I’ve had multiple meetings with Sonja over the past couple of years and she has been vital in helping me maintain a healthy state of mind especially during times of incredible stress such as during the process of my divorce as well as life in adjustment to the COVID pandemic. Sonja is so easy to talk to and I can confidently open up about any topic. She helps me discover incredible insights about myself and gives me perspectives that I would have never been able to see on my own.

Sonja has seen me many times before and has patience and expertise. Also award-winning sense of humor which I think should be a requirement for everyone who's councelling :)

Dr. Sonja genuinely cares about her patients! I have been to other therapists who were either eyeing the clock the entire time or needed to be reminded of your situation over and over again. Not so with Dr. Sonja. She listens closely and is very empathetic, but she gives you the feedback she thinks you need to hear - even if it may not be what you want to hear. I would highly recommend her!

My husband and I have been working with Sonja for some time and she is amazing, responsive, and thoughtful. She gives practical advice with her therapy and has years of experience and has really helped my husband and me through seriously difficult times. I could not recommend her more highly.

I recently started seeing Sonja for some relationship issues, and she has been amazing. Not only is she compassionate, easy to talk to (believe it or not all therapists are!), funny, and insightful, but she also does a wonderful job taking in my concerns, addressing them, and actually providing advice and feedback. I’ve seen 2 or 3 therapists in my life, and they would never offer any advice or real, applicable guidance — mainly just psychobabble. I highly recommend Sonja to anyone seeking a therapist, especially if you have alcohol and/or substance abuse problems. Trust me, you will walk away from every session feeling better and better.

Sonya was instrumental in helping me recognize my social drinking was actually ‘alcohol dependency’ issues. Her style was very helpful in allowing me to come to my own conclusion that it was time to seek additional recovery help. I’m 2.5 years clean and feel that I am in better control of my destiny. Can’t say enough about this therapist... I was able to feel comfortable and connect with her about my stressors.

I've been to several therapists over the years. Dr. Proctor is down-to-earth, honest (but sensitive), knowledgeable, and sincere. I trust her which is not something I can say about many of the therapists I've had. Her office in Poway is intimate but not cramped. She has helped me in ways that are hard to say. I would recommend Dr. Proctor to anyone who is genuinely interested in change and growth.

Highly professional and very easy to talk too. Sonja responds promptly to appointment requests, and I didn't wait long for appointments or at appointments. I had to reach back months later for supporting documentation and she was terrific with working me. I would highly recommend Sonja to anyone.
