Sydney Iverson, PhD
Address: 1700 Westlake Ave N, Suite 400 | Seattle, WA 98109
I am thrilled to be joining skilled The Seattle Clinic team for my postdoctoral fellowship year. I have grown passionate about providing individualized care to children, adolescents, and families over my training journey, and look forward to establishing my professional roots back home in the Seattle area.
My treatment focus is centered around the needs of each child and family, helping them to overcome barriers and challenges that interfere with having a fulfilling, healthy life. I work to authentically connect with each person in therapy, to build the necessary trust and alliance for them to grow and succeed. I believe that every person carries strengths that can be built on in therapy, to help form more positive habits, more genuine relationships, and new skills for a successful life.
I have received extensive training in cognitive behavioral treatments and enjoy adapting these treatment approaches to the many challenges that can arise in childhood. I am skilled at helping children and adolescents with mood, anxiety, behavioral, regulatory, and relational challenges learn ways to approach problems more effectively. I additionally enjoy supporting parents toward becoming the parents they want to be. Through evidence-based parent training, I help parents to learn skills that foster healthy, loving relationships with their children.
Though my training and experience with children and families is broad, and I enjoy working with a variety of individuals, I have strong interest in treating anxiety, fears, obsessions and compulsions. I love helping people learn to face their fears, so that they gain confidence in their strength. Through exposure-based treatments, I encourage people to overcome their avoidance of feared situations to move toward a more gratifying life.
I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of your journey, and I look forward to connecting with you.
