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 M.I. on Nov 01, 2019 after counseling with Sophia for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, anger management, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

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.

I have had an excellent experience with Dr. Mohammed so far. She has given me tools to take action right away, and having her just a short text away is great for when I have an issue to discuss and need to let her know something that I might later forget. The video/phone chat option has been so helpful so that deep issues can be addressed, and it less confrontational than in-person therapy. She gently guides you on the way to a healthier core sense of self. I have felt really confident working with her and I believe she is nailing it! Her insight is exactly what I’ve been unknowingly looking for. I have been telling everyone that will listen about BetterHelp and Dr. Mohammed!

Dr. Mohammed is an excellent counsellor, she listen to my concerns without judgement and I feel extremely comfortable talking to her. I highly recommend her to anyone who is going through some difficult time.

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.

Written by J.D. on Aug 23, 2019 after counseling with Sophia for 3 days on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, and coping with life changes

I’ve only met with Dr. Mohammed once so far on video, and over our brief discussions in the messenger prior to the first session I felt immediately at ease discussing some of the most difficult points of my life, how my trauma has made me who I am, and why I want to get better. She wants you to see the potential in yourself so you can start giving yourself credit for things that you should be proud of. I am very much looking forward to making this healing journey with Dr. Mohammed and continuing on the progress that I feel like I am capable of. If you’re looking for compassion, understanding, and getting to the root issues I would recommend her without a doubt. She wants to see you succeed because you see that in yourself. I’m looking forward to finally seeing that in the mirror, and if you were someone struggling with the ability to come to terms with your past I would highly recommend matching with her.

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.
