Therapist & Counselor

Sophie is a white, cisgender, neurodivergent, queer, creative counselor whose passion is to support people in increasing resiliency and empowerment in their lives. Sophie aims to accept all aspects of her clients’ experiences and encourage personal and communal empowerment through a secure and safe therapeutic relationship. Her main hope is for clients to discover their inherent wisdom and live authentically. She is passionate about exploring with clients the ways society, relationships, past experiences, and personal identities are an influential part of clients’ ways of thinking, feeling, and being. She values client feedback about the therapeutic process and encourages uninhibited expression in session.

At the Colorado Women’s Center, Sophie’s approach is client-centered and systems-focused. Inspired by the natural world around her, she sees similarities between human beings and seeds. Both have the potential to grow and flourish in a safe and healthy environment. She works to encourage clients’ awareness, emotional processing, self-compassion, and interpersonal growth. Her work is influenced by Intersectionality, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Attachment-Based Psychology, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Trauma-Informed Therapy.

Sophie obtained a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Denver with a focus on LGBTQIA2s+ counseling. She offers a psychoeducational approach to help clients learn skills and find resiliency while navigating relationships, navigating self-identity, and navigating our world and resulting emotions. She has experience working with people of all ages in her LGBTQIA2s+ community on harm-reduction substance use intervention, trauma, chronic illnesses, gender euphoria, severe mental health symptomology, and gender-affirming surgery support.

Her work is informed by her own continual learning about social justice, systemic oppression, and self-reflection. She is dedicated to acknowledging her role as an oppressor and constantly queering her relationship with herself and the world in order to promote healing within herself and within others.

In her free time, she is a wedding photographer and musician. She loves gardening, writing poetry, wearing black, listening to DnD podcasts, and watching dystopian apocalyptic shows and movies. She also enjoys spending time with her chosen family and her two dogs, Delilah & Siren, and shaking away the stress of the world with a more-than-occasional dance party.
