Hi, I’m Cindy Warden.I’m a life coach who works with men and women who are ready to make a fresh start after an unexpected life change like a career setback, relationship loss, or health crisis. I help them release the mental and emotional blocks that are keeping them stuck so they can create the new lives that are waiting for them. More importantly, when you partner with me, you get the support of someone who has been there.
My StoryOnce upon a time, I had a life of the party three-time Emmy nominated husband – and as a classically trained singer, pianist, and comedic actress, I’d performed on stages all over the country, been featured in scads of TV commercials, appeared on TV shows with icons such as Jim Carrey, voiced cartoons for the likes of Disney, and my antics as an actress had even provided the inspiration for the heroine in a best-selling author’s novel. Together, my husband and I enjoyed European vacations and shared a beautiful home in the foothills of Los Angeles where we entertained our boatload of funny and fabulous entertainment industry friends From the outside looking in, my life looked pretty freakin’ AWESOME. But behind closed doors, I had a secret. I wasn’t happy. Truth is, I’d struggled with chronic depression for so many years; doctors told me I’d never be able to live my life off medication. While I’d love to tell you that I was hit with some big epiphany where the clouds parted, angels sang, and in one fell swoop I was instantaneously inspired to change my life, it didn’t happen that way.
Instead, my perfect life got hit by a perfect storm.First, my marriage fell apart. Then, I discovered an (albeit common) byproduct of divorce I didn’t anticipate: the loss of friends. My phone didn’t ring. The party invitations stopped coming. The life I’d known for 10 years – poof! – vanished, and I sunk into an even deeper depression. As my life changed in radical ways, I could feel myself changing with it. After 20+ years in the entertainment industry, performing (my childhood dream) suddenly didn’t fit anymore, something I never thought would happen. My entire identity was wrapped up in my career. Without it, I had no idea who I was anymore. Clueless as to what to do next, I burned through my savings. I wound up so broke, one day I resorted to rummaging under my car seat, hoping to find spare change so I could buy an apple at the grocery store. Eventually, my health broke down. I was diagnosed with an excruciating autoimmune disease (interstitial cystitis). I was prescribed a medication to manage my pain, but the only thing it managed to do was cause half my hair to fall out. Then, I found a lump in my breast. But I got lucky. The lump wasn’t cancer yet. As I was wheeled into surgery, I felt as low as you can go. It was in that moment that I said to myself, “Enough.” As insurmountable as my challenges felt at the time, I knew I was meant for MORE.
I decided that no matter what, I was going to change my life and BE HAPPY.I got therapy. I attended workshops and seminars. I studied with brilliant spiritual teachers, and explored every spiritual principle and philosophy I could get my hands on. Eventually, that wasn’t enough for me. I longed to ground myself in scientifically based approaches to personal development. Ultimately, I became a brain science geek, and researched neuro-science and whole-body intelligence. In time, I began to discover that the key to changing my life was a combination of both the spiritual and pragmatic training I’d experienced – and I started referring to myself as part “woo” and part “do.” But here’s the key. I didn’t just study. I applied what I was learning, and I did the WORK – on myself. Was it hard? I’m not going to lie. Sometimes it was. There were moments when I was faced with so much of my own negative thinking, I was convinced I was going to be stuck, broke, and alone for the rest of my life. I wanted to give up But I didn’t. In some way, I intuitively knew that by facing my pain, I was on the road to healing, so I ran full speed ahead toward what it had to teach me. With the self-awareness, mindset tools, processes, and transformational techniques I was learning, I was experiencing sparks of self-worth, self-acceptance, confidence, and power I’d never felt before – and those moments fueled me forward. In time, the little changes I was making on the inside grew into BIG changes that were inspiring me to make new and different choices in my life. Ultimately, those new choices resulted in BIG changes in my outside world too. Bit by bit, I started taking my life to new heights over and over and over again, and I eventually knew, beyond a shadow of a doubt, where my journey had been leading me all along:
I was put on the planet to teach others what I’d learned.Today, there’s nothing I love more than helping my clients discover how their biggest disappointments and setbacks can serve as catalysts for remarkable transformations in both themselves and their lives. My life’s mission is to make the process faster and simpler for my clients than it was for me. (After all, I’ve spent years figuring out all this stuff.) So I pulled everything from my own experience; gathered and refined the most effective transformational tools, concepts, and techniques I could find to MAKE CHANGE HAPPEN.
Nowadays, I look at my disappointments and hardships as some of the best things that ever happened to me. I’m so grateful for who I’ve become — not in spite of them, but because of them.Every morning, I wake up to a life I never thought possible. I’m so grateful to be coaching, teaching, speaking, and doing something that I love so much, something that has the ability to help so many people. I’m in an incredible relationship with the love of my life, my soulmate. I have a smorgasbord of wonderful friends I adore. I enjoy financial security. I’m pain-free, in great health, and even cured myself of over 20 years of chronic depression.
