Under Clinical Supervision

Sydney Kurtz, Licensed Professional Counselor, 178.019716 is practicing under the supervision of Jenna Lancor (Illinois, LCSW, 149019655) at Head First Health.

Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

If you’re struggling with feelings of self-doubt, anxiety, depression, feeling lost with your direction in life/career, or struggling with disordered eating, you have come to the right place. During our sessions, we will be doing values based work, along with CBT to explore if you are living a life in alignment with your core values. I challenge clients on their thoughts and actions to encourage them to be the best versions of themselves. I use approaches that emphasize growth and resilience. I believe strongly in embracing discomfort. I believe that in discomfort, there is growth; and with growth, comes change.

Work History

Topics that we often explore in session are: your relationship with food, connectedness with your body, being in tune with bodily cues, how your talk to yourself, cyclical dieting, self-esteem, family history and ways of coping. I take a holistic approach to fully understand the root of the eating disorder. I also support career driven women who are questioning their place in their careers. I went through the process of making a career transition myself, having formerly worked in Corporate America before transitioning to therapy. I help clients go through this exploration and identify what career feels aligned with their values, goals, vision & dreams.
