Sydney Petersen

Accepting Clients

Hi! I am Sydney, an associate marriage and family therapist excited to join you on your journey.

Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in La Cresenta, CA
Supervised by Dr. Christine Rivera Licensed Psychologist

About My Clients

I work with parents of children with special needs such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, Traumatic Brain Injury survivors, and many other. The load they carry is overwhelming, yet so much they do goes unseen, unheard, and not fully understood by even their inner circles. How do they continue to carry so much? Who is caring for them? How do they process all the things they do/see/hold? Thing after thing, appointment after appointment, they keep marching on.

My Background and Approach

I believe healing takes place in spaces where we are truly seen, heard, and understood. I pursued marriage and family therapy to create these spaces for those that often don't experience this kind of support. I use a restoration therapy framework to walk with individuals through these unique life challenges. We all need a place to grapple with what we carry; the joy, the loss, the triumph, the suffering, the heartbreak, the "this is not what I expected" moments or the "this is not what I had planned" thoughts. I would love to join you on your journey that may consist of a lot of pain and emotional dysregulation and help you find more restoration and peace.
