Hannah Sido, PsyD

Psychologist

Professional statement

Welcome! Balanced Awakening is exclusively for the unique psychotherapy needs of women. We help women overcome a wide range of difficulties throughout the lifespan to live more full, happy, and engaged lives. **Please note that this profile is for both Dr. Sido (schedules Monday) and Dr. Ridder (schedules Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday).** Dr. Sido is happy to help you decide which psychologist at Balanced Awakening could best suit your needs in a first appointment, as she currently sees clients in an "intake coordinator" role for the practice. Dr. Ridder is a Postdoctoral Resident at Balanced Awakening who sees clients for a variety of psychotherapy needs and has convenient evening and weekend hours. Dr. Ridder is supervised by Dr. Sido and Dr. Lorenz outside of your appointment time. As a practice we specialize in integrated mindfulness and acceptance based psychotherapies that are guided by your values to help you like the best life possible. We utilize evidence based psychotherapies such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), and Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP). We will send you a confirmation email upon booking an appointment which outlines office policies, office information, and an opportunity to verify your insurance prior to your session. *Please note our missed session policy. If you need to cancel an appointment, please cancel at least 24 hours prior to your appointment time to avoid the missed session fee.
