Veronica Simes,LPC, RN, NCC

The world is often full of unexpected events.  Even with the best laid plans, these events can lead to personal struggles.  As a counselor, I seek to provide a calm, encouraging, and non-judgmental space for individuals as they engage in the thoughtful work of addressing life’s difficulties and unforeseen changes, while pursuing meaning and purpose.  I believe in the value of a holistic person-centered approach which supports each individual’s unique strengths, goals, and abilities as we partner to address their concerns together.  

Background and Training

During my career working as a Registered Nurse, I had the opportunity to serve people in clinic, day surgery, and long-term care facilities.  My practicum internship allowed me to work in a behavioral health hospital and a nonprofit community assistance center. I completed my LPC internship at the Wellness Center for Older Adults in Plano.  Throughout these experiences , my professional training has focused on adults and older adults, grief and loss concerns, caregivers, hoarding disorder, depression, life transitions, and those struggling with health conditions. 

Personal Statement

As a person of faith, I view life as an opportunity to serve others through the struggles and share encouragement. I was led to counseling while working as a Registered Nurse. After providing comfort while patients were given a difficult health diagnosis, offering hope to families whose loved ones had life changing injuries, and reflecting on the challenges I’d overcome in my own life, I wanted to offer an additional type of support through counseling. I believe counseling can often provide opportunities to grow and feel more at peace with ourselves even when our circumstances don’t change.
