My Approach to Helping
Therapy is a safe space for you to share openly about your concerns each week, explore different perspectives of problems, and make decisions based on what is most important and meaningful to you.
Simone Ducloux is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC)who is passionateabout providing treatment for depression, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma, compulsive behaviors, and body image concerns.During her years working with families to help their children learn music, and her experience counseling adults in a community clinic setting, as well as young adults in a college counseling center, Simone developed a strong awareness of the important roles that creativity and self-compassion play in helping people connect with their strengths and trust themselves to work through challenges.
Simone completed her Bachelor of Music (BM) and her Master of Music (MM) in Piano at the University of Texas. She completed her Master of Arts (MA) in Professional Counseling at Texas State University.
Simone has a warm and attentive style and integrates clinical perspectives and evidence-based techniques from acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT), and person-centered/humanistic approaches into her practice.It can feel lonely and confusing to navigate through life’s difficulties in the absence of a therapeutic relationship with someone who can help you process your thoughts and feelings, and to connect with your inner resources, so that you may build skills to find meaning and worth in all of your experiences, as you work toward your goals.
