"I worked with Sophie weekly for eight years. I will miss her as she leaves San Francisco for the next chapter in her life. My life has been enriched as the result of working with her in ways I could never satisfactorily describe. Sophie is a special human being. She is a gifted listener who holds a compassionate, non-judgmental space. She is an articulate teacher full of profound wisdom. She welcomed and accepted all parts of me. She has been perhaps the most influential person in my life to date, and I am the man and the partner I am today because of her guidance. Choosing a therapist is a personal decision, and like any intimate relationship, it must be the right fit. But my message to those who will begin their work with Sophie as she arrives in her new city: you are inheriting a blessing.

Thank you, Sophie, for more than I could ever repay."

She offers a seamless integration of somatic and psycho-dynamic skills.  She is genuine, warm, insightful, and is strikingly empathic.  Her empathy is a gift.  This unique combination makes her qualified for a wide range of clients.”

"Sophie is an exceptionally present, insightful, and caring therapist. I have learned so much from her in the time I have known her. In a really unassuming and warm way, she brings so much wisdom and clarity to her work. You can tell she both draws from her beliefs and from her own personal experience. I would refer other people to her without reservation."
