My approach is grounded in Psychodynamic and Relational Theory. We will work together to understand your emotions, thoughts, early-life experiences, and beliefs to gain insight into your present-day problems and unhealthy patterns. I encourage you to speak freely about your desires and fears, so you can identify feelings and thoughts that you've pushed out of conscious awareness. As unconscious thoughts become conscious, you are better able to integrate new ways of acting, instead of remaining stuck in habitual ones. By working carefully and tactfully, we will take curative steps forward.
I specialize in accompanying my patients through major life transitions: Discontent with the people and activities that provided enjoyment. Self-questioning about who you are or where your life is going. Changes in family dynamics. Affairs and other relationship challenges. Sudden-onset illness. Loss and grief. Managing these situations in a healthy manner is crucial.
Our shared goal is to create self-awareness and insights into the multifaceted components of transitional experiences. Through self-discovery, you will be empowered to make informed decisions about your path ahead. Please see our website for additional information about our Teen Group, Women Supporting Women Group and Mental Health Group.

Dr. Sophia Brandstetter's Groups

Wellness Support Group

Wellness is a return to a life that you care about. Mental health symptoms create challenges and cause barriers to fulfilling one's life goals. Our group works to improve one's moods through group collaboration. As part of the group therapy session, members work to change their old ways of behaving in favor of new more productive and healthier patterns. Using experiential methods topics are generated from the group members through group process and open discussion. Please feel free to contact us for additional information. Participants are often surprised by how rewarding this experience can be.

More about this group

Teen Support Group

While individual therapy remains an important component of our program, therapeutic work done in a group setting of one's peers, recognizes that during this phase in a teen's development they are most influenced by their peers. Because of this, teens tend to be more open and honest in groups, and more likely to identify with feelings and issues that they struggle to express. Topics range from depression, anxiety, medication management, peer pressure, bullying, emotional regulation, social skills, and self-esteem (Thursdays at 4PM).
