About Sonia Harris, MEd, LCMHC

Ms. Harris is most passionate about helping those who have been injured in their hearts and minds by life circumstances and situations, or as she says it, to help those who have “hurts in their hearts.” Through the therapeutic process Sonia guides clients to re-discover their worth, heal and hope for the future. Knowing that the healing process is reciprocally nurturing, she collaborates with clients to achieve desired outcomes. Proficient at skillful, compassionate listening and recognizing opportunities for positive change in the clients’ circumstances, she views her professional passion, skills and experience as a “Gift from God”—an indication that she must be intentionally thoughtful with these gifts and how she shares them with the world. To do this, Ms. Harris concentrates her talents to benefit her clients, knowing that she’ll be most effective when dedicating sustained attention to those who need it.  Sonia has a special aptitude for those seeking Christian-based counseling. She has spent over 16 years working with university students, families, communities and administrations to ensure positive community growth and psychologically healthy environments. She is inspired by the Ernest Hemingway quote, “it’s good to have an end to journey towards, but it is the journey that matters in the end.
