Sydney Walsh PhD LLP

headshots_Sydney.jpgI provide a warm, accepting and nonjudgmental approach, emphasizing the use of evidence-based treatments such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). In addition, I have received formal training and experience with Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and have facilitated DBT skills groups and provided individualized DBT treatment to adolescents and adults. I thus focus on applying mindfulness and related behavioral skills to help clients learn to tolerate distress, manage emotions, and increase their overall coping ability and quality of life. I have worked extensively with teenagers, adults, and families and specialize in the treatment of personality disorders, self-injury, anxiety, and depression. I also have significant experience working with eating disorders and eating issues including binge eating and emotional eating. I have worked in residential, inpatient, and partial hospital levels of treatment for adolescents and adults. I also provide psychological assessment with an emphasis on the diagnosis of severe psychopathology and personality disorders.
