For many people life can go through periods of intense difficulty, pain and suffering, and it can feel overwhelming. My practice focuses on understanding these feelings with the hope of decreasing the distress. Together we will explore the different parts of you that show up from both past and present. I work collaboratively with my clients believing they contain all the wisdom they need to heal and that my training and reflecting back to you what I am hearing will help you access it. I work psychodynamically so I am always curious about how much of your history is impacting your life today.

I have spent the past 5 years working with people suffering from panic disorder, anxiety, depression, trauma, relational issues, and personality disorders. I also work with parents helping them recognize their own triggers in their relationship with their child, and provide valuable information about child development and neurobiological development.

I have also trained in mindfulness based stress reduction, so at times I combine the deep listening and interpretation of dynamic theory with mindfulness tools to help you better understand your own patterns and how they are impacting your life today. Together, I want us to understand your triggers, wounds and how they might be harming you now.

Sophie Levy's Groups

Mindful Support Group for parents with 0-3yr olds.

This group is open to up to 8 parents. We meet weekly and observe the children, reflect on what we see and how we feel watching their interactions then we finish with developmental questions ranging from separation anxiety, potty training, to limit setting, and discipline.

More about this group

This is a group of up to 8 mama's on their second child. We cover topics ranging from parenting two; new challenges, how to guide the older sibling through this transition, impact on the marriage going from one child to two and sometimes three, the precious commodity called time and how to manage a significant loss of this, going back to work with two children.
