ABOUT Ellie Sohn

Ellie Y. Sohn is a mental health counselor and holds a Master’s degree in Social Work from Hunter College's Silberman School and a minor in Biblical studies from Nyack College. Her interest in counseling sparked during her two weeks in Haiti after caring for children in an orphanage. She has a diverse background and expertise in both public and private sectors. Her experience in the mental health field includes specializing on depression, anxiety, relationships, spirituality, stress and mood management, problem gambling, empowerment, self worth and mind-body connection. Her work in public sectors varies from children hospitals, community organizations, church ministries, housing, combating adult and juvenile homelessness, and foster care. She understands that often people feel overwhelmed and hopeless when faced with life challenges, and seeking therapy can come with stigma, but no one should have to go through it silently and alone. Her deep compassion and empathy helps make space for others to share their narratives, unlearning, and learning without shame. The framework of her faith informs her approach to looking at people holistically, paying attention to their narratives, roots, and guiding them to reimagine they are worthy and loved. She also uses variety of techniques (CBT, SFBT). In her free time, you'll find her reading the Bible, books, at Home Goods, volunteering, exploring places with her husband and two dogs, cooking, hosting get-togethers, creating art, and writing.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. - Matthew 5:4
