Sydney Rowley, Graduate Level Clinical Intern & Therapist
Professional Counseling Student, M.A. Clinical Mental Health Counseling; Northwestern University
People tend to face a multitude of stressors in this fast-paced, growing world and struggle to take a step back and connect with their inner Self.
I aim to meaningfully empower diverse individuals to reach holistic wellness through implementing affirmative attitudes, self-care plans and life-balance strategies, something that is too often a struggle for so many of us.
I am passionate about genuinely holding a safe space for individuals from all walks of life to explore finding deep meaning and fulfilling relationships through evidence-based treatment interventions.
Sydney is a Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program student and Counselor-in-Training at Northwestern University. Over the past few years, Sydney has worked with various populations including individuals experiencing homelessness, disabilities, severe mental health challenges, elder and disability abuse and those struggling with persistent low mood and hopelessness.
Sydney provides individual therapy for young adults, older adults and parents in need of support. Sydney deeply enjoys working with individuals that identify as LGBTQIA+ and/or BIPOC.
Sydney primarily draws from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
Sydney specializes in providing clinical treatment for addressing patterns of addiction, self-worth, anxiety, depression, trauma recovery, burnout, gender identity and women’s issues.
Something that always gives me a sense of ease is connecting with nature. I love intentionally engaging with the world around me and practicing mindfulness (especially outside!) whenever possible. When thinking about my favorite peaceful moment, I think of summer camping with my favorite people and my dog, of course!
More than just my work:
I’ve played all kinds of sports, including soccer, volleyball, lacrosse (which I was, admittedly, never very good at) and tennis. I am definitely best with a racquet in my hand!
I was born in a small town in Oregon where I had a dog and a pet goat as my best friends.
I am a professional banana bread maker and it always includes chocolate chips.
