Professional statement

Dr. Steven Sohnle is a licensed Psychologist located in Somerset, NJ. Dr. Sohnle has more than twenty years of experience working with adults ranging from college students to seniors. He helps undergraduate and graduate/professional students navigate the issues common in the academic setting including pressure to attain high grades, the adjustment to living away from family for the first time and dealing with feelings of loneliness, confusion, "imposter syndrome" or sadness which can result in unhelpful behaviors like unhealthy substance use or risk taking. He helps professionals of all ages to make important life decisions, build meaningful relationships and adapt to transitions such as student-to-professional, staff member-to-manager, manager-to-executive, professional-to-retiree, marriage, divorce and relationship and career disappointments.

Dr. Sohnle utilizes a variety of approaches including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) in his work with clients. He teaches clients about the subtle relationships between thoughts, feelings, and actions. Clients learn to identify and understand unhelpful thought patterns that can lead to frustration, anger, disappointment, or anxiety. Clients also learn a variety of research supported coping skills. Dr. Sohnle often incorporates elements of mindfulness into therapy to foster a moment-to-moment awareness which can be empowering and even life changing.

Dr. Sohnle earned a Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. He is a board certified clinical psychologist through the American Board of Professional Psychology and a certified cognitive behavior therapist through the Academy of Cognitive and Behavioral Therapies.
