Cynthia Almonacy

Manager of Member Services, NAAHP

Registration Lead, NAAHP Conference (2018)

My name is Cynthia Almonacy, I have a doctorate degree in counseling psychology.  With that degree, I currently work for a non-profit organization supervising their home-based program using an evidence model to provide therapy to families in need.  Furthermore, I also have a private practice where as a licensed mental health clinician I am able to provide therapy to couples, families, children and individuals. I am one of the members of Haitian American Partnership for Positive Actions –RI (HAPPA-RI).  The goal is to assist the Haitian community in RI to preserve the culture and to assist them with any of their needs.  I have been working steadily to integrate mental health in the Haitian culture as a means to remain emotionally healthy.  I wrote an article last year that was published this year with this intent.  My goal is to continue working in that area by partnering with other organizations with that same intent to meet our fellow Haitians’ emotional needs.
