What is therapeutic coaching?


Therapeutic coaching combines the best of both worlds– coaching and therapy– to support you in healing and integrating your past while empowering you to move towards your best and happiest future.

Common themes that we can work on together:

  • Taming negative, unhealthy thoughts and feelings
  • Navigating difficult relationships— romantic, platonic, and/or professional— and developing healthy communication and boundaries 
  • Managing self-doubt, self-criticism and negative self-talk to boost your self-confidence
  • Breaking free from past patterns, thoughts, and experiences that you're used to
  • Managing your emotional triggers and responses
  • Gaining clarity in making important decisions and aligning your choices with your inner happiness and growth
  • Bouncing back from tough days and unexpected challenges with resilience and ease
  • Dealing with worrying and feelings of anxiety
  • Overcoming the fear of rejection and fear of failure so that you can achieve your goals
  • Letting go of perfectionism and accepting yourself more
  • Moving on from feeling stuck or lost in life to find your direction and purpose
  • Developing comfort in being around other people and their emotions and demands
  • Stopping self-sabotage (the tendency to get in your own way) and building self-trust
  • Increasing your capacity for self-love and self-compassion

How does coaching with me work?


My coaching is holistic. It’s heart-centered. It’s mindfulness-based. It’s deep. It’s down to earth. And it’s all about you.


We meet via telephone, Zoom, or in-person for 55-minute sessions. With reflective, compassionate, and deep listening, I use a variety of coaching and therapeutically-inspired modalities, strategic and powerful questions, tools to navigate perceptions and change behaviors, development of positive self-perception, effective self-care practices, self-awareness writing prompts, mind-body techniques, clarification of values, goals, and overall vision for your life, and many other methods and strategies. Together, we personalized your experience and create strategies to help you reach your personal, relational, and/or spiritual goals.

The frequency and length of our work together will depend on various factors, which we discuss during our first call.


(in person, via telephone, or Zoom)

When I came to Sophia, I was having a lot of cycles of emotion that I couldn’t understand, that felt uncontrollable, and that were impacting my happiness and ability to be present in my relationship. Sophia helped me identify feelings, give space to them, learn my negative thought loops, learn what my needs and boundaries were, and communicate them with more ease and acceptance. With each passing session, I went from feeling a lot of repressed anger, pain, and confusion to being able to stop my painful cycling thought loops. I look forward to some deeper work and tuneups with Sophia, and have referred her to numerous friends!

Before I started working with Sophia, I was in a bad place mentally, had several health issues, and knew that I wanted things to change. However, I lacked the support, accountability, and guidance that I needed to make the change and healing happen. In Sophia, I had a kind, resourceful, and exceptional listener and coach that, from personal experience, I can say is so rare. Sophia gave me unconditional support and deep understanding, no matter what the goals or personal issues that I wanted to work on. Through Sophia’s guidance, I also learned to embrace all my emotional experiences and welcome all parts of me, a transformative and invaluable skill that I still use as I continue to work on my personal growth and healing. I feel incredibly grateful to have found Sophia and would highly recommend anyone giving her coaching a try!

At the beginning of my session with Dr Sophia, I felt a bit nervous because I had never done this type of therapy before. I also felt hope that, with Sophia's expertise, I might experience some healing over time. Our time together more than met my expectations and proved to be more productive than I could’ve imagined! From just my first session, I was able to see from first-hand experience the potential for real healing and happiness that exists from this kind of work, and I began to experience some actual comfort with regards to some of my long-time hurts.

Dr. Sophia herself overflows with compassion and kindness, she puts you at ease, and she demonstrates authentic care and concern with a complete absence of any judgment. I’d say that a one-on-one session with Dr. Sophia is a worthy investment for anyone who is serious about finding true healing and happiness!
