Ammarritta Simpson

LCSW

About me

I am a licensed clinical social worker in New Jersey with over 5 years of experience working as a therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, PTSD, schizophrenia, addiction, OCD and bipolar. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Ammarritta seems like a genuine helpful friend more than a therapist sometimes. She give me good advice and always responds.

Ammarritta has been wonderful to work with. She is a nice balance between casual conversation and taking a look into things that are bothering me. If Ammarritta notices that I am trying to talk about simple things she challenges me to talk about myself and not just asking her about her life. I have really enjoyed her!

She has been so great for me, she’s so friendly and when I’ve had a problem, she’s helped me see both sides of it and understand it better instead of just being caught up in my side of things without discrediting how I feel, I have had a hard time finding a good counselor that works for me and I’ve only worked with her for a month and she has already done a lot to help me
