Sophie Loewengart, LPC
School-Based Clinical Therapist
Sophie is a Licensed Professional Counselor with experience in school-based mental health and foster care. She received her Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Denver where she had the opportunity to intern with organizations supporting the homeless, teens, adults, children and families. After finishing her graduate program, Sophie began her professional experience as a school-based mental health therapist at an elementary school. This experience shaped Sophie’s interests in working primarily with children and families. She also worked at a foster care and adoption agency where she supported foster families and kids throughout the foster care/adoption process, with all the triumphs and challenges. The most rewarding part of this experience for Sophie was having the honor of testifying in court in support of families adopting their foster children. Through this experience, Sophie received an extensive amount of training on the impacts of trauma and attachment and became a certified practitioner of Trust-Based Relational Intervention—a therapeutic approach to support and treat at-risk children. Sophie utilizes this approach to her work as well as utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and empowering clients to discover their strengths and autonomy. Sophie is excited to be in the school setting to continue her work with children and families. In her free time, Sophie enjoys exercising (especially at Orangetheory Fitness), competing in cornhole, eating her way through Austin, cycling, and traveling.
