Get to Know Sophie

I believe that being truly present with someone in their pain and struggles can be enormously healing. I balance immersive listening with questioning, prompting, and at times, challenging, to help people see their gifts, their opportunities, and to make real and lasting change. My practice is fiercely committed to a strengths based and humanistic approach and relies heavily on the techniques of Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems, and mindfulness.

My Professional Background

I have over 30 years of experience working in Mental Health. I have worked in numerous capacities including as therapist, clinical supervisor and director/administrator.

Education, Training, and Certifications

  • Undergraduate degrees in Political Science and French literature from Rutger’s University
  • Masters in Social Work from Yeshiva University Wurzweiler School of Social Work
  • Studied at the Manhattan Institute for Psychoanalysis

Fun Facts
