About Me

Hello I'm Sophie! Welcome! Whether you are coming to therapy to navigate difficult life challenges or support in reframing your thoughts, thinking through how your past affects you or finding ways to be more in the present moment, I'm happy to support you by providing an individualized approach. Therapy is a collaborative process and I take a relational approach to support you in achieving your goals, navigating difficult situations and supporting you in enhancing your coping skills. I approach therapy with each individual differently and begin to develop an understanding of an individual’s strengths, how your identities may influence you in the world and what is most helpful for you personally. I work hard to create a safe space to support the individuals I work with and feeling comfortable safe and supported. I value open communication and seek to help you feel heard and listened to.

I look forward to hearing from you so we can begin to develop a therapeutic relationship and I can support you in navigating what you're going through.

I have a master's degree in clinical social work from the University of Pennsylvania and a Bachelor of Arts from Smith College. As a LCSW, Licensed clinical social worker, I am trained to support people going through a variety of mental health challenges and I'm comfortable working with you to provide the best therapeutic care. I have 5 years of counseling experience providing individual, family, and group therapy in a variety of settings. I have successfully supporting folks through all sorts of challenges and life changes, particularly those that involve transitioning through life changes, navigating identity and figuring out how to feel less stuck. Most specifically I have expertise working with adults, families, teens, communities of color and LGBTQIA folks.

Sophie Nathan is a great counselor. She was immediately able to connect with me on the items I wanted to work on; finding a great balance between the items I wanted to focus on and moving toward other long-term goals . I have had a great time working with Sophie, she is extremely professional while also supporting a great connection.

Sophie lends me that ear that I’m missing in my life to disclose thoughts that may never be spoken out loud and then making sense of them. She has a gift for empathy and I can feel even through the phone/texts.
