She has also co-facilitated nature retreats in Romania to engage others in their natural ability to heal both physically and emotionally. Simone has had pioneering training from some of the most renowned mental health professionals such as Peter Levine PhD, Steven Porgees PhD and Bassel van der Kolk MD, on how to manage anxiety and depression. Simone understands how trauma is stored in the body and how it takes an understanding of physiological as well as psychological processes to create long lasting desired relief.
Simone has a grown-up family and lives on the South Coast, where she participates in local charitable project for Substance Addiction and Perinatal Mental Health. She also runs successful group workshops entitled, Be Formidable! Finding Your Voice and Powerful Communication.
As a survivor of early trauma herself, she has first-hand experience in the bravery it takes to triumph over adversity and face one’s own fears. She brings her experience to help navigating her clients through some of toughest times of their lives and to reach a state of self-acceptance that was once never believed achievable.
Simone is inspired by Inner Child Integration work and Shadow Exploration through the use of entheogenic therapies which is deeply ground in scientific and ethical practice. Advocating for those who seek their own truth through psychological and transpersonal exploration.
