Style & Approach

As the parent of three wonderful adult children who grew up in this area, Sonya can relate to the pressures that parents and students feel. With a passion for working with pre-teens and teens as they struggle to define their identities, cope with the changes that take place within themselves, and adjust to the demands of a constantly changing world, she works collaboratively with parents, the family, school counselors and medical providers to provide an optimum level of care. It is her firm belief that working with the family unit provides the most lasting stimulus for change. She also relates to adults who are struggling with career changes, relationship issues and the challenges of life in a fast paced world. Her other passions and areas of expertise lie in dealing with grief and trauma, internet and gaming addiction, LGTBQ concerns, and transition periods in life.
