Sophie S

MA candidate, Mentor

 

Sophie was born and raised outside of Indianapolis, Indiana. She eventually earned her degree in Psychology from the University of Colorado, Boulder and is currently pursuing her Masters in Mindfulness-Based Transpersonal Counseling at Naropa University. She has worked as a clinical technician, mentor and wilderness therapy guide. She feels connected to the healing process because of her own journey of self-discovery and love. She has found that self-companionship, a relationship with nature and an open, receiving heart were key in finding her way home to herself. She enjoys having deep, meaningful connections to keep expanding her awareness and growing her heart space. She believes that self-care begins with just showing up and that the simplest actions can sometimes be the kindest. She believes in fostering self-compassion and lovingkindess by using mindfulness techniques, humor and connection.
