Sophie Wong

MScOT, OT Reg. (Ont.)

Sophie completed her graduate degree in occupational therapy at McMaster University. Sophie has over 13 years of experience in mental health and has worked in both community-based and hospital settings.

She has provided psychotherapy to individuals impacted by various conditions, including OCD, generalized anxiety, panic disorder, depression, and psychosis. Her clients regularly present with symptoms that include intrusive thoughts, rumination, reassurance-seeking, and perfectionism. She has also worked with clients undergoing difficult life transitions, experiencing emotion regulation difficulties, increased stress, and low self-esteem. She supports her clients to explore and gain an understanding of their thoughts and beliefs which may be holding them back or creating difficulties in their daily lives. Her aim as a therapist is to enable clients to increase their self-awareness and to develop healthy coping strategies for managing daily stressors. She believes in supporting people to work towards living a life that is values-oriented and personally meaningful. 

Sophie utilizes an empathic, client-centred approach that draws from cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), including exposure and response prevention, mindfulness, self-compassion, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT). She believes in working collaboratively with her clients to identify and utilize their strengths towards pursuing their goals. 

As an occupational therapist (OT), Sophie is able to identify factors impacting an individual’s ability to engage in their daily life tasks and meaningful activities, with the goal to improve daily functioning and independence. OTs are also one of six disciplines that can provide psychotherapy services in Ontario. 

Sophie has also volunteered as part of Global Brigades, where she was part of a multidisciplinary rehabilitation team and provided education on treatment for depression to community healthcare workers in Honduras.

Outside of her work, Sophie enjoys trying new restaurants and is always excited to hear new recommendations!
