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 is an awesome therapist! Very knowledgeable and communicates with clients very well. Ive only had one session with her so far and she's already helped me so much.

Ammarritta really helped me through a very stressful loss of love coupled with an extremely toxic workplace.
How complicated!
The key is she guides you to help yourself.

Ammarritta pays attention to detail, she continues to draw back from initial and subsequent meetings.

I love her, she is supportive and offers great advice, she’s a great listener, and I look forward to our weekly sessions

I recommend Ammarritta Simpson because she listens and understands that not everyone is the same. She also doesn’t sugar coat the fact that you need to do internal work with external work. She responds very quickly.

Ammarritta always gets back to me in a timely manner. She is helpful and very understanding. I wasn't too sure about betterhelp until I found her.
