A Bit About Me
Hello! My name is Sophia. I hold a master’s degree in counselling from Adler University, and am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors.
I have experience working in both private practice and for a non-profit organization helping individuals, families and couples navigate a wide range of challenges. As I immerse myself in this profession, my fascination with the human mind, relationships and personal growth continues to deepen. My passion for mental health and supporting others in their path to healing is also rooted in personal experience. I've learned that with suffering/pain there often comes immense strength and resilience, and I’m constantly inspired by the opportunity that counselling gives both clients and therapists to grow and change into more authentic versions of themselves. If you're yearning to reconnect with your inner truth, feel more in tune with and loving towards your body, overcome relationship challenges, and heal from trauma, I'm here to support you.
Using a collaborative, holistic approach, I will meet you where you’re at with respect to your unique concerns, strengths, and therapeutic goals. I bring genuineness, compassion, creativity and curiosity into each session, and my mission is to provide a safe and nurturing environment in which you are able to reconnect with who you truly are.
Having gone through my own journey as a client, I know that it takes courage to reach out for help, particularly when feeling vulnerable, anxious, overwhelmed, or wrought with emotion. I strongly believe that everyone is capable of making lasting changes at a time and pace that is fitting for them, and I look forward to connecting with you!
