Welcome! I am Shari Simon (she/they), an NYS licensed therapist, supervised by Amira Martin, LCSW-R. I offer virtual therapy to individuals, couples, and families. I have a lot of experience supporting clients who are navigating anxiety, depression, trauma, stress, self-esteem, relationship issues, work challenges, and life transitions. Many of my previous clients have been high-functioning professionals and students from BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and/or neurodiverse communities. While those are my niches, I am trained to support a variety of client issues.
My style is collaborative, authentic, and affirming. As a social justice-oriented therapist, I use an anti-oppressive, strengths-based, and trauma-informed lens. I incorporate solution-focused, affirmations-based, and cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) depending on the client's needs. Sessions with me are a judgment-free zone. Listen, I've heard it all so rest assured that this will be a safe space.
If you’re looking for a therapist that just gets it and makes you feel seen, please email me for a free consultation. I am proud to have the opportunity to support people on their healing path. It's a beautiful thing to be able to heal, create the life you want, and then actually live it. I'm looking forward to helping you on that journey. See you soon!
-My therapy services are provided through my work with Amira for Her.
