About

* ADULTS: I work with issues of loss, stress, anxiety, depression, abuse, sex addiction, spiritual guidance, and developmental life changes.* CHILDREN: I invite their stories that may be troubled due to emotional and academic issues. Through play, art and sand tray, I address issues of divorce, traumatic losses, abuse, adoption, bullying and low self esteem that may be affecting your children. * COUPLES: My passion is to help the couple find a yet unknown way to a compassionate, loving, open communicative relationship; to become vulnerable to the pain and wounds of each other's soul.
In every client relationship I am committed to creating a non-judgmental, safe environment that lends itself to a journey of discovery and curiosity. My approach is one of open heart, kindness and depth.
I am an expressive art & drama therapist, dedicated to the inquiry and exploration of the client's life as we travel together along the therapeutic path.

Jo Sopko's Groups

Life in the Metaphor

This workshop, both didactic and experiential, is designed for an intimate group (max. 8). We will explore the interplay of Sandtray, both traditional and thematic, Expressive Arts and Active Imagination. Our focus will be on various techniques of grounding meditation, guided imagery, active imagination and how to integrate these in an intermodal expressive arts approach. This work has shown immense potential in the practice of psychotherapy, helping clients communicate deep emotions, providing a container for trauma, suffering and loss when verbal skills are compromised, and/or as a vehicle for personal transformation. Feb. 16-17, 2019, Next: Oct. 2019.
