About Me

Welcome to my therapy practice! My name is Elizabeth Sockolov and I am a therapist trainee in Petaluma. I use the principles of mindfulness and cognitive behavioral therapy to help people cope with many different disorders and life transitions. I am currently getting my master’s degree in counseling at Sonoma State University. Before that, I received my bachelor’s degree in psychology from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, where I graduated Summa Cum Laude with honors in psychology.

Over the past few years I have been working with people in inpatient and outpatient treatment centers recovering from addiction. In these settings I lead meditation groups for the clients in order to help them cultivate mindfulness and self-care practices. I have also spoken at schools and shelters for runaway youth about addiction and recovery. I try to create an engaging environment where students, parents, and teachers can ask questions and get support.

About My Practice

I work one-on-one with people who are hoping to get support coping, changing, and growing. Clients who need assistance with any disorder or phase of life transition are welcome. I have particular experience working with older teens and young adults but I work clients of any age or developmental period.

I work collaboratively with clients in order to help them set goals and meet them. This often includes an exploration of what you want to change and then we work together to see how to make that happen. It is my belief that the client always knows themself best. I am here to listen, support, and assist but ultimately therapy is about empowering you to grow.

My therapy practice often includes mindfulness training and guided meditations for those who are interested. I find that using these practices helps clients to be more aware of their thoughts and have better ability to self-soothe. I also sometimes include tools like deep breathing and relaxation techniques for people coping with anxiety or sleep disturbances.

I enjoy working with many different people and I am here to offer mindful and compassionate therapy. You can contact me below with any questions or set up a free 20 minute phone consultation. I hope to welcome you to my practice soon!
