Advocate for Therapeutic Experiences

With over a decade of dedicated experience in the therapy world, Sophie brings a multifaceted approach to holistic wellness, specializing in wilderness therapy, mindfulness-based skills and supporting individuals toward their authentic selves.

Sophie has experience working in treatment centers, wilderness programs, and as a mentor working primarily with adolescents and young adults navigating depression, anxiety, grief and transitions. Sophie has witnessed the remarkable impact of adventure-based interventions in fostering personal growth, resilience and self-discovery. By integrating therapeutic modalities with adventure activities, Sophie has created experiences that promote physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

Sophie has a passion for holistic health and a commitment to empowering girls and young women to find their passions, uncover their authentic selves and find joy in the simple moments life has to offer. Sophie’s approach to therapy is based in experimentation and 'in the moment' work where she gently challenges old patterns and behaviors that are no longer serving.

Sophie encourages curiosity to facilitate exploration and to guide adolescents to become more aware of both themselves and the world around them. Students are encouraged to navigate challenges with newfound choices and an increased capacity to embrace uncomfortable feelings.. Sophie believes in empowering young women to find their voice through play, exploration and vulnerability. Sophie creates an environment where authenticity and personal growth are nurtured.

Sophie will be onsite 24/7 living with our Rooted Life Adventures students in Costa Rica.
