Sydney Frattura Kampschroer, MSW


Philosophy of Care:

Sydney uses her warm and calm demeanor to put clients at ease, creating a welcoming environment where clients feel heard, understood, supported, and empowered. She helps teens and adults remove the barriers to living the life they want, collaborating with clients as they work toward treatment goals together. She couples the evidence-based practice of cognitive behavioral therapy with an innate perceptiveness and compassion, to identify unhelpful thoughts and behaviors, and teach clients skills and coping strategies to improve their lives. She works closely with parents to offer recommendations on how they can best support their adolescent in treatment. By providing opportunities to practice and learn outside of sessions, clients experience decreased symptoms and increased progress.

Special Interests:

Sydney works successfully with adolescents and adults who experience anxiety, depression, obsessions, compulsions, perfectionism, hair-pulling, and alcohol and/or drug use. She is gifted at developing rapport with teens, and passionate about helping them to develop and practice lifelong skills for current and future challenges. She specializes in using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) to help clients to overcome anxiety.

In her free time, you can find Sydney shopping at local farmers’ markets and baking delicacies in her kitchen. A lifelong dog lover, she also loves to spend time with family, friends, and of course their dogs.
