Sydnie's approach to therapy is eclectic, humorous, and person-centered. She believes everyone is the expert in their own lives and it's an honor to share in their stories. Sydnie recognizes the importance of culture and customs as they relate to identity and strives to create a therapeutic space that is safe and open. Sydnie utilizes CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), SFBT (Solutions Focused Brief Therapy) and Gestalt techniques in her practice, meaning you can expect her to challenge you while also supporting you to problem solve. Sydnie believes that oftentimes people have the answers within themselves, they just need some help to detangle them.
