Professional statement

Sophie Pauline, LMSW is a psychotherapist who applies a holistic and trauma-informed perspective to her therapeutic work. She provides anti-oppressive and affirmative care by creating a safe space that allows for authentic self-expression, centering cultural humility in her approach, and prioritizing service provision to individuals of LQBTQ+, BIPOC, and female bodied communities. Her specialties include providing trauma-responsive care to individuals by integrating elements of psychodynamic, mindfulness-based, and cognitive behavioral therapies. Additionally, she is trained in Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP) and has extensive experience providing dyadic therapy to children and their caregivers. Sophie strives to create an open, accepting, and grounding therapeutic space where clients can heal by examining the impact their internal and external worlds have on their wellbeing, uncovering their needs while developing skills to tolerate stressors, and ultimately learning to affirm and embrace themselves fully.
