I go to the ocean to watch the waves coming and going,
coming and going.
Does the beach make futile attempts to hold onto each wave?
Two degrees in psychology and intensive training in life coaching and hypnotherapy have given Sydney a firm foundation in human dynamics and an equally firm belief in our endless ability to change and grow. In complement to her psychological training, many years of exploring Eastern philosophies have shown her how to use valuable spiritual principles and practices for living a meaningful life.
Sydney specializes in transformational work. While she can help you to lose 20 pounds, or prepare for an all-important interview, or deal with that challenging relationship, she will also show you how to deal with those aspects of yourself that are challenging so they are no longer triggered by other people. She can teach you how to prepare not only for an important presentation but for the unexpected that inevitably shows up in life. And, she will help you to treat all aspects of yourself with unconditional respect so that the changes you make actually stick. She loves this aspect of her work the most.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Sydney helped me see truths about my life in areas I was neither prepared nor willing to realize were holding me back. I’m extremely grateful for her skilled approach in working with my alpha personality. As a result, I’m able to hear what people say to me so I can better communicate as a husband, colleague, and business leader.
I love how Sydney keeps me on topic even when I try to veer off in another direction. She is persistent in a way that feels safe and leads me to greater insight.”
"I thought I knew how to conduct myself in an interview. What I didn't have a grasp of was the preparation needed BEFORE sitting in the hot seat. Sydney was extremely helpful in getting me to laser in on the important information to emphasize and HOW. All the while she was kind and non-judgmental, as well as intuitive and creative.
