Written on Feb 04, 2022 after therapy with Semone for 4 years and 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and sleeping disorders

I love working with Semone. We have been working with her for a few years now and she always makes time for us and is able to address any concerns we are having. I (and my husband when we have joint sessions) always feel better after a session with her. She is understanding, kind, funny, supportive, and wonderful.

Semone has been an incredible counselor. She listens well and responds thoughtfully. Her help in developing specific ways I can be caring well for myself, creating appropriate boundaries in relationships, and working to overcome self-defearing habits has been incredible.

Written on Mar 03, 2021 after therapy with Semone for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and self esteem

I want to start by saying this is my first experience with therapy and I couldn’t recommend it more. I attribute my experience to having an amazing person to walk with me on this journey and that is Semone.

Semone has allowed a safe space for me to explore every feeling and thought I have without fear of being judged. She has also allowed me to see my feelings are valued and need to be heard most importantly by myself. I mean there are so many things I could go on and on about, but most importantly she provided me with a listening ear so I could talk through some emotions and a tool belt so I can fix somethings that weren’t serving me. I have had and continue to have a great experience and would definitely recommend working with her :)

I am so lucky to have found a therapist like Semone

Written on Aug 03, 2020 after therapy with Semone for 1 year and 11 months on issues concerning relationship issues

Semone is an incredible therapist that I have had the privilege of working with for the past few years. She’s helped me through a lot of lows, and taught me how to better appreciate every moment in my life. I’ve learned how to approach my personal speed-bumps with empathy for myself, and a sense that I can be proactive in adjusting my life.

She’s skilled, empathetic, clever, and above all else a compassionate ear when you need her. I’m very lucky to have been matched with her.

Written on Jul 24, 2020 after therapy with Semone for 2 years and 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, and self esteem

I love Semone. Don’t know how I would have survived without her these last few years. I mean that -literally

Written on May 20, 2020 after therapy with Semone for 1 month on issues concerning relationship issues, and sleeping disorders

Where can I begin with the amazing experience I have had with Semone Danage? Semone is not only the best counselor I have ever worked with but is a real person who can really connect with people.
I have never noticed her “watching the clock” during our sessions which I believe are supposed to be 1/2 hour but we always go for an hour and sometimes more depending on what is being discussed.
I had tried another counselor before finding Semone and as I mentioned above, have had many other counselors I have worked with in the past and Semone is by far the BEST and most effective.
I hope this review does something for her in her line of work helping other people really work on things and to find happiness.
Semone is an amazing counselor and a genuinely caring person who deserves 5 stars!
THANK YOU SEMONE FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE FOR ME AND MY FAMILY!

Semone cares for her clients. She was supportive before the pandemic, but has really leveled up her support during this difficult time. My family and I are grateful for her support and solution based guidance. I thank God I have Simone. ❤

From the moment I met Semone, I felt an instant connection. Like I was talking to a long lost friend. I would recommend her to anyone. She tells you how it is and reminds you that she’s there for you consistently not just in words but in actions.

D is amazing! She is so good with the professional who provides care to others and makes you feel like all your concerns are up for discussion. I was a mess when I first met her and I immediately felt at ease after 60 seconds. It was like talking to a friend. I’m really grateful to have met her.

Written on Nov 23, 2018 after therapy with Semone for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

I love my sessions with Semone. When we talk, I feel calm. I feel like she really listens to me and remembers everything that we talk about. After we talk, I go on with my day with a big smile on my face. My outlook on life is much better! Thank you, Semone.

Written on Jul 19, 2018 after therapy with Semone for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Semone is nothing short of amazing. From our very first session, I felt a weight lifted from my shoulders. I finally had hope. Semone was able to make me start realizing my potential, my worth, and finding happiness where it had been lost. I look forward to my sessions with her because I come out of them with a renewed sense of purpose. I am happier and more confident with each session, becoming the person I knew I could be. And it's all with Semone's help and guidance. Thank you...that is not adequate...but thank you! 5 stars, 10 stars, all the stars I can give!

Written on Mar 06, 2018 after therapy with Semone for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, self esteem, anger, and career

I have enjoyed how Semone has embraced me and helped me feel better about myself and what I am going through. She has a way of opening your eyes and your heart to what the real issues are. She is very warm in her approach but real, helping to get to the heart of the matter, not by pushing but by allowing you to reveal it to your self. She helps you uncover what you may not want to see but once you see it, she is right there with you to help you see it through. She has many ways to help, she listens to what you may need then offers many ways that may be beneficial. She listens to YOU and concentrates on YOU and what YOU may need which is most important! I am so thankful to have had her as my counselor!
