For so many, daily life has become busy and complex. The constant pressure that we feel to meet our professional obligations, navigate personal relationships and occupy roles can be overwhelming to say the least. At our most extreme, we set an unsustainable pace that inevitably leaves us anxious, socially disconnected and emotionally depleted. The demands of being a professional, person of color, parent or any other person navigating a change can become unmanageable.

I collaborate with individuals to examine how their experiences are impacting their lives, by supporting people in the journey to be able to observe their thoughts and name their experiences and priorities. I support individuals in building a foundation of strategies and skills to promote positive coping. I'll be incorporating elements of Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Strengths Based and evidenced based care as a part of my therapeutic approach. 

Im passionate about empowering you with the tools and insights to tackle challenges like adjustment difficulties, anxiety, and depression. Through our work together, you'll not only understand yourself better but also learn how to validate and affirm yourself. Therapy isn't a passive experience; it's an active journey toward engaging more fully with yourself and the world around you. 

Simone’s focus areas

  • Anxiety and Depression |Providing support to individuals experiencing Anxiety and Depression is a primary focus of mine. Creating a rapport and safe emotional space to acknowledge challenging emotions is a necessary first step in addressing our inner challenging emotions. Using evidenced based practice to explore inner perceptions and values can be a necessary foundation in the work to address Anxiety and Depression. Taking the journey to develop coping strategies and coping skills is a journey with which I can provide support. 

  • Prenatal and Postnatal Period | The emotional, physical and spiritual experience of internally nurturing, birthing and caring for a child can be a rewarding, and yes, stressful period. As a mother that has gone through this process, I understand the impact that can occur on a birthing individual. It is so necessary to create a safe and positively affirming environment to explore these experiences and gain support. I believe in the essential task of creating a lifeline for support and informed therapeutic care during this period. I am comfortable in creating an environment of validation and positive adjustment to support you during this period of transition.

  • Women of Color | As a woman of color, I have personally experienced the emotional challenges that can occur while navigating an intersectional identity. Accessing therapeutic support to explore emotional baggage can be a stressful and at times daunting task. I provide support by cultivating a safe and inclusive environment to unpack the culturally diverse experience. I provide support on the journey to self exploration, self support and self love. I support you in expanding your knowledge of self by including trauma and evidence based practice to support positive coping. Let me support you on your journey of self validation and growth.

  • Periods of Adjustment | Entering periods of transition can be a natural progression of life. Occupying a new relationship, professional role, educational experience or phase of life can also be marked by a period of emotional change. I support clients in creating a safe environment to unpack these seasons of change. Additionally, I am capable of supporting individuals in exploring positive coping strategies and support in creating positive environments of adjustment.

Simone’s qualifications

I began my career in professional behavioral health at an intensive group program for Prenatal, Postnatal and Parenting mothers with Child Welfare Services involvement. I transitioned to working with Foster and Probation Youth in the stabilization of their placement. I truly enjoyed supporting these underserved populations. After obtaining my Masters, I worked in hospice and palliative care providing support with adjustment and grief counseling for over 5 years.

Following my hospice work, I transitioned to the hospital setting providing therapeutic contact in a crisis setting and therapeutic support to individuals navigating critical illnesses. My collective and varied experiences have allowed me to hold space for individuals and provide therapeutic support during transitional seasons and journeys of healing.
