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 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!
