Welcome to Jody Sommerfeld

Thank you for visiting my site.
What is happiness for you?
Wanting to be happier is a part of the human condition
At times we can feel we are not lovable enough, or are failing to meet the expectations of others, or ourselves. We go through our days as if our wholeness is outside of us. We feel that we have to be more, and do more, to be okay. We can unknowingly be in a relationship with a hidden sense of shame. Or we may not see our own goodness. We are always thinking, "if only". If only I was wealthier, smarter, thinner, more creative,and so on. Only then may be worthy of love. Only then I may be happy.
As a licensed therapist, I can help you to navigate your path to living in your fullness. My commitment is to compassionately assist you in your journey to what you want out of life. We will work together to discover, develop and bring clarity to the steps that increase the quality of life you are searching for.
How I work
I have a very warm and genuine style. I believe we are all unique, creative, valuable human beings. We all yearn to be seen, heard and validated. I draw from my years of experience counselling clients of all ages, and from all cultural and societal backgrounds. Whether you are facing difficult life transitions, emotional pain, challenging relationships, grief, distressing losses, childhood trauma, or any kind of overwhelming experiences, I will hold space for you. That is, I will walk alongside you whatever journey you are on - free of judgment, assumptions or control. With an open mind and an open heart, I will provide unconditional support, and will help you re-instill hope. Together, we will rediscover the path to your true, authentic self.
