My Approach

Simone’s person-centered, holistic approach involves meeting patients where they are and providing non-judgmental support throughout the therapeutic process. Patients entering therapy for the first time find comfort in Simone’s compassionate and collaborative approach. She aims to demystify and normalize therapy by utilizing education and unconditional positive regard to empower each client to move confidently through life’s curveballs and toward change for the better. Simone works closely with patients during the goal-setting phase of therapy. Simone’s patients can expect to regularly review and reassess goals to ensure progress is made so that patients can see the value in each therapy session.
