About Me

As a Licensed Psychologist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can’t change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. I believe that therapy offers a unique opportunity for intensive emotional and intellectual growth so that one can be better equipped to lead a more productive and fulfilling life. Within the context of a respectful, empathic, safe, and warm relationship, an individual can begin to consider one’s life from a different point of view by attaching new meaning to his/her past, exploring new avenues for reaching life goals, and decreasing painful feelings such as sadness and anxiety through self-acceptance and an increased ability to cope with life’s stressors.

Written by E.R. on Feb 12, 2020 after counseling with Sophia for 2 weeks

Dr. Mohammed makes you feel at ease right from the beginning. She is friendly and has a lot of really helpful insights/suggestions. I would highly recommend her to my friends/colleagues.

Written by C.L. on Jan 25, 2020 after counseling with Sophia for 4 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, and anger management

I am so glad I was offered to be counselled by Dr Sophia Mohammed. She is amazing and helps to adjust her services and help to suit my preferences, where possible. For example, we work with how we will do counseling since we are at different ends of the world (time zones, communication mediums, etc.)

I am also glad that she started the session at a gentle and slow pace, and when we were ready, we shifted gears and kicked-off and went head-on with more intensive and valuable counseling and insightful exercises.

Dr Sophia Mohammed does show that she loves to help people and her dedication and vast knowledge shows. I am sure anyone who has sessions with her will have a great one, just as I have.

Thank you Dr Sophia Mohammed!

Dr. Mohammed is so very patient, and takes the time to flesh out new anxieties, situations, while focusing on ways to reflect about old issues that still may be arising. In the ~5 months I've been in counseling, I've begun to believe my rational mind, not punish myself for every little letdown, and I've started to gain confidence in myself and my decisions.

Obtaining Dr. Mohammed as my provider for my PTSD and panic disorder has changed by life in uncountable ways. Dr. Mohammed uses all the platform capabilities to assist me, and is always responsive when a need pops up outside of scheduled time.

Dr. Mohammed is such an amazing guide. She truly has helped me gift myself with confidence and open myself up to new ways of being. I really enjoy my sessions and walk away with so much new insight every time

Dr Mohammed has been amazing to work with. I was initially very nervous and skeptical, however Dr. Mohammed has been amazing. I am so grateful I was paired with such a knowledgeable, relatable, responsive, funny, and kind therapist.

Dr. Mohammed is a patient and active listener, and is flexible in her approach. She is gentle without coddling, encouraging without patronizing. This is a difficult balance to maintain, yet she maintains an equilibrium between friendliness and professionalism that is gratifying to work with. She sends you resources if you want them, but without being pushy about it. Despite the long-distance nature of an e-counseling relationship, she checks in with you if you don't contact her. I highly recommend her.

Dr. Mohammed has been truly wonderful in both helping me through the eccentricities of my daily life, as well as delving into my deeper problems. Her help has honestly been paramount to both my own improvement, as well as my mental state overall.

Dr. Mohammed is a very good therapist to work with. She gets me to think and to challenge my core negative beliefs with more positive beliefs in ways that are easy to do. She is a caring therapist who makes me feel validated and is helping me to see my worth as a human being. I highly recommend Dr. Mohammed to anyone seeking therapy especially for past traumas.

Dr. Mohammed is a very kind, supportive, and understanding professional. She makes difficult situations easy to understand and honesty is one of her greatest aspects. I always feel comfortable chatting with her because she doesn’t judge and she’s very relatable. I would recommend anyone to seek help from her who needs it. 10 out of 10.
