Sophia Fokas, Mental Health Counselor
Sophia Fokas is a master’s level clinician who graduated with her degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from West Chester University. Before graduate school, Sophia studied psychology at Temple University with minors in criminal justice and Spanish. While at Temple, Sophia was inspired to pursue her career as a therapist while working as a research assistant studying the developmental impacts of the juvenile justice system. Sophia now leads the adolescent IOP in King of Prussia, PA and also provides individual services both in person and virtually.
Sophia has experience working with a variety of individuals ages 14 and up in both group and individual settings. In doing so, she has gained experience working with those struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, personality disorders, and mood and adjustment disorders. Sophia believes that each individual is unique, and therefore utilizes various therapeutic approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy in order to meet the specific needs of each client. Sophia also takes a wellness approach to therapy, believing that all clients have the necessary resources to thrive within. In working together, Sophia is committed to providing her client’s a safe space for self-exploration to help utilize these resources and reach their goals.
Outside of work, Sophia likes spending time outdoors, reading a good mystery novel, and enjoying her favorite drink, coffee! She also loves travelling locally and abroad to explore new places and cuisines!
