Sophie came to the Dream Team as the Clinical Manager in February 2020 from Children’s Hospital Colorado where she worked as a Mental Health Counselor in the Pediatric Mental Health Institute. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Colorado and a National Professional Counselor. She has a great deal of experience in working with people, specifically youth, who are experiencing grief and loss. Sophie is proud to say she is originally from Denver! She has a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Adams State University and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Denver. She enjoys research and data analysis and has been published in 15 articles in the field of Behavioral Health and Engineering.

Sophie brings a level of humility and empathy to her work and is the dedicated leader of our Clinical Internship program, ensuring the next generation of mental health professionals leaves their intern experience highly skilled in this work. Sophie is skilled at providing a safe space for community members to be authentic and feel love and support. She loves that the Dream Team members support one another and share the same values and passion for working alongside youth and families.

When Sophie is not training the next generation of mental health workers, she loves spending time with her husband and daughter and their dog, Olive. You can usually find them around Denver enjoying new sites or in the mountains somewhere.
