Sogol Kafi, M.A

I approach the process of therapy in a humanistic, relational and culturally responsive manner. In private practice, I can help the process of exploring one’s thoughts, feelings and behaviors through a therapeutic relationship which is based on safety and connection. This way, I would like to support my clients feel more comfortable in their skin and with compassion as well as my solid trainings. Through collaboration, I attempt to understand my clients’ struggles and assist them to find answers within.

  • Parenting Young Children (Mainly from a relational and democratic approaches to parenting)
  • Cultural Counselling
