Cina Hoey, LCSW

My approach is a blend of traditional western psychotherapeutic techniques with mindfulness, meditation, and eastern philosophy in order to facilitate deep and sustainable healing. I believe that the capacity for healing along with the wisdom to manage your life's challenges already resides within you and will not take years of therapy to uncover. Perhaps that feels out of reach at the moment, but together we can work to restore your sense of balance, confidence, inner strength, and happiness.

I have studied with senior teachers in mindfulness and meditation and continue to attend trainings, workshops, and silent meditation retreats in order to deepen my own practice and cultivate the skills necessary to teach others. I have taught meditation to adolescents, seniors, adults, millenials, school teachers, college students, nurses, and professional groups.

​I am very passionate about this practice and experience deep fulfillment from sharing it with others. Additionally, I am an instructor for The South Florida Center For Mindfulness and offer weekly classes, group trainings, and workshops. 

I received my Master’s Degree in Social Work (MSW) from Florida Atlantic University and am grateful to have the opportunity to help others achieve a more enjoyable life as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Boca Raton, Florida. I have been privileged to work with nearly all ages, including adolescents, adults, and seniors. 
My specialties include mindfulness and meditation, anxiety and stress management, depression, binge eating disorder and addictive habits, and grief and loss.
