Hi there, I'm Sonia!

Hello, thank you for taking an interest in me and my practice. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and have been practicing as a clinician since 2006.

My approach

Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Family/Marital Therapy, Art Therapy, Clinical Supervision and Licensed Supervisors, Coaching, Compassion Focused, Culturally Sensitive, Health at Every Size, Holistic Therapy, Positive Psychology, Person-Centered, Psychotherapy, Strength-Based, Trauma Focused

My focus

Firstly, building a meaningful therapeutic relationship is at the heart of my approach. In individual, couples, and adolescent therapy sessions, I integrate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) skills along with mindfulness to recognize and reevaluate how previous life experiences have possibly negatively impacted your beliefs, coping skills, cognitions, emotions, and behaviors, which might be keeping you stuck in feelings of anxiety, depression or unhealthy ways of relating.

My communication style

My goal is to educate and create a greater sense of understanding about the purpose of our emotions. I will provide support in recognizing and replacing unhealthy patterns of relating and beliefs with more realistic and effective thoughts, thus decreasing emotional distress and self-defeating behaviors. I feel it is important to share that counseling can be pursued not only to handle problems, but also to find more meaning in life, feel more connected to others and our surroundings, and increase the joy of being alive!
