Sophia Winter, PhD
Clinical Psychologist in San Francisco, California
I have extensive experience providing individual therapy for a range of concerns, including depression, anxiety, trauma, and personality disorders. Oftentimes the clients I work with in therapy are struggling with unhealthy or unsatisfying relationships. They may be having difficulty setting boundaries or are limited due to fear of closeness. I also work with students and professionals who are dealing with dissatisfaction, burnout, or imposter syndrome. Together, we work to identify and remove the barriers that are getting in the way.
I work best with clients who are interested in understanding themselves, their histories, and patterns of thought and feeling. Through this process of improving insight, people are able to make lasting, meaningful changes in their lives.
I strive to be responsive and collaborative. My style is active, and I frequently provide feedback and ask questions to guide the course of the session utilizing empirically supported principles drawing from psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral therapies. Therapy will often include setting clear goals for tasks to be worked on between appointments to ensure that changes aren’t confined to the therapy session.
