WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT WHEN WORKING WITH SIMONE
My approach is non-judgemental, and client-centered, with a goal of helping clients recognize their strengths, coping skills, and resiliency. You can expect challenging questions and also an invitation to pause and notice feelings, emotions, and sensations. I believe that counselling can undo the loneliness by incorporating life’s experiences in a way that addresses them instead of suppresses them. Because of my background as a yoga and mindfulness teacher, you can also expect some guided mindfulness and grounding practices both in session and to try at home.
SIMONE’S EXPERIENCE & TRAINING
I hold a B.A. in Psychology from McGill University, a M.Ed. in Developmental Psychology from the University of Toronto, and a M.A. in Counselling Psychology from the University of Victoria. I have been in private practice since 2021 and have worked as a supervisor and counsellor at a women’s sexual health clinic working with clients through abortion, miscarriage, and sexual assault since early 2019. I am trained in level 1 Narrative Therapy, EMDR certified, Emotional Focused Family Therapy (EFFT), and trauma-informed yoga and mindfulness.
ON A PERSONAL NOTE
I feel honoured to get to spend my work days supporting individuals on their journey to emotional well-being and personal growth. When I am not working, I love to balance my time with both physical outdoors activities and also time alone reading a book. Growing up on the East Coast and as a competitive swimmer, I spend as much time as I can in the ocean, lakes, rivers, and pools.
