Anti-Racism & Social Justice
Sophia makes a concerted effort to be culturally supportive and gender / sexuality affirming of her clients and to be aware of her privilege. She does this through personal research, readings, consultations and trainings. She also strives to make her therapeutic space safe for everyone. Racism, bigotry, sexism, classism, ableism, and hatred are not tolerated.
Sophia utilizes a person-centered approach and view the therapeutic relationship as an essential part of therapy. Her priority is to make sure that it is a right fit between her and the client. She also utilizes a blend of attachment-based interventions, eye movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR), cognitive behavioral therapy, and trauma based interventions.
The Right Fit
Sophia is a firm believer in therapy being successful if the client and therapist are a right fit for each other. Therefore, she offers a free 15 minute consultation prior to scheduling an intake to assess for compatibility in potential clients.
