Sydney Hyde, LGPC, M.A.
By using trauma-informed approaches, I have helped my clients develop coping skills, learn self-regulation techniques, process their trauma histories, and reintegrate into the community.
A Note From Sydney
Deciding to pursue therapy is a huge step in moving towards a life of healing, and I am honored
and excited to go on this journey with you. You are enough just as you are, and I want to help
you recognize those qualities in yourself and teach you how to utilize them to tackle all that life
throws at you.
My experience as a therapist for children in residential treatment has allowed me to understand
the lasting impacts of trauma and the needs underlying those pain-based behaviors. I have been
fortunate to have worked with a unique group of children and adolescents to help them process
their trauma stories and work towards reuniting with their families and communities. More
specifically, I have worked with children and adolescents experiencing PTSD, ADHD, anxiety
disorders, depression, low self-esteem, grief/loss, attachment disorders, and complex trauma.
Why I Became a Therapist
I became a therapist because I see the beauty in our differences and want to help others use their natural strengths to overcome their hardships. While we are a sum of our parts, we have the right to live the lives that we desire, and I want to help you do just that.
What I am Passionate About
I am passionate about creating the life that you want despite the life that was handed to you. It
can be difficult to move through the emotions you may feel from influences outside of your
control, and I want to help you take that power back anyway that I can.
