Hi, I'm Sophie.

Hi, my name is Sophie Dixon. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I am an unofficial movie critic and love spending time outdoors.  While we cannot necessarily change the world around us, you can find support in therapy and discover the best version of yourself. 

I am a National Certified Counselor and Licensed Professional Counselor. I graduated from Adler University in Chicago with my master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have experience working with adolescents and teens in a partial hospitalization setting, where I counseled individuals dealing with issues from anxiety and depression to identity exploration and self-esteem.

I believe that talking to other people has curative powers because, above all else, it reminds us that we are not alone. Nobody should be expected to go through life without help from others.

I take a warm and open-minded approach with each client to focus on creating a therapeutic connection. I collaborate with my clients on developing goals and a treatment plan that best fits their needs and interests.

 

Sophie practices at the Champaign location and will move to the Savoy location on 9/12/22.

Counselor Sohie Dixon who works at Champaign Counseling

You are asking yourself if your problem is “big enough” for therapy. You are wanting to be understood. You don't want to be judged. You are feeling lonely or disconnected. You are dealing with anxiety, anger, depression, suicidality.

You fear dying alone, fear things will always be this bad, fear therapy won’t work or the therapist won’t care or listen to you. You are afraid that you will be rejected or mocked by peers. You fear that you will mess up or fail.

I love working with adolescents and young adults dealing with a range of mental health diagnoses such as anxiety and depression. I also love working with members of the LGBTQIA+ population who may be questioning or exploring their identity.
