About me

Change is possible and we DO get better! I have experienced this personally and have witnessed it again and again in my 30 years as a psychotherapist. I have been privileged to accompany countless individuals, couples and families on their journey to health and wholeness. Healing the past, relating to others with greater intimacy and authenticity, communicating more effectively and creating meaning as we grow and change are just some of the possibilities positive, compassionate and effective therapy can offer. If your problems could be solved by good advice alone, you would have figured them out long ago. Problems that are difficult confound your efforts to move forward leaving you stuck. Let's have a DIFFERENT KIND OF CONVERSATION one that moves you towards clarity, changes behaviors and results in your feeling and doing better. I provide a confidential environment for you to come as you are and discover the internal resources that you already possess. I offer the patience for you to work through the difficulties that constrict you and I'll give the wisdom, empathy and support you deserve for the willingness it takes to begin this journey.

Most honest, reliable and consistent therapist that I have ever worked with. I feel so much more comfortable just being in my own skin from working with Sonia. She is a true healer.

Written on Mar 11, 2023 after therapy with Sonia for 5 years and 10 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

I’ve worked with Sonia for almost 2 years now. She’s helped me (and still helping me) though some VERY difficult times. Sometimes she offers actionable things for me to do, sometimes she just listens, and she ALWAYS supports me in one way or another. I really appreciate her candor with me, and that she gives me a lot of food for thought. I really love her approach.

Written on Jun 08, 2022 after therapy with Sonia for 1 year and 11 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, grief, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, bipolar disorder, and adhd

Sonia is by far the best, most attentive, and thoughtful therapist I’ve encountered in my 9 years of therapy. The work I’ve done with her guidance has helped aspects of both my professional and personal life. I give her my highest recommendation.

Written on Feb 18, 2020 after therapy with Sonia for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, and career difficulties

I’ve been seeing therapists for many years, but Sonia is by far the best I’ve had. Our time is well balanced between her listening and talking. She’s so good about asking questions to really understand my frame of reference and never pushes towards an agenda. There is room to let things breathe here and just be me, in my thoughts, whatever they are. This room, along with her empathy, encouragement, support, and excellent observations, has helped me tackle some really deep problems and change my negative thinking. Chemistry is everything when it comes to a therapist and I feel the chemistry here is just perfect.

Sonia is unbelievably caring. Even though I’ve never met her in person, I truly feel loved, cared for, and supported by her. I usually cry and thank her by the end of our sessions. I am always blown away by her compassion toward me and am incredibly grateful to her for her work with me.

Written on Jan 03, 2018 after therapy with Sonia for 8 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Sonia has been extremely helpful in identifying what I need to work on and defining the process that I need to take in order to get unstuck.
