Sophie Davis-Cohen, LCSW
Sophie Davis-Cohen is a licensed clinical social worker. She received her Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work from Smith College and her Bachelor's degree from Kenyon College. She is trained in a psychologically-informed, reflective orientation to meditation, and wrote her Master’s thesis on how meditation supports mind/body insight as well as the therapeutic relationship.
Sophie has provided therapy to teenagers and adults, and worked with people from diverse backgrounds in a variety of treatment settings, including the prestigious Wright Institute of Los Angeles. She has served as social worker and later Program Director at PCH Treatment Center, a psychiatric facility in Los Angeles, for over three years, working with people dealing with a wide range of mental health concerns including severe mental illness.
Sophie feels honored to work closely with people who seek a supportive space, and creates a safe environment for her clients to understand their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. She addresses present day concerns, and also explores how current emotional suffering and reactions originate in early life experiences. Sophie feels the work done within the therapeutic relationship allows for real change to occur outside of the office, including increased freedom, creativity, clarity and more satisfying relationships.
Sophie is licensed as a Clinical Social Worker by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences (LCSW- 82466).
