Sofia Ginzburg is a licensed clinical psychologist by training and a friendly face by nature. She is a native Center City Philadelphian who is a product of playing street ball on cobblestones and early exploration of the city via buses and subway. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa and Magna Cum Laude in Anthropology from Brandeis University, received a Master’s Degree in Psychological Services from the University of Pennsylvania, and earned a Ph.D. from Bryn Mawr College in Clinical Developmental Psychology. Her training included an American Psychological Association Accredited Internship at Friends’ Hospital, school psychology placement/certification as well as work with adjudicated adolescents receiving treatment for sexually based offenses. Her current career interests include working with teenagers and/or their families on issues that range from coping with stress to developing healthy romantic/sexual relationships to dealing with big losses such as divorces or deaths. She enjoys working with kids of all ages in the Philadelphia Schools and in private practice completing psycho-educational testing (school admissions’ assessments, determining learning and social/emotional needs). Intellectually, she is currently developing her knowledge base and skill-set in order to better offer support for preteens and adolescents who have been diagnosed as having an autism spectrum based profile (formerly called Asperger’s Syndrome). Socially, Sofia lives with her wife and son in Graduate Hospital. Her family is expecting a daughter this fall. Although she may now be technically be considered middle aged and is therefore “corny”no matter how hard she tries to believe she is otherwise, she is a veritable jock of the nerd sports and prides herself on her knowledge of and love for sneakers. She is accepting a small number of weekly therapy clients and is frequently available for school admissions and/or other psychoeducationally-based testing.
