About Dory Simonsen, LCSW

Dory believes that everyone deserves to live a beautiful life in an emotionally healthy way. She became a therapist because she has a life-fulfilling desire to see others succeed and decided that mindcare would be the fastest way to connect with people in need. She treats each of her clients on a holistic, case-by-case basis, focusing on working collaboratively to highlight their natural strengths and tend to their specific needs. She holds a high standard for herself in her work, prioritizing ethics and advocacy, and she encourages others to do the same. With a genuine and nonjudgmental demeanor, Ms. Simonsen hopes to empower and guide clients to thrive in life. Utilizing clinically proven, evidenced-based methods such as cognitive behavioral (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) techniques, mindfulness-based stress reduction and collaborative therapy she shows clients that they can create the life that they have always envisioned for themselves.

COVID-19 & FLU PRECAUTIONS

If you have suspected coronavirus symptoms such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath, please contact your primary care provider for recommended next steps. We are following CDC recommendations to wear face coverings. Please wear a cloth mask, if you have one, to the office. Be aware that your provider may also be wearing a mask for protection. If you have a scheduled in-office appointment at MindPath, but cannot attend in person either because you have symptoms or because you do not want to be in public, please call your MindPath office to switch your appointment to a telehealth visit where you can connect with your provider from your home.

New patients who are interested in telehealth or in-office appointments can call us at 877-876-3783 or self-schedule an appointment by clicking ‘schedule an appointment’ and selecting ‘telehealth‘.
