I have training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy®, an integrative, trauma-informed model of therapy that utilizes attachment theory, neuroscience, somatic techniques and cognitive psychology.
Life can be hard, and it oftentimes leaves us feeling anxious, defeated and alone. With the current health crisis and division within our country it is easy to feel overwhelmed, uncertain and afraid. I am here to walk alongside you. Together we'll create space to heal old wounds, while simultaneously cultivating practices to ensure that when life gets hard-- and let's be real, it will -- you are able to embrace the uncertainty and discomfort with laughter, peace and joy!

My areas of specialty are sexual abuse, covert abuse both sexual & emotional, eating disorders & somatic therapy.
"Working with trauma is as much about remembering how we survived as it is about what is broken." These words were written by Bessel van der Kolk and are words that guide my practice as a therapist. We all face hard stuff in life, and for each person what that looks like differs and cannot be held up to others for comparison. Pain is Pain. The good news, however, is that also means that hope is hope and joy is joy. The hard events we face in our lives are teachers that give each of us an opportunity to face our fears head on and heal to fully embrace who we were always meant to become!

I provide CBT and somatic techniques (used to engage the relationship between mind, body, brain and behavior as well as calming the nervous system) which creates more ease in the healing process.
I believe we are all works in progress, striving to do better. With our innate wisdom and abilities, healing will happen. With patience and grace for yourself, you set the pace of therapeutic change, and I will provide the support and encouragement, truly listen and hold your spoken and unspoken words in a safe container, then help you safely accept your feelings in return. My hopes are for you to feel less empty, more capable of feeling, less afraid and to find more happiness and peace in your life.

As a therapist, my greatest joy is to watch my clients complete treatment feeling empowered, resourced, confident, valued, free and whole. Often, healing is not a single event but a continuum that takes intentional time and space. My therapeutic approach is grounded in the belief that we are mind, body and spirit and as we address each part of ourselves, we can strive to become our most authentic self. I am passionate about working with clients who have experienced different forms of trauma (physical, emotional, psychological, etc.).

I am an EMDR therapist who specializes in finding the root causes for one's symptoms. Using an integrative approach of today's best counseling practices and interventions, my goal is to help find and heal the root of one's issues, and not just treat the symptoms. Being trauma-informed means that I am going to pay particular attention to adverse experiences throughout one's life, both big 'T' traumas and cumulative small 't' traumas, and how those experiences have caused someone to construct a faulty narrative about their worth and identity.

Hi, I'm Sofia, and I love helping kids, families, and couples reconnect with each other and find the joy in spending time together! I am a Licensed Master Social Worker and have worked with families in the valley for over 18 years. During this time, I've had the opportunity to watch many different family dynamics. When someone asks what makes the difference between "surviving" families and "thriving" families, I say it's the quality of those fundamental relationships. My goal is to help you and your family develop the understanding and habits that allow you to strengthen and foster healthy relationships.

Life can be difficult to navigate, but when we learn to use our strengths our curiosity can begin to grow. Therapy is challenging yet the process when met with self-reflection and honest conversation allows for learning to live in true freedom. We are harmed in relationship; however, it is through relationship we are healed. Learning to connect with others provides the safety we need to find meaning and purpose.

Humanity is currently experiencing a massive paradigm shift in consciousness. This can be confusing and painful at times. I help people navigate through this shift using concepts from various branches of psychology and philosophy. These approaches allow people to navigate and manage thoughts and emotions with ease rather than remaining stuck in trauma and old thought patterns. The main idea to understand is that we are able to heal ourselves and we do this using our own energy. I help people understand these concepts and provide techniques and resources to help them create their own treatment techniques.

You look around and wonder, "why does everyone else seem to have it all together?" You work hard to present as such, which is exhausting, because deep down…you feel broken. You think there is something wrong with you. It's difficult to be in present moment. You have intrusive painful memories from the past or worry often about the future. You have big emotions that may seem to come out of nowhere, and the best solution seems to be to avoid or numb it all together. It feels easier to "check out" from life than to feel the pain that has been buried so deep. You are tired of feeling this way and wonder why you can't move forward.

Somatic Therapists

How does somatic therapy work?

Somatic therapy is a form of treatment that focuses on how the body and mind are interconnected. In this approach, physical symptoms are addressed because they may in fact signal emotional distress. Somatic therapists combine mindfulness, talk therapy, breathwork, yoga, dance, and physical manipulations of the body to help patients become more attuned to what their body is telling them.

Is EMDR a somatic therapy?

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a form of somatic therapy, as it incorporates mental and physical principles. EMDR involves remembering a traumatic experience while allowing one’s eyes to track a side-to-side visual stimulus from a therapist. This lateral eye movement is believed to diminish the painful power of the memory so that it can be discussed with a therapist.

Is somatic therapy evidence-based?

Somatic therapy has been researched and studied, and some forms of somatic therapy are found to be effective in treating a wide range of conditions. Because somatic therapy encompasses many techniques, some, such as EMDR and meditation, have been studied more than others.

What is somatic trauma therapy?

Somatic trauma therapy is based on the idea that when people experience trauma, they can become stuck in the “freeze” part of a “fight, flight, or freeze” response. In this state, trauma can manifest itself both mentally and physically—through tension in the muscles, anxiety, and stress. Popular forms of somatic trauma therapy include EMDR, sensorimotor therapy, and somatic experiencing.
