Hi and welcome!
My name is Simone and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have been a counselor for 5 years and have worked with a wide variety of issues including depression, anxiety, relationship, self-esteem, child-hood based trauma, and post-traumatic stress issues. I have also worked with persons experiencing domestic violence, and have offered grief support and counseling as well.
My counseling style is client focused and centered. My main concern is creating a judgment-free zone where my clients can share their inner most thoughts, and feelings and process the hard stuff! In this, my clients know I will be there with them every step of the way to help them face life's hard challenges. My approach is a combination of motivational interviewing, solution -focused therapy with a strengths based perspective, and cognitive behavioral therapy. My main focus is helping clients tap into their own internal and external resources to process and solve their problems whether past and/or present.
You are still here! That in itself is a tremendous achievement. Recognizing the issue and seeking help is the first and most important step. Now it is time to do the work because you are truly worth it!

Talking to Simone feels like talking to a friend you’ve known for years. She is a great listener and makes you feel seen with no judgement. She’s also not afraid to call you out on your old patterns and give great tools to help you move forward and level up from your past self as you heal. I’m thankful to have her to encourage me to be my best self.
She is amazing and helpful, also trustworthy
I appreciate that Simone provides worksheets to compliment the sessions. It is as if the session is being extended as I work through the sheets. They help with clarity and understanding. She also provides responses to journal entries and allows me to address what is most critical to me. It has been a healing experience.
Today was my last session with Simone so I thought it would only be fitting to write a review. It's been 5 months since we met and my life has changed for the better. She's taught me a lot about myself and has embraced me wholeheartedly. Also, her laugh is just so contagious, you can't help but laugh and smile along with her :) So, if you're reading this: you'll be in great hands. Thank you, Simone, for everything.
Simone was a really amazing counselor. I have seen a couple of counselors now and I really only felt seen when I started talking with Simone. I came to some really big realizations during one of our sessions and it's changed a lot about the way I have been thinking about myself. Counseling with Simone felt very productive and effective. When I need help in the future I will try and seek her out.
10 stars out of 5
Simone was the best! She approached our sessions with care and understanding and with incredible insights. She provided practical guidance and exercises to help me get out of a terrible funk to feeling whole, worthy, and engaged in life. Her ability to quickly identify how I was processing things and provide useful ways to reframe and think about things was absolutely amazing. I really felt like I had a partner, without judgment, in my care. I will use the techniques and exercises for the rest of my life. I would highly recommend Simone.
I really enjoy working with Simone. She gives great feedback and I really feel heard. I look forward to working with her more!
Simone has an in-depth understanding of the why behind actions and thoughts that are in need of development. Sharing valuable insights to help better understand, and aways talking from a productive, solutions standpoint! Simone offers great tools and resources to assist with actually doing the work to get the best results. She also tailors her compassionate responses that align with my values and beliefs. I find her to be a great fit for anyone looking to better themselves and work together!
Simone is beyond a great consular, too me she is my best friend. I don't feel judge and I feel like I can talk to her about anything. I never liked therpy before and well now I love it and it's all thanks to her.
She listens to me and validates me like no one ever has. I am so glad to be on this journey with her.
I absolutely appreciate Simone so dearly. She really listens to understand the root causes for my anxiety and for what's holding me back from pursuing a happy, complete life. She is incredibly easy to talk to because she listens to understand while also being able to provide honest, helpful insight and emotional validation. I've appreciated my time with her so much, and with her help, I look forward to growing more into an independent, self-motivated person who is better equipped to tackle hardships in life on my own! Thank you, Simone!
