Sonia Torres, LCSW

Clinical Therapist

Pronouns (she/hers/ella)

Sonia is a bilingual/bicultural Mexican immigrant and Austin based psychotherapist. The best part of her workday is listening to peoples’ life stories! Sonia feels incredibly lucky to be in a profession where she gets to know peoples’ lives, fears, hardships, etc. As your therapist it her responsibility to provide a safe space free of judgement to you and anyone that seeks therapy with her. Sonia works hard to continue her own growth as an individual and therapist to provide you with the best care.

Before she joined Prickly Pear Therapy, she worked in various mental health settings for the past 8 years. This includes a residential treatment facility, child advocacy center, juvenile justice center and a school setting. She likes using an integrative approach to therapy to create the best care for her clients. Outside of her work life she makes it a point to engage in some “me time”.  She is currently learning Arabic and enjoys dancing.
