Sonya Belletti

(MSW, LCSW)

About Me

I am a seasoned therapist licensed in Florida with over 20 years of experience working with clients from a diverse background and age groups. I earned my Bachelors degree from Syracuse University in Psychology as well as a minor in Child and Family Studies. I attended San Jose State University for my Masters in Social work with a clinical focus on child and family issues. I have worked with clients in private practice as well as community and school based settings.

I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including ADHD, behavioral challenges, life challenges, managing parental expectations, peer pressure, academic concerns, sexuality, depression, and anxiety, to name a few. I am trained in providing trauma-informed care as well as working with clients facing perinatal loss and postpartum concerns. I am passionate about the work I do and empowering my clients. I am a strong advocate for young people and have a keen understanding of the concerns many youth are dealing with.

I am a culturally competent clinician who believes in treating everyone with dignity, respect, and empathy. As such, I tailor our conversations to meet each person’s specific and unique needs. I believe in empowering clients to find their voices to speak positivity and truth to their lives. While I primarily take a client-centered and solution-focused approach in treatment I employ a variety of treatment modalities that include, but is not limited to, psychodynamic, psychoanalysis, cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, and interpersonal.

You have taken the first step in being here to seek support for your journey. Let me walk along with you and help you find the tools to empower yourself to achieve the change you seek.

I look forward to working with you!

Sonya is wonderful! She’s patient, empathetic and warm. I appreciate her talking to my son and I on a personal level. I felt like I was talking with a friend. She’s nonjudgmental and extremely friendly.

This was my first time speaking with a counselor and I was a little nervous but had wanted to try it for years. I instantly felt comfortable speaking with Sonya. I am truly enjoying my weekly calls with Sonya. She really challenges my way of thinking and is helping me on my journey to improve myself.

Over the years I have sought assistance from many counselors and after my initial two sessions with Sonya, I feel heard, gotten, and have received guidance that has already proved helpful. She is obviously well trained and has much experience in this field. I am super appreciative of her support.
