Sofia is a psychotherapist in Westport, Connecticut. She helps young professionals and teens who are trying to find their way. As a born and raised New Yorker, Sofia has a strong understanding of the desire and drive many have to succeed, and the pressure that comes along with it. She also works with individuals struggling with eating disorders such as binge eating, anorexia and bulimia.
Sofia’s orientation as a therapist is psychodynamic, which is a way of understanding yourself that is rooted in early life experiences and unconscious processes. Psychodynamic psychotherapy helps one put words to their current experience by exploring the "stuff" of the past, especially childhood and family dynamics. She also integrates behavioral interventions such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) to help her patients address present-day patterns and difficulties.
Sofia’s past professional experiences include working with 9/11 survivors, adults with chronic medical conditions, and adolescents with mood and anxiety disorders.
