About Me

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!

I’ve been a patient for the last 6 months & I’ve been receiving therapy that I’ve never had before. I still have a long way to go but it’s completely worth it.

Simone is intuitive, funny and truly helpful. Her demeanor is professional but she knows when to have fun. She had provided valuable insights, tools and exercises to guide me through therapy and healing. I look forward to my sessions with Simone and highly recommend her!

Simone is personable without ever being unprofessional, I’m so happy to have found her. Subtle shifts via hard conversation, telling it like it is bluntly without being mean. It’s been a long time since I found a therapist I felt really cared.

Talking to Simone was so wonderful and so healing! I was very sceptical of this platform first but talking to Simone made my doubts dissappear very quickly. She has a way of making you feel heard and understood. I will truly miss her now that I am quitting.

Simone has been a tremendous help through my mental health journey. Her friendly, empathetic nature made me feel very comfortable sharing my thoughts and feelings, without an ounce of fear of judgement. Simone also provided relevant tools & information to help me reframe and view my thoughts from different perspectives. Simone is the best!

Simone has been so helpful. She has been a listening ear, very understanding, and offers great advice. She is very knowledgeable and professional. I appreicate her flexibility and availability. She is always there when I have needed her, even outside of sessions in the app when I just have a question or a concern.

Simone is incredible! I was apprehensive at first as I’ve only ever done therapy in person, but as soon as I was on the phone with her I felt at ease and knew I was in good hands. Simone is brilliant, helpful, kind, and offers some nice comic relief too when appropriate :)

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.

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.

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!

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!

Work with me!
