Sydney is passionate about helping those that are in front of her feel heard, understood, known, safe, and accepted. She desires to create a space in which individuals, couples or families can come as they are with their stories and painful experiences in order to be walked alongside to find healing and peace. Sydney believes that there is restoration in the therapeutic process as individuals learn more about themselves and the ways they react to pain in relation with others.

 

Sydney has experience working with emerging adults in a university setting where she helped them work through relational conflict and issues related to identity and image. Sydney also has experience working with individuals with a wide variety of special needs from both a behavioral approach as well as a developmental play therapy approach. Sydney is passionate about working with the families of individuals impacted by disabilities.
