I firmly believe every person has already within them what they need to heal and thrive. I simply serve as a tour guide to help you connect with that inner strength.

My name is Cindy Robinson and I am the founder of The Kid Factory. The Kid Factory started as my own personal journey to understand the mental health crisis our families were facing. What I discovered was life-changing and I felt a sense of urgency to help others navigate that journey for themselves.

I am a Board Certified Integrative Life Coach from the Integrative Wellness Academy. I combine that training with nearly a decade of other training, including licenses, workshops, mentorships, research, and more to create my own style of practice that is unique and intentional. It is my passion and my purpose to stay on top of leading-edge research and tools for how humans best thrive, not just survive.​ 

What type of clients are ideal for my work?


TEENS/young adults 

  • your own childhood trauma or mental health diagnosis (ADHD/OCD/Anxiety/PTSD) is impacting your ability to be the type of parent you want to be

  • you have done the work with a therapist, but still have some residual negative thought patterns that ruminate

  • you have a child who is struggling with a mental health diagnosis or sexual/gender identity and want to know how to best support them

  • you feel you've lost your sense of purpose outside of being a parent/spouse

  • you feel you have lost your intuition and don't know where to go next

  • you are diagnosed with OCD, anxiety, and/or ADHD and want to understand your diagnoses or yourself on a deeper level

  • you are struggling to know who you are, this may include ruminating, dissociative, or intrusive  thoughts

  • you are struggling to make life decisions ("adulting") or are afraid of the transition from childhood into adulthood

  • you are buckling under the pressure to succeed (aka "gifted kid burnout")

  • you cannot see the amazing person everyone says you are

  • you feel unmotivated or lack executive functioning skills

Client Feedback:

"My child came back to life after seeing Cindy. I cannot express how grateful we are. I am in tears just writing this... tears of joy. Her tools are so simple but yet so life-changing. I love that she really supports the parents as well because it is not easy to parent a teen today!"


What does working with me look like?

Step 1: Reach out to me  - we will chat for about 30 minutes (at no charge) and discuss whether I am the right fit. If I am not the best fit I will refer you to another professional.... I have a wonderful referral network of fantastic people!

Client Feedback:

"I've been through several different forms of therapy - but none as direct, intuitive, and helpful in a short amount of time as Cindy's. I found her style and approach to be very thoughtful and self-empowering. She almost acted as a clear channel of guidance and I am incredibly grateful for the strength and insight she brought to the sessions."      

Step 2: If you decide to schedule with me, we will discuss what your care plan will be.  The length of time a client sees me varies and is totally individualized, however most of my clients see me for an average of 12 sessions (at a rate of $85 per 1 hr session). Coaching is designed to be different from therapy, in that it is typically more appropriate for people who do not need long-term support. What your sessions will look like also varies from client to client, but here are some methods I often utilize in my practice:

  • in-person sessions (meet at either my office at West Milford Farm or at a local park or trail for walk-and-talk)

  • virtual sessions are also available (for long-distance clients)

During sessions I often use these methods:

  • walk-and-talk

  • guided meditation

  • emotional clearing

  • restorative yoga

  • the use and discussion of physiology of your brain and body, neuroscience, genetics, and other scientific research that is relevant to your healing process

If this sounds like the right fit for you, feel free to contact me and let's get started! You'll know if/when it's time and I'll be here when you are ready!

Client Feedback:

"Cindy helped me overcome what I have been afraid of facing my entire life within 4 sessions."
