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 a wide variety of families and youth. I worked as a therapist for children ages 6-17 within the Foster care system. I also worked with their foster, biological, adoptive, and/or appointed guardians and/or parents as well. I believe in a holistic approach that accounts for all the persons and support systems in the child's life.
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!

Simone has an in-depth understanding of the why behind actions and thoughts that are in need of development. Sharing valuable insights to help better understand, and aways talking from a productive, solutions standpoint! Simone offers great tools and resources to assist with actually doing the work to get the best results. She also tailors her compassionate responses that align with my values and beliefs. I find her to be a great fit for anyone looking to better themselves and work together!
Simone has been the perfect match for my daughter. She communicates effectively and has been very helpful to both me and my daughter. It was a great fit right from the very start. We are lucky to have connected with her.
I felt very good about Simone from the get-go. She has a way of making me feel heard and my feelings validated. I feel safe sharing my concerns and frustrations with her which made it easy to trust the process. She offers great insight and actually helps me verbalize a lot of my emotions which teaches me how to voice my authentic self from a place of love instead of feeling like an attack. I truly appreciate the skills I’ve learned so far from Simone and already I can see how my sessions have affected myself and the people around me. I’m always much lighter after our chats. I also appreciate her weekly mantras ask inspirational text message reminders to start our day or to keep in mind as lessons for the week. It definitely adds to the feeling that she’s always there and available and genuinely invested in my growth and healing. Thank you, Simone!
Simone is beyond a great consular, too me she is my best friend. I don't feel judge and I feel like I can talk to her about anything. I never liked therpy before and well now I love it and it's all thanks to her.
She listens to me and validates me like no one ever has. I am so glad to be on this journey with her.
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!
