What is Keeping You From Living Life on Your Terms?

Do you ever feel blocked or stuck in a rut? Maybe you have trouble reaching your goals or meeting deadlines. Do you feel exhausted from trying to get everything done, but still feel like you just aren’t making enough progress?


Often the source of our fears, stress, and even our exhaustion isn’t some outside force or circumstance. Most of the time it is our own minds that are holding us back.


Past traumas, negative feedback loops, and years of negative self-talk often create mental barriers that keep us from achieving our true potential. But, it doesn’t have to be this way.


Your mind is much more powerful than you realize. Your mind has incredible healing powers. Once you learn to tap into those powers you can begin to reverse the mental damage that has been done and to create new, healthy patterns that help you reach your true potential.


Even successful people sometimes feel stuck. I want to help you get out of your creative, behavioral, or mental rut and fully unlock all of your abilities.


I help my clients achieve dynamic change using the most effective and efficient mind-body technologies, rREST    , hypnotherapy, Neuro Emotional Technique and brain-healthy coaching programs. Here is what some of my clients have said about working with me:



 Thank you Dr. Cindy Sholes at the Mind Wave Institute! 


When an adult suffers from PTSD brought about by trauma, the healing process seems to be close to impossible and extremely difficult. Many years of Cognitive Therapy, trying countless different treatment options by various Primary Care Doctors, and even rigorous EMDR Therapy (which is recommended for Trauma PTSD), was not enough.


After just two full sessions with Dr. Cindy Sholes, I noticed how I was actually able to fully relax at the end of the day (and throughout daily activities) for the first time in ten years!


As a female Veteran, I know that we are constantly misunderstood, underserved, & even ignored. I hope that in sharing my healing experience at the Mind Wave Institute, many others (male & female) will find better health and great healing through Dr. Cindy Sholes and The Mind Wave Institute as well.


It was so simple, and Dr. Sholes is so amazing & experienced that it makes everything else I've tried seem like trudging through mud! If you have a similar issue, I highly encourage you to get started today!

Thanks to Cynthia my pre-teen son loves to go to school and he has shifted out of feeling off and on anxious and stressed about attending school!


I am super grateful that just a couple of sessions with her healed the root causes of his anxiety and stress.


Thank you Cynthia, you are a miracle worker!


-Rachel C.

I was dealing with anxiety/panic attacks but did not want to take medication if I could solve the problem another way.


Dr. Sholes was recommended by my doctor. I knew nothing about Neuro Emotional Technique prior to my first visit but have found it to be extremely effective.


She is incredibly insightful and has managed to get to the source of my anxiety in a short time. I am fascinated by her approach and love the results. I am grateful to have her as a resource.


-Paula S.

How I Work:

I have a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University of California at San Francisco. I am a certified Medical Hypnotherapist and Brain Health Coach. I work with clients in my confidential office setting.


Before beginning a program, I always listen to my clients. I want to understand what your goals are and what is holding you back. Most clients need between three and six sessions to fully eliminate their negative mental patterns and to replace them with positive patterns.
