Sophia Alesi, LMSW
Sophia received her masters degree at Fordham University and has over two years of experience providing counseling in different settings such as an OMH/OASAS clinic, and a charter elementary school. She has also volunteered in a variety of settings including English classrooms for adult refugees, numerous homeless shelters for a broad range of populations, free food and clothing distribution settings, and more.
Sophia's main theoretical orientations are conflict theory, and attachment theory, and she places emphasis on viewing clients and their circumstances through an intersectional lens. Sophia sees clients struggling with anxiety, depression, sexual issues, and more, and uses an eclectic mix of approaches including
person-centered, CBT, and DBT. Sophia strives to create a comfortable and inclusive environment by having unconditional respect, compassion, and care towards the client. She is non-judgemental and does not police her client’s language or tone; rather encourages them to feel their feelings deeply and be as expressive as they choose. She also always tries to be creative and collaborative by incorporating
the client’s interests and preferences into the session as they see fit.
Sophia's goal is to be the best support she can in helping her clients to meet their individual goals. She would like for clients to feel like they have a safe and supportive space where they can express themselves and feel comfortable working through whatever it is that they need to. Whether that be current stressors, trauma, or anything else.
