ASHTON, Md.—CentrePointe Christian Counseling welcomes three new counselors to its staff: Cynthia K. Goeller, LCPC, to the Frederick, Md., office; Scott Klingberg, MA, Pastoral Counselor, to the Parkville and Bel Air offices; and Miko Masterson, MSW, LCSW-C in the Greenridge office.

Goeller, a licensed therapist with over 10 years of experience is now seeing individuals and families at the Frederick (Church Street) CentrePointe location. She is very excited about this new opportunity to serve the community.

Goeller has worked for several non-profit counseling agencies throughout the state of Maryland prior to her work with CentrePointe.  With over 10 years of experience, she is dedicated to serving each of her clients with compassion, professionalism, and genuine support to help them in achieve their goals.  Though she has previously worked in secular organizations, she states that the best part of working at CentrePointe is the ability to blend her professional training and education with the greatest resource, God’s Word.

“Cyndi Goeller came to us highly recommended by her pastor, Kevin Marsico, who describes her as an active learner,” said Kim Cook, CentrePointe’s executive director. “Cyndi represents a trait shared by many of our staff…’study to show thyself approved.’”

A member of the American Counseling Association, Goeller’s professional experience includes working with individuals, families, and groups, covering issues of life transition, survivors of all types of abuse, and parents of children with emotional and behavioral challenges. She has also presented on a range of topics, including building natural supports and teams to support individuals and families affected by mental illness, suicide prevention, domestic violence, and sexual assault response

She can be reached at (800) 491-5369, ext. 116.

Scott Klingberg recently joined the staff of CentrePointe Counseling as a Pastoral Counselor – Extern.

Klingberg’s background includes 25 years of ministry experience working in and with local churches, primarily in the Midwest. He has a wealth of experience working with youth, families and couples. Klingberg has a unique ability to connect with people quickly with a gentle spirit, and having been involved in ministry for many years, he understands the pressures and difficulties that arise in ministry work.

Klingberg holds a Master’s degree in religious education from Grand Rapids Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Mich., and will be completing a Master’s degree in counseling from Biblical Seminary in Hatfield, Pa., in 2012.

“We were excited to learn of Scott’s career change from Sandy Cove Ministries to pastoral counseling,” shared Cook. “Scott’s experience in ministry makes him especially equipped to help us expand our work in the Susquehanna Association and will make a strong addition to our team of counselors serving clergy and congregations.”

A member of the Association of Christian Counselors, Klingberg has a passion for restoring and unifying families and to walk along side those who are struggling or hurting on life’s journey. He can be reached at (800) 491-5369, ext. 123.
