My Mission

Empowering my clients to be their own best advocate, so they can learn to trust their inner voice and build healthy and fulfilling relationships.

 

Viktor Frankl said, “When we are no longer able to change a situation - we are challenged to change ourselves.” The key to changing is seeking change. As long as you seek change, you will eventually find it — and I’m here to help you as you do.

I offer practical tools that help in your day-to-day life, such as learning about the importance of  setting boundaries, clear communication and self-respect which helps with emotional regulation and distress tolerance.  We’ll also  practice and master mindfulness practices which will help you learn how to reframe how you look at yourself and situations around you. 
 

Some things you should know

Here are some things that will be helpful to keep in mind when working together.

Therapy is a process

Healing can take time and sometimes feel uncomfortable. Your commitment to the journey will support your growth.

Honesty

Willingness to look at the part you play in relationships may be hard, but will be so rewarding.

Curiosity

Getting curious about experiences will allow you to learn more about yourself.

Motivated

Therapy is ideal when you are truly ready to make changes to improve your life.

"It's such a pleasure sharing clients with Simone. She provides her clients with empathy, warmth and a safe space. I help my patients from the outside in and Simone helps from the inside out. I love collaborating with her. It's truly a pleasure to watch patients get better through their work with her." 

- Dr. Iris Kerin Orbuch, MD
