About me

Hello and Welcome.

First, I must say congratulations to you! It takes a lot of courage to seek help,and often times when we do, it's the beginning of a growth and healing process!

My name is Symone, I am a licensed clinical social worker and 200-Registered Yoga Teacher in Florida. I received my Masters Degree in Social Work from Florida International University in 2014. I have been practicing therapy for 6 years in various settings, with diverse populations. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, grief and loss, women's issues, relationship issues, LGBTQ+, life transitions, family problems, chronic illness, career challenges, bipolar and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My therapeutic approach focuses on integrating evidence-based therapeutic approaches (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing , and Solution-Focused Therapy), as well as alternative practices, such as mindfulness and meditation to achieve a holistic level of wellness. I am here to collaborate with you and together we will work to reach your goals.

My goal is to create a warm and supportive environment that is safe and welcoming. Simply put, life can be hard! Let me empower you to not only face the challenges, but to overcome them with great success!

I look forward to working with you!

Best therapist I've had so far. I moved to Illinois and was devastated to find out that she's not licensed here. I still talk about how she was the first therapist that I felt really listened and tried to implement plans to help me certain things. I really appreciated her kindness and understanding and willingness to really listen to the things I was saying. With her, I truly felt like I was in great hands. Its really hard to find a good therapist and I really do miss her. I know it was her job but she didn't make me feel like it was a job.

Symone has helped me for the last 6 months and I’ve learned a lot of coping skills that I’ve never knew I needed in my life for anxiety , stress , depression , and child hood trauma . I appreciate how attentive and understanding Symone has been to me. I will never forget all I’ve gotten to understand with her. Now I will implement all tips into my life . Grateful to have her as my therapist.
