Hello! Does it seem overwhelming and maybe a little bit odd to be searching for a therapist? I get it! Please allow me to introduce myself to you. My name is Sonja (rhymes with "lasagna"). I enjoyed working with children and their families for 15 years, and then I transitioned to the medical field, where I was blessed to continue my growth within a variety of settings. My husband and I have one spoiled dog, Bo, a boxer-hound mix, who brings lots of laughs to our home. My specialties include working with a variety of age ranges, from teens to senior adults. I can help people who are dealing with symptoms of anxiety and/or depression find ways to cope. Those who are struggling with adoption issues may need extra support and assistance as they sort through their feelings. Caregivers who are feeling overwhelmed with life can find a peaceful place to land during our sessions. I particularly enjoy providing Christian-based counseling, as that is an important part of who I am. I believe that laughing about life with my patients can help us explore together what may be on their hearts and minds. NOTE: I hope to offer in-person sessions soon, but for now, I will only be seeing patients via the telehealth format.

WELCOME.... My practice is called Conversations with Amy... the reason is that I want our time together to feel like you are having a conversation with a close trusted friend. I always want my clients to feel seen and heard without judgment. I blend honesty, kindness, humor and lightheartedness to explore your "humanness" in a compassionate way... sometimes we find ourselves laughing our way through our tears and pain... other time we may need to have someone just sit with us... every experience is different and valid. As a therapist I am eclectic in the way I gather information to learn who you are, however my approach to life as a therapist and human is "Solution Focused". I want to help you discover what is keeping you from having a life that you love and brings you Happiness, Acceptance and Peace! What I mean by “Solution Focused” is that I have an innate ability to identify behaviors, patterns, thoughts and beliefs that contribute to your lack of meaningful change with humor and kindness. My background, in short, I am a LMHC-QS in Florida & LPC in South Carolina, I have an AA in Sociology, BS in HR Admin and a MS in Counseling from NSU. I have been practicing as a therapist for over 10 years. I have spent most of my life dedicated to helping other people experience Happiness and Peace.

When I was a teen, one of the things I wished for was someone to talk to- someone who wouldn’t judge me, who would be a sounding board and would help me make decisions that would impact my future. When I learned that there was a profession that would provide exactly that, and more, I strove to be for others what I never had myself. I became a mental health counselor or therapist- whatever you prefer to call me- but a person who believes that there are times in all our lives when we could use someone to help us work through whatever issues/concerns/crisis/problems we are facing to help us to work through them and come out in a more positive place on the other side. I have worked as a psychotherapist for over 10 years, assisting clients with many issues including (but not limited to) self-esteem, career problems, anxiety, depression, communication skills, decision-making, LGBQ-related concerns, boundaries, burn-out, parenting, spiritual and existential questions and relationships. Every person is unique which is why my style is to get to know a person’s specific needs and together find ways to address each client’s specific goals utilizing a variety of techniques and theories catered to each individual. If you are ready to do the work, I’m ready to do whatever I can to get you to a more positive place. I would feel privileged to work with you and support you at this time in your life. You are worthy!
