Are you exhausted, struggling, longing for more, constantly committing to "get your life together?" Do you feel like you're constantly dropping loose ends and wonder how everyone else does it? Or are you overwhelmed, overstimulated, and overextended, jittery during the day and not sleeping at night? Has a moment in time caught you in its web and you are ready to become untangled? Are you "different" ( LGBTQIA +, ethically non-monogamous, Pagan or pagan-friendly, etc.) and looking for a therapist who "gets it"? Whatever the journey has brought you, your courageous heart has led you here.

Sophie Sutker
Psychologist, PsyD, HSPP
Verified
I have received specialized training in working with mental health concerns unique to girls, women, & femmes, BIPOC, and members of the LGBTQIA +, nonbinary, and/or genderqueer communities.
I earned my Master of Arts (MA) and Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) degrees in Clinical Psychology from University of Indianapolis, and a graduate certificate in Sexual and Reproductive Health from the School of Public Health at Indiana University. I serve adolescents and adults seeking individual and/or couples therapy, and enjoy working with clients exploring their identity for greater self-understanding, struggling with concerns related to sexual health and functioning, or processing questions on an existential level—what it means to be a whole person, and how we make sense of our experiences and the world around us.

As your therapist, we will process anxiety, depression, past traumas, reroute negative behaviors, & learn how lived experiences impact the way you view the world currently. My clients often seek therapy because they are wanting to uncover the meanings behind their emotions; together, we are often able to uncover the meaning behind these emotions by better understanding past traumas encountered. Only then, can we replace negative behaviors that have stemmed from these traumas, together. I provide a safe & genuine space for LGBTQ clients & practice from an inclusive & client-centered perspective.

I believe wellness has different definitions and paths for each person, and I love being a part of my clients' journey in creating, adjusting, and respecting that picture. My concept of quality therapy includes discovery, personally defined healing, creating new connections, and finding ways to take self-compassionate action. I enjoy art, media, and literature and integrate this into my work whenever possible. Clients and colleagues have described me as calm, compassionate, curious, and a bit nerdy.
