Hi, I’m Dr. Sofya Vass (Vasilyeva)

I am a coach and an adult child of an alcoholic. I spent years keeping secrets, living in shame and guilt, and feeling so bad about myself that I kept isolated because I was afraid I would harm other people with my presence. I struggled in relationships and alternated between picking abusive partners and being single for years, feeling that I am not worthy of love. I struggled in my career as I never got proper guidance, and I didn't know how to ask for help, I didn't think I deserved it. I tried to be perfect, controlled, well behaved, and show the world that I am not in need. Worst of all, I didn't think that I was in need. Then, about ten years ago, I started experiencing daily panic attacks; these were physical manifestations telling me that something is very wrong. I started psychotherapy and learned about the effects of growing up in an alcoholic home. I began to uncover my past and read literature. This set me off on my journey of personal recovery, and eventually, going back to school for a doctorate in psychology.

I journeyed to reflect on my past, accepted what has happened, analyzed how my past had shaped my present. I learned new skills, abolished shame, quit thinking that I am wrong and bad, revised my outlook, and improved my relationship with myself and others. I now want to bring this journey to you.

I am a practicing therapist, coach, and author of the book Misery to Mastery. I work with people that have experienced trauma to help them overcome the pain and shift perspective. I have compiled this course based on personal life experience, clinical experience, and recent research. This course is created based on my training in depth psychology, empirically tested CBT approaches and personal experience.

From the bottom of my heart, I wish for a supportive and warm recovery process for you. I hope that you will be able to heal from the hurt that you experienced in the past and break free into a more authentic and kind future.
