Sophia Murray

Counsellor, MCP-AT, RCC

Sophia is a Registered Clinical Counsellor with a Master’s in Counselling Psychology and Art Therapy.  She had first worked at Peace Arch Hospice Society as a student counsellor during her clinical practicum training.  Although she has experience and training in a variety of different therapeutic modalities, first and foremost, she believes in the importance and healing potential of human connection and feels it is an honour and a privilege to walk alongside the clients we serve during their grief recovery journey.  Sophia is grateful for the opportunity to return to Peace Arch Hospice Society, such a community-driven organization with an immensely caring and compassionate team.  In her free time, Sophia enjoys experimenting with different cooking concoctions and exploring a variety of arts and crafts projects as a form of self-care.  She also loves spending cozy time at home with her partner, Seth, and their cat, Frida Catlo (in homage to the trail-blazing painter, Frida Kahlo).
