Dr. Anne Cinque is a licensed clinical psychologist in private practice with offices in northwest Washington, D.C. and Boyds, Maryland. In twenty years of private practice she has specialized in depression and anxiety in adults and adolescents. Her work includes relationship issues, transition issues, abuse issues, posttraumatic stress disorder, people in crisis and people “stuck” on their journey toward a whole and fulfilling life. 

Dr. Cinque’s approach to therapy is eclectic. She is trained in a Jungian approach to situations for which that is appropriate. She uses cognitive therapy when that fits and is a strong supporter of eastern and spiritual approaches. After twenty years as a clinician, her work has become individualized to suit a client’s needs.

Dr Cinque has an M.A. from the University of Cincinnati and a Ph.D. from the University of Maryland. She has done course work in various therapeutic approaches (Harvard, Johns Hopkins, etc.) and has completed a post-doctoral program in posttraumatic stress disorder coordinated by the Maryland Psychological Association.

Dr. Cinque’s teaching credentials include positions at the University of Cincinnati, the University of Maryland and at various Maryland correctional institutions. She has lectured extensively on psychology and film; she has given courses at the Smithsonian Institute and the Corcoran; she has spoken at APA and AMA conventions and at various universities. Her past and present board memberships include: Washington Society for Jungian Psychology; Forum for the Psychoanalytic Study of Film; Sugarloaf Citizens Association; Institute for International Connection. She is a member of the American Psychological Association and the Maryland Psychological Association.

In the last few years, in addition to her private practice, Dr. Cinque has been involved in work overseas. She teaches courses in a four-year-old program in psychology in Azerbaijan. She has taught and worked with refugees in Russia. After the tsunami in 2006 she set up training programs in Sri Lanka. She helped Hindi, Buddhist and Christian village leaders to organize, verbalize and confront their shared traumas, when this help was appropriate. She set up direct U.S. funding for their rebuilding.

Dr. Cinque’s Boyds office is located in the back of a renovated bank barn overlooking the fields and hills beyond. She lives on this small farm in rural Montgomery County where she and her husband have owned, bred and trained horses, raise their own hay and vegetables and are very active in the preservation of the Agricultural Reserve. She has been married to her husband for 40 years and has two married sons and three grandsons. She is an avid reader, enthusiastic photographer and curious traveler. She has traveled in Europe, Africa, South America, Vietnam, India, China, Russia and the Caucuses.
