About me

Greetings, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Work Therapist and Certified Life Coach. I believe every person can rise above the ashes of trauma in his or her life.
As your Therapist, I partner with you in identifying your strengths and empower you to discover victory after trials. I understand that making the choice to seek counseling can be difficult, so I use a compassionate, direct, and non-judgmental approach to help create a safe space in which you feel supported in your counseling journey.
In 2010, while working as a Registered Nurse in the Mental Health Specialty, I began my journey in the counseling field as a volunteer in local prison systems in Pennsylvania, helping incarcerated women who had suffered domestic violence. I soon discovered my passion is helping individuals, families, and couples rebuild their lives and relationships as they overcome struggles.
I continued pursuing my passion by helping survivors of abuse by obtaining certification as a Sexual assault Counselor through the CVCLV in Pennsylvania to help survivors of sexual assaults and other violent crimes. Today my focus is Solution Focused, Cognitive Behavioral and Trauma Informed Therapy.
I look forward to working with you.

Therapy was the best decision have made. One of my fears was not finding a therapist that could understand me and truly help me heal. Dr. Simone’s level of expertise, experience and engagement was more than I even imagined. I am finally healing from the traumatic loss of my father. I am actively using all the strategies given by Dr. Simone. My confidence has even grown. I feel myself evolving into the woman I am purposed to be. Therapy with Dr. Simone has played a tremendous part!
