Curious how to have amazing relationships? My name is Sophie Cress, LMFT & Certified Gottman Therapist, I’m here to show you how…

Hello beloved, how wonderful to have you here! Welcome to Sophie Cress Therapy.

Let me guess… things aren’t rosy in your relationship.

  • Have you been feeling lost and uncertain of your significant other?
  • Are you struggling to communicate effectively with each other?
  • Has the spark died, and you two just can’t quite seem to rekindle it?
  • Has resentment started creeping in?
  • Or maybe things are just great, and you’re just seeking therapy to equip yourself with life skills to help you be intentional about your relationship and life in general?

First of all, I’m sending you lots of love and grace. I want you to know that I’m here for you. Relationships can be challenging, and it’s natural to encounter obstacles along the way.

But there is hope, and the fact that you’re here means you still want to try. I’m here to help you navigate through these difficulties.

And above all else, it’s an honor to walk with you hand in hand so that you can feel seen, heard, appreciated, and valued.

I’ll be honest…it might take a while. The outcome may not even be what you were hoping for. But you will come out the other end with a renewed spirit and strength.

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and Certified Gottman Therapist, I specialize in helping couples like you find harmony, understanding, and renewed connection.

Together, we can work towards building a solid and fulfilling relationship that withstands the tests of time.

I understand the unique dynamics that couples face, and my approach is rooted in empathy, compassion, and evidence-based techniques.

Whether you’re dealing with trust issues, communication breakdowns, or struggling to rekindle the spark, I’ll provide you with the tools and support needed to address your concerns and foster a healthier, more satisfying relationship.
