Simone Totoro

(MA, LPC, LCADC)

About Me

I have been working in the area of mental health for over 18 years. I am dually licensed in New Jersey as an Professional Counselor (LPC) and Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LCADC). Additionally, I am a Licensed Mental Health Professional (LMHC) in Florida. My areas of expertise include Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Solution-focused Therapy, Trauma and Family Centered Therapy. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) and an Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS) for those seeking licensure in New Jersey.
I enjoy working with children, adults, couples and seniors struggling with addictions, trauma, mood/personality disorders, depression/anxiety, anger issues and adjustment disorders. In order to offer my clients the best care, I involve myself in ongoing continuing education opportunities. I have specialized training in Telehealth services, Mindfulness, and AAT (Animal Assisted Therapy). It is amazing to see how animal companions can assist us when dealing with life stressors!
I am looking forward to helping you develop goals and witness your journey towards recovery. Sometimes the smallest steps in the right direction end up being the biggest steps of your life.

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.
