Simone Schultz is a licensed mental health counselor with comprehensive training and credentials in forensic psychology, clinical mental health counseling, trauma work, and addiction treatment. Her client-centered and strengths-based approach empowers clients to progress toward growth. Simone prioritizes offering a non-judgmental and supportive safe space for her clients and tailors therapy to fit individual needs.

Simone believes that treatment planning is a collaborative process, and she works with clients on developing their treatment goals in a way that makes the most sense to them. She also focuses on developing an effective therapeutic relationship with her clients, which builds on mutual trust, respect, and includes shared decision-making.

Outside of her private practice, she is a senior director of behavioral health, overseeing outpatient mental health and substance use clinics.

Message to clients

Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery, and in my sessions, I promote behavioral transformation by encouraging a positive outlook and the adoption of new skills. Perhaps you feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead or need guidance on how to develop coping skills. I will support you in this process and help you learn healthy coping strategies while also providing guidance on how to achieve the goals you set for yourself to improve your overall quality of life. I have the tools and professional experience to help you get back on track. My ultimate goal is to assist you in reaching your treatment goals, and when you leave therapy, you do so with having experienced a sense of growth and fulfillment.
