Sophia Cortes-Moreno, Therapist, Inner Courage Counseling

Mi nombre es Sophia y soy terapeuta bilingüe. Estoy esperando mi licencia inicial, pero he estado trabajando con clientes los últimos siete años. Trabajo con niños de 8 años en adelante, adolescentes, adultos y parejas con diferentes necesidades. Me acerco a cada relación terapéutica desde una perspectiva multicultural y espero que mis experiencias y educación únicas puedan ser de utilidad para usted.

I am so glad you are here. You may be here because you may be looking for something. Perhaps that be relief from current or previous symptoms that may be impacting your current life trajectory. Perhaps you are curious about therapy and how it could possibly help you heal or move past any current or past traumas or life stressors. Taking the time research a possible therapist is a great first step, and I would like to give you more information about myself. 

As an Afro-Latina woman, I understand the immense inner strength and courage it takes to seek out therapy. I am proud of you for getting this far. 

As a mental health professional who has experienced her own challenging circumstances, I happen to bring a unique, culturally relevant perspective to the therapeutic relationship. I specialize in working with children and adults who have experienced trauma, grief/loss concerns, those suffering from a mood disorder, sexual assault/abuse, or concerns with recent political events. I am also passionate about breaking the stigma and providing evidence-based care for those suffering from Borderline Personality Disorder. I utilize a collaborative approach with all clients, and view you as the driver of your own car with me assisting you navigate your concerns. I have specialization in Couples and Family Counseling and enjoy working with children between the ages of 8-17 and adults of all ages. I also provide therapy in both English & Spanish.

"When getting in touch with someone to find a therapist I was emailed by Stacy Ramirez, she was very kind and helpful which was appreciated because I have never seen a therapist so I was unsure of the process. I had my first session with Beth Halterman, she made sure to introduce herself before the first session which i thought was very sweet because I was a bit nervous about seeking a therapist to begin with and seeing someone face to face for the first time without having ever spoken before would have made me a bit more nervous."

"Inner Courage Counseling has a lovely building that's warm and clean. My counselor was so good that when she started at Inner Courage I moved practices so I could stay with her. I would absolutely recommended them to anyone seeking counseling."

"I have always been hesitant about counseling especially when it involves my daughter. But I have to say Brittany Roback is absolutely amazing. My daughter has been seeing Brittany for about 6 months now and I have seen great improvements. Just after the first session I saw my daughter using skills Brittany had shown her. Brittany has always made sure to make my daughter and myself feel comfortable. My daughter sees it as a safe place when she sees Brittany."

"Inner Courage Counseling has really been there for me from the moment I first called and they continue to be. I have always struggled to find a counselor that I mesh well with and one that creates an environment that I feel encouraged to dedicate time for myself. I’ve learned things about myself that I never knew before and I’m excited because I know I will continue to. I truly feel like I am growing in a positive way after each session. That’s both exciting and encouraging for me."
