Sophie was born in the thriving artist's community of Montreal, Quebec where she studied Studio Arts and Psychology at Concordia University.
She later earned her Master’s level diploma from Vancouver Art Therapy Institute (she began her education at the Kutenia Art Therapy Institute) in 2004. Finding that breath work and energy movement exercises were an important part of healing, she furthered her training and studies through conscious relationship trainings, The Work by Byron Katie, NVC (non-violent communication), Jungian studies, Bader & Patterson Couples Developmental model, yoga (Agama Yoga in Thailand) and Reiki.
In 2018 she took an intensive training through the Somatica Institute to strengthen her skills as a couples and intimacy coach. She has also taken numerous intensives and teacher training with Point Zero Painting teacher Michelle Cassou.
As an artist, Sophie has exhibited her paintings internationally. As a therapist, Sophie’s work is intuitive, interactive, and effective. Easy to talk to and non judgmental, she is often referred to as being serene and calm. Sophie works with both individuals and couples and is welcoming of GLTBQ+ and various lifestyle choices.
If you get a chance to attend one of Sophie’s programs, please give yourself a gift and do it. Sophie’s last program helped me improve many relationships in my life. She helped me have a better understanding of myself, what I want and how to get there. It made me more comfortable with vulnerability, which is the foundation of intimacy for me. Sophie shed a light on some of my blind spots and helped me dissolve them. The setting she sets is warm, serene and welcoming. I enjoyed it so much that I did it twice!
