Sydney Micheletti, LAPC
Sydney believes that change is in our control and, by working from that mentality, we can learn to accept & grow from what we cannot control in order to live our life in an more optimal way. Sydney uses a variety of evidence-based approaches depending on what her client’s needs are. In Sydney's therapy space, she values authenticity, safety, freedom to choose, connection to others as well as ourselves, and being challenged.
Sydney enjoys working with adults & adolescents (ages 12-17) who are curious about themselves, desire change, & are interested in exploring issues or past trauma that they feel may be holding them back. Sydney is a proud and active member of the LGBTQ+ community and has a special interest in working with individuals that identify within this population.
Some of Sydney's clients have a special connection with the outdoors & feel more comfortable in this setting as opposed to an office. Sydney offers "walk & talk therapy" sessions as well as office & virtual sessions.
Sydney has over 4 years of experience working in the mental health field. She has served in both inpatient and outpatient settings. A local to Athens, she is passionate about serving her community and curious about doing so in a holistic way. Sydney has provided effective therapeutic interventions using evidenced based approaches (CBT, DBT, & IFS) in a variety of community mental health settings before entering private practice. Sydney’s counseling experience includes individual, child, family, group, and couples counseling. These work opportunities paired with her cultural competence have prepared her to support clients in crisis, those with substance use disorders and dual diagnoses, and members of LGBTQ+ community.
