"I would most heartily recommend Sonia for working in Zencare. Sonia is an exceptional therapist with many years of working with a wide variety of populations- including age, gender, health status, sexual orientation, and non-English speaking individuals. Sonia is dedicated to her own internal work, so as not to interfere with her client’s development, which is a gift to her clients. Sonia is also interested in a variety of modalities, holistic in nature, which helps her bring a bigger toolbox to her clients. Sonia is, simply, a very good therapist, dedicated to her craft, willing to grow in service to her clients and her own awareness."- Joanna Meriwether, MSW • June 2017
