Dr. Sophia Mohammed

(PsyD, LP)

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 F.R. on May 23, 2020 after counseling with Sophia for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, self esteem, coping with life changes, and adhd

Dr. Mohammed helps me to recognize my inner strength and help me rebuild myself after several consecutive devastating losses. She is upbeat, funny, and energetic as well. I would highly recommend her!

Written by M.A. on May 19, 2020 after counseling with Sophia for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and anger management

Dr. Mohammed is a really empathetic and understanding therapist and has a good sense of complex PTSD — a reason why I sought out a new therapist because my old one wasn’t giving me enough strategies. After just a few sessions and exercises we have built a connection that has allowed me to clear out a lot of things that have been weighing on me. She’s really good at identifying what’s going on and asking the right questions while providing little assignments to help. I highly recommend her!

Dr. Mohammed has continuously shown up for me in what I have always thought are these giant roller coasters of chaos when in reality she helped me realize I’m only giving my anxiety is much power as they allow it to take. I have been under her care for about nine months and I am a different person in the best ways.

Two months into my sessions with Dr Sophia Mohammed has shown that she really cares for her clients and that her materials, her techniques, and reading aids are so helpful towards mental growth and healing.

I had a fantastic time with her and I am confident that I am now a renewed person with much more positive energy than before!

Anyone who has the opportunity to be counseled by her will not regret it. Thank you so much Dr Sophia!

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 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.
