About Me

Hi, My name is Kay De Simone, LCSW and I'm delighted to meet you. I am a psychotherapist who treats high-achieving adults between 13 and 45 years old. I specialize in high achievers' stressors, trauma treatment, and personal growth. I have a deep interest in your life story, and I can help you develop a plan to build the skills needed to take ownership and control your life struggles. Together we will figure out why some aspects of your life are not working out, and most importantly, we will use these evidence-based strategies to address the symptoms and behaviors that affect you. I can help you enhance your life to include more things that bring you joy and manage the things that drain your energy, robbing you of your happiness. We will build a better tomorrow for you by working together, one hour at a time.
