Sydney Anchor

Sydney MA LPCC

Therapist & Neurofeedback Clinician 


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.
