Sydney Anchor

Sydney MA LPCC

Therapist & Senior Neurofeedback Clinician 

_DSC6166_edited.jpg

Sydney’s approach to therapy focuses on seeing, hearing, and accepting her clients exactly as they are. She understands that we are all a product of our experiences, and thus, approaches therapy with a deep empathy and compassion regardless of perceived pitfalls. Sydney has had success helping clients gain insight into the impact of their experiences and using that insight as a tool for change.

She realizes there isn’t a “one size fits all” approach to therapy so she has found that drawing from a range of trauma-informed modalities such as Person-Centered, CBT, DBT, ACT, Seeking Safety, and Solution-Focused has been a way to meet the complexities of her client’s needs. Her experience includes working with cases of domestic violence, grief, PTSD, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, and more. Sydney is currently accepting clients for individual therapy.

In her free time, Sydney’s favorite ways to take care of herself include hiking, skiing, thrifting, DIY projects, and spoiling her two cats.

Rowen Svoboda

Somatic, Health + Body Image Coach | Neurofeedback Clinician

Rowen Anch

Working with Rowen and receiving somatic coaching is a little different than talk therapy. Rowen's approach is to gently address what's underneath her clients' symptoms by working in present-time with re-training the nervous system. She also strives to cultivate a high level of attunement to follow her clients' own innate instinct to heal from difficult life experiences.

 

A somatic (i.e. body-based mindfulness approach) has been found to be highly effective treatment especially with treatment-resistant conditions. Rowen has found after working with other modalities, that with this approach, clients tend to feel greater relief and regain functioning both in session and at home with gentle and continuous practice.


Rowen is an intuitive and welcoming presence. She holds space for clients to untangle and navigate complex symptoms like issues of identity and trauma, burnout, chronic or unexplained illness, persistent anxiety, depression or insomnia. She provides a lot of support and listening to collaborate with her clients' own innate healing wisdom. 


Rowen is a seasoned guide for complex illness, those who are highly sensitive and women recovering from burn-out. Often there is a core link between feeling burnt out and overwhelmed with early nervous system dysregulation patterns that can lead to complex health issues. Until nervous system dysregulation is addressed, she often hears that her clients have tried everything before experiencing more relief. 

She trains extensively in hidden causes of mental health issues, like C-PTSD and early childhood neglect, birth trauma and attachment issues. In a general sense, she supports all of her clients to repattern from adverse experiences and reclaim a core sense of self and safety. 

She also serves those who have experienced marginalization due to LGBQIA+ identity and those who have experienced gender bias when seeking medical support. 

Rowen integrates body-mind practices, attachment repair, internal family systems, mindfulness and techniques from somatic experiencing. She provides resources for clients to practice at home so relief can be exponential. 

Rowen is passionate about the power of truly integrative, compassionate care and spends a lot of her time studying and practicing various modalities with thought-leaders of somatic psychotherapy. Rowen is pursuing licensure as a clinician, after eight years previously working as a registered psychotherapist. In her free time, she can be found off in the woods identifying plants, cherishing friendships, playing the ukulele and enjoying all forms of expressive and movement art.
