Sonya Kirven

(LPC, NCC)

About Me

Hi! My name is Sonya Kirven. I am Licensed Professional Counselor and a Board-Certified Counselor. I have 3 years’ experience in counseling and 13 years’ experience as a Case Manager serving a diverse group of young adults, adults, and families involved with child protective services. I am skilled in supporting individuals with mental health concerns such as Depression, Anxiety, financial and career concerns, and interpersonal relationships. My clinical approach is integrative however, grounded in CBT. In addition to CBT, I utilize Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.
Building the therapeutic relationship in a judgment free space is key in achieving insight and growth. Having worked in the helping field for more than 13 years, I have been a part of and observed how intervention, even the smallest amount, can benefit in such an enormous way. I believe in a strength-based, Person-Centered approach throughout therapy. I am empathetic and compassionate here to offer support and guidance. As you lead the way, together we will work towards your therapeutic goals.
Growing up in a family that is active in the field, my interests in counseling peeked at a very young age. I would say about 11 years old. I remember being enthralled in my Psychology and Sociology classes in high school. From there my journey began. Along that journey I have learned therapy offers a place where different thoughts, ideas and strategies can be shared. Trial and error are a part of the voyage. If one way doesn’t work let’s try another. YOU CAN DO IT. The end result is what matters!

Written by A.N. on Aug 11, 2020 after counseling with Sonya for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, and career difficulties

Sonya is a wonderful counselor who really supports me when I need her. Her schedule works perfectly with me -- messaging on Monday-Wednesday, and then checking in on video on the weekend. I've only been with her for a few weeks, but am truly looking forward for the growth she can help me achieve.
