Simone is a fantastic therapist! She guides you through her sessions and the tools available on Betterhelp so that you have everything you need to begin your therapeutic journey. She is kind, attentive, respectful, understanding, and everything you would want in a therapist!
Simone has helped me in so many ways over the last several months and taught me many coping mechanisms for the things i struggle with. I am always excited for our appointments.
I feel Simone is really communicative and understanding!
I have been working with Simone for about 4 months. She has been very supportive, patient and emotionally encouraging to me! I would definitely recommend her!
Simone has been a lifeline at a pivotal point for me. It took some time to find her but I'm glad I hung in there until I found her. Im immeasurably grateful for her.
Simone and I have been working together for a few months now and she is been my rock. I can talk about everything that is bothering me and she's excellent at making the point of the situation and make a plan for it and turning pessimistic thoughts and behaviors into small daily practices helped me a lot during this tough year. She's professional, caring, and knowledgeable in managing anxiety and depression.
Simone is absolutely the most wonderful, understanding, and encouraging counselor. I feel so lucky to have connected with her after such a negative first experience here with my previous counselor. I had almost completely given up on this program and now I am so thankful to be where I am because of this program
Simone has been wonderful. I began working with her a couple months ago and have found someone supportive who really understands where I am and what I would like to work on. I’ve left every session feeling heard.
Simone is very sweet, patient and understanding. Great experience thus far
She gets back to me in a timely manner
