communication skills?
Questioning your gender identity or sexual preference?
Let's figure out together what's not working and how to change it. Get beyond the sabotaging influence of the past and develop the self-confidence you need to get whatever you want. I've been helping people as a psychotherapist in private practice for over 30 years.
I now offer sessions exclusively on video conference

Nina Ham, LCSW
Thank you so much for all the help you were to me. I have been doing well. I am happier and more adjusted than ever.
I highly recommend Cynthia Lubow, MFT as a therapist. She is very compassionate, smart and perceptive.
"I've told you all my deepest darkest secrets, even stuff I haven't told my husband, and you never judged me and always made me feel normal. I can't thank you enough for that, it's been an incredible gift."
Interested in my unique thoughts about depression? I was the Depression Expert at Goodtherapy.org for several years, where I wrote original material monthly. If you'd like to see those articles, find them here:
"Depression is very different from sadness. Two of the clearest differences are the self-attack and pessimism that accompany depression. Sadness, alone, doesn’t cause us to hate ourselves or blame ourselves. Nor does it cause us to interpret our past, present and future as terrible and hopeless.
Depression, however, comes with a classic pattern that basically gets down to: “I’m bad; I’ve always been bad; I’ll always be bad;” and/or “my life is bad; it’s always been bad; it’ll always be bad.” Obviously people don’t usually think in these exact words, but it is experienced as a pervasive sense of being unforgivable, or of failure, defectiveness, lack of lovability, hopelessness, or powerlessness."
"I’ve struggled with depression for over half of my life and I’ve devoured every piece of literature on the topic. But, I’ve never come across a more eloquent and poignant description of what it’s like to live with this condition. Your words instantly brought me to tears because for the first time I felt like someone truly understood, and that I wasn’t alone in my mind. Thank you!"
