Welcome, I am so happy you're here! I'm Sydney, a graduate student in my final year at Lindenwood University for Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
As someone who has experienced the nerves of reaching out for help, I want you to know that coming to this website was the first step. The first step is usually the hardest, which is why I'm waiting at the very next one. I know what it's like to feel nervous to open up to someone and maybe even be hesitant to trust them. Everyone has a story, and exploring that story can feel overwhelming, scary, or maybe even impossible at times. My goal during sessions is to create a safe space where you feel seen. Oftentimes, that looks like simply establishing a relationship the first few times we meet. Together, we can figure out the best path for your journey. I like to tell people: I want to walk alongside you, not in front or behind you. Sometimes people just need someone to run with them to finish the race. I believe in the power of connection and take a more holistic, individual centered route in sessions.
My background primarily consists of working with disordered eating at a partial hospitalization program, as well an intensive outpatient program. While both programs focused heavily on eating disorders, they also intertwined with other mental health disorders. My other experience revolves around working with at-risk youth in emergency housing.
It is never too late or too early to invest in yourself. You are worthy of taking time to grow. I am open to working with children, teens and young adults in individual therapy as I begin my journey as a therapist. Wondering if we would be a good fit? We might work well together if you answer yes to one or more of the following:
- You want to improve your relationship with yourself
- You struggle to cope with and balance everything that comes with life
- You tend to worry about what others think of you
- You want to heal different parts of your inner self
- You feel nervous to start therapy and want someone nurturing
Finding a therapist you connect with is key, and I'm happy to have a consultation over the phone with you to see if we are a good fit!
