Couples, Family and Individual Therapist
Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner
Sophia was led to Marriage and Family Therapy through her own journey in healing and is passionate about being a source of strength, hope and empowerment to individuals, couples and families as they uncover their innate capacity to be the best they can be for themselves and their loved ones.
She is a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, which is a body-oriented approach to the healing of trauma and other stress disorders, founded by Dr. Peter Levine. Somatic Experiencing® explores where an individual may be “stuck” in a fight, flight, or freeze response and works with an individual’s natural resilience to move through these “stuck” self-protective responses.
Sophia has experience working with adolescents as an educator and also working with children in at risk settings using movement and mindfulness as a modality for change.
Sophia is dedicated to working with all varieties of couples, in any stage of their relationship. She utilizes Emotionally Focused Therapy techniques, which research states, is the most effective approach to success within couple’s therapy, increasing closeness, security, trust, and fulfillment. Sophia is also a facilitator for Hold Me Tight relationship workshops.
“I believe relationships are the most important things in our lives. I provide a safe and caring space to explore and develop your best self, to allow full connection in your relationships”. –Sophia Sims
