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.

Minimal Paper Coming Soon Instagram Post .png

Cindy holds a master's degree in family therapy and believes in honoring the body's way of connecting to the mind in the midst of trauma. She is drawn to holistic healthcare and is passionate about the mind-body connection.


Cindy pulls from DBT (Diabolical Behavioral Therapy) and CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) as two methods of helping clients find  a neurological and physiological reset and discover how to keep the brain and body positively connected.. 


She understands how instrumental thoughts are, and that sometimes they lead us down the wrong path. CBT is a gift to therapy in that clients are empowered to get their thoughts under control. She understands how to use CBT to stop patterns of negative thinking. This modality is beneficial for anxiety, substance abuse, suicidal ideation and prevention, and many other health concerns. 


Cindy sees couples, individual adults, and parents with adolescents in crisis. She is non-judgmental in her relationship with clients and accept clients exactly where they are in their process. She hopes to empower you to leave therapy in the best place imaginable.
