Do any of these resonate for you?
I am a therapist and am looking for growth as a clinician.
I am a parent, caregiver, or educator and I want to learn how I can support myself, my child, or my students better.
I am a parent or caregiver and need therapy for myself, my family, and/or my child.
My own journey of growth has led me from seeking healing for myself, to helping others heal, and now to master the art of teaching and unlocking the intuitive potential in therapists and parents as they support the healing of their clients and children.
Important Facts about Sophie:
Wife and Mother
I am a wife to a dynamic and amazing husband that challenges me to grow. I am a mother to two amazing teenagers who help me practice what I preach. Providing classes for parents and caregivers allows me to teach others to do what I do.
Walking my own Path of Healing
I often tell others that I am qualified by experience. I have my own unique story of trauma and healing. My own healing has given birth to my sense of purpose in sharing the joy of achieving wholeness with others. Everything I do and teach, I have experienced myself as a client and as a therapist.
When I learned about EMDR for the first time as an undergraduate Psychology student I thought it was voodo. Having an EMDR therapist who helped me integrate and heal my own trauma gave me the passion to become an EMDR therapist and consultant.
Synergetic Play Therapy
I learned to "come home" to myself and my heart with SPT. Grounded in science, and deeply intuitive, SPT has become a way of life and my lens for the world. The skills I learned through SPT have become foundational to my therapy, consultation, and supervision.
No one is an island. Working as a preschool teacher, early childhood mental health consultant, school-based therapist, school counseling intern, and partner with the medical community and various non-profits such as our Childrens Advocacy Center, I have a passion for connecting with support systems. We are all part of a larger system.
Being a Therapist
Being in private practice can be isolating...even being in community mental health can be challenging! Creating support systems for therapists through consultation and supervision not only hones skills, it provides depth in connection for others.
