About Me

Through my years of experience and training as a dancer, artist, counsellor, and an individual, I have learned the importance of authentic connection, creativity, and compassion. When working with new clients, I love to follow the philosophy, "be curious." I believe that authentically connecting with others is one of the most powerful indicators of success.

My background is in creative arts, mental health, addiction, and holistic wellness. I take a holistic approach with counselling - focusing on the various areas of your life and helping you find alignment and balance in all of them. This approach has been beneficial for many of my clients! We must treat the whole person, not just the symptoms. I follow the lead on what each client needs, meeting them where they are at. I take a person-centred, eclectic approach whether that is in person, over the phone, online, or via email.

I welcome you to get in touch and find hope and healing in the areas that you desire. Support is not far away!

"I've really enjoyed the flexibility of the platform, the curriculum is a nice guide to explore as I feel able to, day or night. The 30 min text one-on-one sessions can feel short.. I would strongly recommend longer sessions. Overall, im making great progress with OT and really feel connected with Sofia my therapist. Highly recommended."

"I started online therapy because I had so many sensations and thoughts brought on by my long covid. I had anxiety prior in my life and through CBT was able to control it and live but those techniques were not working with what I was experiencing now. So I came here since the wait was so long through my doctor's and I am so glad I did. I didn't know how it would be doing online therapy but Sophia was amazing. It was so comfortable and easy to connect and communicate with her. She gave me lots of great tools and tricks and even had some other realizations along the way. It has been a great journey and I am so thankful to have come here for help. I can now get back to living and it has been amazing.

Thank you!!

"I like that I have access to worksheets and journals all the time and that my therapist can answer. She gives me thoughts and insights I had not come to in regular in person therapy"

"I wasn't sure what to expect with online therapy as I have only ever done therapy in person. I have been surprised at how effective it has been. I've been able to connect well with my therapist and make some strides in my healing. We are still only a couple months in but I am very pleased with the service so far."

"I feel such a sense of relief to have this outlet! Doing this online has allowed me to achieve a goal of seeking therapy that I had for years. i do wish therapists were all available for video calls. I love the advice and insight of the person I am working with, but did not realize that only chat was available. It is great for now, though!"

"These selections of therapists are wonderful. If you are even remotely on the fence about this, do it. Its not even 1/8th of the cost of full therapy procedures and they are attentive and helpful the entire time."

"I've loved the worksheets so far--they're very helpful. As for the feedback, it really depends on the therapist. The first therapist I had only gave generic feedback, and it really seemed like she didn't even read my responses to the worksheet. Fortunately, changing therapists wasn't hard, and my second therapist is fantastic and gives spot-on feedback."

"I needed something like this, it was hard at first to fill everything out, but its worth it. I had to switch counselors because if time zone :( and my insurance company"

"I love the service but I would love to have an app on my phone, because logging in every time is slightly more time consuming, especially for a service that expects customers to log in twice a day.
A part from that : quick, I am happy to have been able to choose a therapist that lives in Canada (easier to relate to) and am enjoying my experience so far!
