Professional statement

Sophia Cuccia is a Mental Health Counselor based in New York, NY, who works with individuals across the lifespan. Many of her clients are successful individuals who struggle to gain connection in relationships or in their day to day life. Sophia is particularly compassionate and sensitive with clients who are experiencing relationship issues, work stress, and symptoms of anxiety or depression.

Sophia's approach is rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, an evidence-based approach that focuses on helping clients understand how their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected, so that they can begin to make targeted change. She also has trainings in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Sophia strives to help clients understand their thought process around external stressors, and begin to problem-solve in ways that are present centered.

Sophia is dedicated to helping her clients see progress in their lives. Her style is relational, non-judgmental, and focused on empowering each of her clients to feel confident and capable of facing life head on. Sophia is also a trauma informed therapist, she is sensitive to the influence of past experiences on present challenges, and works closely with clients to reframe the narrative of their life in a way that increases self-confidence and compassion.

Sophia's first priority in starting with a new client is ensuring that they feel safe, heard, and like an equal partner in the therapeutic process. As a telehealth provider, she offers the convenience of remote sessions to help make therapy a core component of your self-care calendar.


Message to clients

I believe the client-therapist relationship is built on trust and I understand that building that takes time. I am dedicated to focusing on establishing a strong rapport with you so that you feel seen, heard and held during our work together. I strive to create a safe and compassionate space for you to process through traumas and stressors, explore your identity and recognize changes you would like to make. Throughout our time together, you will learn that you are not alone and that by prioritizing your mental health, you can overcome what has gotten in your way.

I work from a psychodynamic framework with elements of trauma focused CBT and mindfulness based techniques. My approach to our work together will always be tailored to your specific needs! I am dedicated to providing the tools you need to communicate effectively and to better understand and process your emotions. Ultimately, I am here to support you and I look forward to being on this journey with you!
